When Goth Girl enters fanboy's life and renames him, the result is amazing chemistry than keeps the reader turning pages until the book is over. And then, you'll realize it's a series and move on to GOTH GIRL RISING just as quickly as I did. I literally put one book down and picked the next one up. Goth Girl is strong (on the surface) and a complicated mess of a girl inside. Who isn't complicated when they've got blue black hair and permanent mourning clothes, a street cred you don't want to mess with, drives like that Meatloaf song, and smokes like a housefire?
You wouldn't think there could ever be a couple as different as this, but something about the bizarre combination makes it ASTONISHING. See? He warned you up front.
I love the story within the story framework and the nuances of Goth lingo with Comic Boy Geek Speak. Two disparate languages converging in one beautiful story you'll be glad you read.
