Description-

  • John Hughes meets Comic Con in this novel about a teenager who is trying to get his best friend to fall in love with him that's an "unabashed love letter and delightful inside joke for comic enthusiasts" (Kirkus Reviews).
    Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy...
    Archie and Veronica...
    Althena and Noth...
    ...Graham and Roxy?

    Graham met his best friend, Roxana, when he moved into her neighborhood eight years ago, and she asked him which Hogwarts house he'd be sorted into. Graham has been in love with her ever since.

    But now they're sixteen, still neighbors, still best friends. And Graham and Roxy share more than ever—moving on from their Harry Potter obsession to a serious love of comic books.

    When Graham learns that the creator of their favorite comic, The Chronicles of Althena, is making a rare appearance at this year's New York Comic Con, he knows he must score tickets. And the event inspires Graham to come up with the perfect plan to tell Roxy how he really feels about her. He's got three days to woo his best friend at the coolest, kookiest con full of superheroes and supervillains. But no one at a comic book convention is who they appear to be...even Roxy. And Graham is starting to realize fictional love stories are way less complicated than real-life ones.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from April 18, 2016
    Tash (Three Day Summer) captures the joy and pain of a 16-year-old writer pining over his best friend and comic book collaborator. Graham and Roxy have been close for years, sharing hopes, dreams, and an undying passion for all things geeky. Both are obsessed with Robert Zinc, the legendary and reclusive creator of their favorite comic. With New York Comic Con at hand, Graham wants to make everything perfect for Roxy so that he can declare his love for her. Nothing goes according to plan, of course, from a British hottie attracting Roxy’s attention to a mob keeping them from getting tickets to Zinc’s only panel. Closely paralleling the John Hughes movies Graham and Roxy love, the plot unfolds amid abundant references to geek culture (at one point, Graham stops a thief using a quote from The Princess Bride). As Tash introduces a cast of charming, goofy, and diverse characters, she uses the hopeful voice of a young man in the throes of first love to gently poke fun at fandom while celebrating the passion and camaraderie of the community. Ages 14–up. Agent: Victoria Marini, Gelfman Schneider.
