Notes:
For Angel Ahmadi, life is only about one thing: The Ark - a pop-rock trio of teenage boys who are currently taking the world by storm. Being part of The Ark's fandom has given her everything - her friendships, her dreams, her place in the world. Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark too. He's their frontman - and playing in a band is all he's ever dreamed of doing. It's just a shame that recently everything in his life seems to have turned into a bit of a nightmare. Because that's the problem with dreaming - eventually, inevitably, real life arrives with a wake-up call. And when Angel and Jimmy are unexpectedly thrust together, they will discover just how strange and surprising facing up to reality can be.

Reviews
I personally hate fandom culture and think it can easily become super toxic. So I assumed I'd hate this book, however that was not the case. I fell in love with this book and its characters, and being honest it was through their self hatred that I saw myself. I related so much, and then with the character Jimmy's anxiety. This book just handled mental health, I cannot say well because neither of the characters were getting treated, but it was very authentic! As much as this book is about fandom culture, and fame, its just so much more. I would highly recommend this!
