I agree with anne1212, it was a nice book but there was way too much coarse language and vulgarity.

Oh my gosh-wow. This book... Is INCREDIBLE. It is positively beautiful the way that Chris Colfer illustrated all the different problems some teens can have, and ways that you can make those problems better. I quote this book everyday! Sure, the "swearing" was a wee bit overboard, BUT, it related to the topic (and was frankly hilarious). I'm thirteen, and usually I read EXCLUSIVELY fiction, but I love Mr. Colfer's other books and thought I'd give this one a go. I was not disappointed! I hope you all read this book and LOVE it as much as I did!
Have a great day :)

I read this book because Chris Colfer is one of my favourite authors after reading some of his other books (Land of Stories series). When I started to read this book, I was rather disappointed. The whole plot was unbelievable. I could handle the language and a few bits of inappropriate behaviour, but the story was so unrealistic and fake. It was about how there were four teens and each kid had a problem. Then this famous star from their favourite T.V show went on a road trip with them because one of the kids sent him a letter containing his actual name. The plot is terrible, to be honest. I believe the point of a story is to make it relatable to the audience. This novel was nothing like that. How are people that are transgender, gay, unhappy with a school, and someone who is in love with their best friend going to relate to the audience? I understand that this book celebrates diversity and uniqueness, but it seems fake that all of them have these problems. Also, I believe that someone like Chris Colfer, an inspiration to kids, might influence kids to do crazy things like these. I know that it isn't his fault if he wrote this book before the Land of Stories series, but just like me, kids might find this book and see the parts about weed and sex. Like in all honesty, I don't see how someone reads this stuff and goes like "Chris Colfer is the best person on earth!" I bet there are people like me who read this and their respect for him goes down. He's basically promoting the use of drugs in children. However, as much as I don't agree with the book, it certainly left a mark in my brain. It was well-written and some people will agree with the actions of the book. Stranger Than Fanfiction did make sense in the end but had questionable themes. This book is recommended for 13 and up. I am not an actual critic though, so this is my opinion.

Have you ever had a favorite TV show that you loved? If you have followed the whole series for years and read or written fanfiction this is the book for you. Loved it. Well done.
