If you’re like us, you’re constantly on the lookout for a cute YA romance. For this week’s fangirl corner, we’ll be talking about Kenneth Logan’s adorable novel, True Letters from a Fictional Life.
James Liddell has the perfect life: he’s a star athlete with an adorable girlfriend and great friends. But James also has secrets, and he writes them all down in letters to his friends and family—letters that he, of course, never plans on sending. When the letters are sent out to everyone, a-la To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, James must come to terms with his new, honest life—and solve the mystery of who sent the letters!
But it’s not all bad. In the midst of the chaos and being rejected by his best friend, James meets Topher. You guys, we are seriously obsessed with James and Topher. They have it all: the meet-cute at a party, the instant connection, the to-die-for adorable relationship. Unlike angsty (though delightful!) books like Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, True Letters from a Fictional Life portrays a gay couple who are all butterflies-in-your-stomach and fluff. So. Much. Fluff. There are walks in the park. Kisses by the river. Basically, everything we’ve ever wanted.
It’s safe to say that whether you’re looking for a cute romance, a fuzzy story about friendship, or, like us, just really like the alligator PEZ machine on the cover, True Letters from a Fictional Life is your next great read.
