"A thrilling romp through a fangirl fantasy in which everything crashes and burns and the heroine emerges stronger."—Kirkus
"Grace and the Fever reads a lot like how loving a boy band feels: you think it’s cute at first and then suddenly you find yourself so enthralled that you just need more and more and you hope your family isn't too concerned because yep you are definitely obsessed. Super addictive." —Goldy Moldavsky, New York Times bestselling author of Kill the Boy Band
"A wise, bittersweet coming-of-age story for the thinking fangirl." —Anna Breslaw, author of Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here
"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
"Grace and the Fever is a warm and thoughtful exploration of fannishness in all its multifaceted complexity, and it’s a sweet-natured coming of age story too. But most of all, it’s a love letter to band fandom, and all the funny, obsessive, reviled teenage girls who created it." —Vox

Really, this book is so much more than a romance, coming-of-age story, or a book about a boyband. While I love all three of those things, this book is great because it gives us Grace, who so many of us will see in our younger or current selves. Grace reminds us what it is like to love something wholeheartedly, to find people who understand us, and to wonder how to reconcile our internal selves with our loved ones' perception of us. These universal themes make this a good read for anyone, and especially for anyone who is going through or has been through the transition from the teen years to adulthood.
I think this book will be particularly special to anyone who has engaged in fandom of any kind. I laughed out loud at times because of how accurate Romanoff's version of modern fandom is. Most delightful, though, was getting to see (at least a version of) the other side: the life of young celebrities confronted with passionate fans and constant media scrutiny. Grace's story shows a balanced view of fandom without judgment, but also provides food for thought for anyone who has engaged in our celebrity culture without necessarily thinking through the consequences.
