I would give this book 3.5 for a review.


Seventeen-year-old Bex is thrilled when she gets an internship on her favorite tv show, Silver Falls. Unfortunately, the internship isn’t quite what she expected… instead of sitting in a crowded writer’s room volleying ideas back and forth, Production Interns are stuck picking up the coffee.

Determined to prove her worth as a writer, Bex drafts her own script and shares it with the head writer—who promptly reworks it and passes it off as his own! Bex is understandably furious, yet…maybe this is just how the industry works? But when they rewrite her proudly lesbian character as straight, that’s the last straw! It’s time for Bex and her crush to fight back. 

Jen Wilde’s newest novel is both a fun, diverse love story and a very relevant, modern take on the portrayal of LGBT characters in media.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. I thought this book was a book the was prefect about fandoms, t.v show life and also being in writers room. The show this book was about reminded me so much of the teen wolf fandoms. I really enjoyed this novel and flew through it and it was such a fast pace read. I also really loved the diversity of this novel and was super impressed by it. This book really reminded me of the tensions and hollywood drama that was focused in geekerlla and princess and the fangirl. I really enjoyed this read and iff you like books about fandom life and geek culture and also diverse reads and standing up for what you believe, you should check out this read!
