  • Kill the Boy Band, Goldy Moldavsky
    Scholastic Press, 9780545867474, February 23, 2016 (Young Adult)

    The world of fandom is a fascinating and terrifying place. Watching someone wake up fromliving that dream (or nightmare) is told here with an obvious love for the drama and flair of a 1980s cult film. I loved this book, and cannot wait for more from Moldavsky.

    Imagine that you are a teenage girl and your one obsession in life is a boy band. You have fantasized about meeting your boy, written fanfiction about him, daydreamed about your first kiss… and then you’re in a hotel with your three equally obsessed friends and opportunity knocks, or rather one of your friends knocks out her favorite boy bander and the three of you hold him hostage in your room. Welcome to this book. Very funny and embarrassingly honest about the inner workings of fandom, Kill the Boy Band managed to constantly surprise me and keep me rapidly turning pages. Like a train wreck, you can’t look away from this fast, insane read

    In Goldy Moldavasky’s wickedly funny debut, Kill the Boy Band, four friends kidnap a member of the hot boy band of the moment, The Ruperts. Reminiscent of the movie Heathers and smartly sprinkled with references to ’80s teen movies, Kill the Boy Band is also a commentary on society’s obsession with the celebrity of the moment. Beware the pink tights!
