Description
Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl meets Jenny Han's The Summer I Turned Pretty in this contemporary YA about what it means to be a fan--and what it means to be a friend--when your whole world is in flux.

In middle school, everyone was a Fever Dream fan. Now, a few weeks after her high school graduation, Grace Thomas sometimes feels like the only one who never moved on. She can't imagine what she'd do without the community of online fans that share her obsession. Or what her IRL friends would say if they ever found out about it.

Then, one summer night, the unthinkable happens: Grace meets her idol, Jes. What starts out as an elusive glimpse of Fever Dream's world turns into an unlikely romance, and leads her to confront dark, complex truths about herself and the realities of stardom.

From the author of A Song to Take the World Apart, Grace and the Fever is a heart-clutching reminder of what it's like to fall in love--whether it's with a boy or a boy band--and how difficult it is to figure out who you are after you've fallen out of love again.

"A wise, bittersweet coming-of-age story for the thinking fangirl." --Anna Breslaw, author of Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here

"Super addictive." --Goldy Moldavsky, New York Times bestselling author of Kill the Boy Band

"A smart, warm, feminist ode to anyone who has ever been eighteen, made a mess of their own life, spent their late night hours on Tumblr, or loved a band so much it hurt." --Katie Coyle, author of Vivian Apple at the End of the World
