Review: #famous by Jilly Gagnon


Goodreads Description:
In this modern-day love story, Girl likes Boy, Girl takes photo of Boy and posts it online, Boy becomes accidentally insta-famous. And what starts out as an innocent joke spirals into a whirlwind adventure that could change both their lives—and their hearts—forever. But are fame and love worth the price?

Told in alternating points of view, #famous captures the out-of-control thrill ride of falling for someone in front of everyone.

I LOVED this book from the very beginning.
Throughout the whole book I couldn't help but think of this guy

Alex from Target anyone? 
Rachel and Kyle are charming and cute and goals.
In the book we also see Twitter as "Flit" and Ellen and Laura.
Rachel and Kyle live in a small town in Minnesota when Rachel posted a picture of Kyle at work with #idlikefrieswiththat directed to her best friend Mo but little did she know it was going to be blown out of proportion, leading to Kyle becoming crazy stupid famous overnight.
Which lets face it, is not far fetched at all.

I still don't understand how someone like that became famous, I mean.. trully now do many people become famous now a days.
There isn't, much to say on the characters besides the fact that they were likable and fun and that Jilly Gagnon made an incredible book and a super relatable character in Rachel.
Rachel was not the stereotypical perfect girl with perfect good looks. She had big curly hair, was curvy and wasnt secretly liked by all the boys around her. She was normal. Not popular and not unpopular.. just.. there. Which is what made me like her so much, I saw myself in her except .. Im taller and we have different hair colors xD

Recommend it?
I do. I really do.
