Number of Pages: 256 Pages (Hardcover)
John Hughes meets Comic Con in this hilarious, unabashedly romantic, coming-of-age novel about a teenager who is trying to get his best friend to fall in love with him from the author of Three Day Summer.
Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy...
Archie and Veronica...
Althena and Noth...
...Graham and Roxy?
Graham met his best friend, Roxana, when he moved into her neighborhood eight years ago, and she asked him which Hogwarts house he’d be sorted into. Graham has been in love with her ever since.
But now they’re sixteen, still neighbors, still best friends. And Graham and Roxy share more than ever—moving on from their Harry Potter obsession to a serious love of comic books.
When Graham learns that the creator of their favorite comic, The Chronicles of Althena, is making a rare appearance at this year’s New York Comic Con, he knows he must score tickets. And the event inspires Graham to come up with the perfect plan to tell Roxy how he really feels about her. He’s got three days to woo his best friend at the coolest, kookiest con full of superheroes and supervillains. But no one at a comic book convention is who they appear to be...even Roxy. And Graham is starting to realize fictional love stories are way less complicated than real-life ones. (goodreads.com)
This book just sounds like one heck of a lot of fun, lols and giggles if you ask me! I mean there's comic books, comic con, neediness and a boy who tries to woo his best friend using the former? Sign me up asap. Something like that, teens who love comic books and are nerdy, this sounds like a book inspired by life, unlike some books where teens are 50 year old philosophers with degrees and everything. I cannot wait to get my hand on this because I'm sure it'll be a blast!
