Description

Debut author Jilly Gagnon bursts onto the scene with a story equal parts bite and romance, perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Jennifer E. Smith, about falling for someone in front of everyone. 

In this modern day love story: Girl likes boy. Girl snaps photo and posts it online. Boy becomes insta-famous. And what starts out as an innocent photo turns into a whirlwind adventure that forces them both to question whether fame—and love—are worth the price…and changes both of their lives forever.

Told from alternating points of view, #famous captures the sometimes-crazy thrill ride of social media and the equally messy but wonderful moments of liking someone in real life.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 21, 2016 – Inspired by the “Alex from Target” phenomenon, debut author Gagnon dives into the perils of social media and the allure of fame after a teen’s online post goes viral. High school junior Rachel, a geeky outsider who hopes to become a playwright, has a crush on senior lacrosse star Kyle. After Rachel snaps a photo of Kyle looking adorable in his Burger Barn uniform and posts it on the social network Flit, Kyle is suddenly a star with in-person groupies, hordes of online devotees, and media coverage. Rachel, however, is subjected to ugly comments about her looks and weight from girls near and far, until a producer suggests that Kyle pull Rachel into his orbit by asking her to homecoming on television. Through Kyle and Rachel’s alternating points of view, Gagnon explores online trolling, instant celebrity, and social media frenzies with sensitivity and humor. Although the story follows a fairly predictable trajectory, it has plenty to say about how the targets of Internet celebrity are treated, and how those experiences can differ depending on one’s gender. Ages 13–up.
