This weekend is going to be the best because these three friends are finally halfway around the world enjoying SupaCon. With all the anticipation of going to America from Australia and the excitement of meeting heroes and peers, how can it not be amazing? Enter an ex-boyfriend, lots of fear, and a couple of innocent mix-ups to turn this trip into the unexpected; it’s definitely a trip that will not be forgotten any time soon.

The hardest part about reading this book is the inclusion of the newest lingo, which can be easy to get lost in. I was only introduced to some of the terms last week, and there were other words and abbreviations that Wilde has now introduced me to. But those minor confusions didn’t take away from the good message I found throughout the book as the characters face their issues. The conflicts addressed by Taylor and Charlie are self-confidence, self-acceptance, and being able to love yourself. Happiness comes in turning off the noise that comes from the haters around you and letting yourself be you.
