Fangirl by Ken Baker. While staring you straight in the eye, far above the tips of her Toms, Josie Brant would swear that she does not like Peter Maxx, the teen sensation who causes every girl within a foot radius to scream at ear-shattering decibels. Even if Josie may completely, totally, and unequivocally be his biggest fan.
So when Josie finds out her best friend has won a contest to meet While staring you straight in the eye, far above the tips of her Toms, Josie Brant would swear that she does not like Peter Maxx, the teen sensation who causes every girl within a foot radius to scream at ear-shattering decibels. So when Josie finds out her best friend has won a contest to meet Peter by stealing one of Josie’s songs, Josie is overwhelmingly shocked and upset—some of which flies out the window when Ashley introduces Josie to Peter as well.
And suddenly, in a whirlwind of Tweets, IMs, texts, and phone calls, Josie finds herself in the middle of a flirtatious friendship that has the potential for complete harmony. But just when everything seems pitch-perfect, the paparazzi flashbulbs explode, along with any notion of a fairy-tale romance.

Fangirl by Ken Baker
Oct 04, Maria rated it did not like it Shelves: I’ve had this book since September but GR claims it came out on the second? Honestly, I read this book because I’m a sucker for romance. And I finished it through obligation. But I did not like this book. First off, I kinda felt like things were advertised to me. HP, facebook, twitter, JB, even just through mentions. Nothing wrong bajer some of these, but UGH. I don’t like like when authors mention other things. The second I’m slightly confused.
The second thing the constant “!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will now share something as a writer I feel: Your point is conveyed just as well if you let us add the exclamation marks in our head. Then we have how Josie talked. THIS is how we learn to stereotype girls. Dear giant pancake batter, help me. Anyway, Josie goes to a concert in the start, fanhirl herself on being sensible unlike everyone else, who’s like this: Then Josie wins a hug from a song writing competition from whaz-his-face.
He likes her lyrics, they text and whatnot. Then there’s a scandal. And he doesn’t believe her. This is all despite the fact he’s just popped up every couple chapters And has a two line tantrum and how all they are is friends. And the book basically ends with a call.
Which I’d of len up after Peter apologized. But being a romance, she forgives him. Just when I thought bakfr was getting a spine. What I fangifl it would be something like though not entirely fitting, pretty good concept: View all 3 comments. Nov 04, Courtney Lavallee rated it really liked it. I picked up this book because I thought it might be good. This book was true. It was true in the sense that every abker thing that happened bzker the book, happen for real life teenage girls. Seeing your favorite singer in concert?
Freaking out with your best friend? Fighting with your parents? This book took all things that happen to a fangirl and wrote it down in a way that made you realize how crazy girls are over teenage boy singers; how girls I picked up this men because I thought it might be good.
This book took all things that happen to a fangirl and wrote it down in a way that made you realize how crazy girls are over teenage boy singers; how girls will say just about anything to get what they want; and how important family is.
I recommend this book to guys and girls because this book is told in the perspective of both main characters and it helps understand why girls do things and why guys do things.
This book was a true account of life of a fangirl and singer. Feb 28, Jessy rated it it was amazing. I was really into this! I thought it was the cutest YA book I’ve read in a while! Peter is the hot rock star teenager dying to be normal and Josie is the normal teenager totally obsessed with Peter the rock star. But she also can “see” the person no one else can. That’s just what Peter needs.
We get join these two in a sweet young love adventure between tweets and texts. We are a part of their journey in discovering who they are and who they want to be.
This is bake awesome read!
I give this book I was really into this! I give this book my thumbs up for sure!
Nov 21, Ellie rated it did not like it Shelves: This book was just baked awful from the writing to the plot to the characters and everything in between. You shouldn’t even be able to TELL but the characters were so obviously stereotypical teenagers, I think only an eight year old could possibly enjoy this the cover claims the book is for 12 and up. Save that for social media, this is a BOOK for cryin’ out loud. And really, who talks like Blah.
And really, who talks like “totes”, “supes”, and “BBFFs”? Awful ‘word choice’ tangirl standing, The rest of the book was just as bad. The characters were just plain poorly done, awful in every sense. Our main protagonist and the culprit of all our awful word choosing, is a high school loner and inspiring songwriter -That’s another thing I had an issue with, her lyrics were AWFUL, couldn’t even pass as poetry!
She is just a fourteen year old kid, at one point she thinks she is an Adult while lying to her mother and sneaking off on a trip to Las Vegasand that just made me laugh! After meeting Josie for the first time, over a billion other fans, he simply can’t get this one out of his mind!
So what does he do? He becomes kej buddies because he feels “he can just be his true self! This whole book was a mess! I think it might have tried too hard to focus on both characters, but really, each individual page could hardly stand by itself. I came in with high expectations for this book, despite the average 3 stars it has on Goodreads. Normally, I am a sucker for any book, movie, or tv show that centers around the music industry or performing arts school, but those expectations went down the drain By page 8 where the first acronym appeared.
The first Hashtag appeared on page one. Also, I tried this book because it popped up in my search for Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl I read her’s firstand maybe my expectations were too high because they coincidentally had the same title. I’ll never know, I’ll just regret the time I wasted dragging out time before I Really had to keep reading Baker’s Fangirl Sep 19, Brittan rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review was originally posted on my book blog: Written By Brittan Fangirl is a fun read with meaningful undertones.
The characters are all really vaker to read about. The storyline blow me away. Ken Baker did a incredible job ba,er this book. Josie’s fairytale begins at a concert when she makes eye contact with teen sensation Peter Maxx. The day after the concert Josie finds out that her friend Ashely stole her song and sang it for a Peter Maxx contest and then won the chance to meet Peter Ma This review was originally posted on my book blog:
