[Special thanks to the publisher for the review copy!]
In this modern-day love story, Girl likes Boy, Girl takes photo of Boy and posts it online, Boy becomes accidentally insta-famous. And what starts out as an innocent joke spirals into a whirlwind adventure that could change both their lives—and their hearts—forever. But are fame and love worth the price?
Told in alternating points of view, #famous captures the out-of-control thrill ride of falling for someone in front of everyone.
For the love of fries, this book was good.
The dynamics of fame. Bullying. Social media plus the effects of technology in relationships. Awkward cuteness.
In this book, it was shown how our presence in the digital world create facades. It’s almost like a performance.
I hate that Kyle had to put on a show because of his stage mother, but I really appreciate his efforts to be friends with Rachel.
While there are people who do their best to make their online selves as real as their actual selves, nothing beats face-to-face conversation when you’re trying to get to know someone.
I love how Kyle and Rachel looked beyond the surface and saw each other in a different light. They have fluffy moments that made my heart smile. ❤
I like the dual POV and the short chapters. I like that the book was not all about the romance. This book showed some of the struggles in high school, and I can’t help but agree because I went through some of them.
#famous is raw. #famous is real. And I give #famous a 4-star rating.
Final Rating: 4/5
