Fangirl: A Novel

Fangirl: A Novel

I like how deeply this book questions who owns the characters in Fan Fiction. It also explores family, and how much we owe our parents as we see them as just as flawed as us. The protagonist is the best type of nerdy, and embraces her ability to write her own story, even as she borrows deeply from others.
