Return to the geek-tastic world of Starfield fandom with a tale of a superstar and a superfan who swap lives in this sweet and funny companion novel to GEEKERELLA. Movie star Jessica Stone can't go up onstage at another con and pretend to love Starfield anymore--except that she's contractually obligated. She never dreamed she'd be playing Princess Amara for life, but people love Princess Amara, and for better or worse, Princess Amara has Jessica Stone's face. But. it turns out, so does someone else. Imogen Weatherby is just another Starfield fan hitting up ExcelsiCon--except that she happens to look an awful lot like Jessica Stone (and no, you're not the first one to point it out). When Jess spots Imogen, she has a brilliant idea: swap places. Jessica can live her life out of the spotlight while Imogen pretends to be her on the rest of the con circuit, and Imogen can ditch her crappy barista job and finally get to see something beyond her hometown. But Jess doesn't anticipate actually liking Imogen's life--or Imogen's gorgeous best friend, Hana, who might just be the person Jess needs to forget about her ex. And Imogen loves being Jess Stone--and might even love this super talented artist, Tamaki, who she keeps bumping into. Except Tamaki thinks she's Jessica Stone. When an obsessive fan finds out the truth and threatens to expose Jess for the fake geek girl she is, it will take both Jess and Imogen to stand up for the truth: That there is no such thing as a fake geek girl. That if you are a fan, then you are accepted. And that even if you aren't a fan, you are worthy. That you are not invisible. That what you love matters. From the acclaimed author of Geekerella, this geeky spin on The Prince and the Pauper is a perfect story for geek girls of every fandom.

"Geekerella" has been one of my favourite books that I've read in the last few years, perhaps ever, so the follow up had a bit to live up to. No disappointment from me. Ms. Poston totally gets it. She gets what it means to be a fan, how much it means to us, and how magical a con can be. I love that she set the entirety of this story at a convention, with all the wackiness and love that goes with it. I was attending my city's biggest fan convention while I was reading this, so that made it extra special. The characters are great, both old and new. I can't wait to read the next book.

Good sequel to Geekerella. Set two years later after the story of Geekerella we follow the character of Jessica and her look alike Imogen. When Jessica loses the precious script to the 2nd Starfield movie she decides to change place with Imogen in order to save her acting life. But Imogen thinks she might be falling for Jess's manager and Jess for Imogen's best friend. But in the end it will come down to this, "What will you give up for your love?" 14+

Much like Geekerella, this was a retelling of the Prince and the Pauper set during a Comic-con, and the cast of characters is handled deftly. Jessica Stone, the Star, learns what a pain she has been and Imogen, her "poor" doppelganger, learns she has more to offer than she thinks. There's great reminders of the previous book, and it's a fun story. Props for a very wide and inclusive cast!

Review excerpt: "'The Princess and the Fangirl' is a romantic YA retelling of 'The Prince and the Pauper', set at a science fiction convention. This book, the second in the 'Geekerella' series, includes a f/f romance and a f/m romance but is primarily about the personal growth of the two heroines, Jessica and Imogene. It is lighter than a piece of glitter but does a good job of capturing the crowded, crazy convention world. You can certainly get into this book without having read 'Geekerella' but the story does make references to it."

This was a really upbeat, fun story to read! It is a quirky, slightly silly, and overall enjoyable love note to the world of fandom. There are lots of tiny easter eggs that made me smile, and I absolutely fell in love with the queer love story. Definitely a must-read for the summer!
