Title: Kill The Boy Band
Author: Goldy Moldavsky
From debut author Goldy Moldavsky, the story of four superfan friends whose devotion to their favorite boy band has darkly comical and murderous results.
Okay, so just know from the start that it wasn’t supposed to go like this. All we wanted was to get near The Ruperts, our favorite boy band.
We didn’t mean to kidnap one of the guys. It kind of, sort of happened that way. But now he’s tied up in our hotel room. And the worst part of all, it’s Rupert P. All four members of The Ruperts might have the same first name, but they couldn’t be more different. And Rupert P. is the biggest flop out of the whole group.
We didn’t mean to hold hostage a member of The Ruperts, I swear. At least, I didn’t. We are fans. Okay, superfans who spend all of our free time tweeting about the boys and updating our fan tumblrs. But so what, that’s what you do when you love a group so much it hurts.
How did it get this far? Who knows. I mean midterms are coming up. I really do not have time to go to hell.
I can not believe this is Ms Moldavsky’s debut novel! She did such a great job on this one and I know I will be looking for more books by her!
This book started in one direction, then I thought that it was going into another one and completely to my surprise it went a completely different way! I love books where I can be surprised, that doesn’t happen enough. Not only was the story filled with some twists, the book was fast paced and help my engagement, there were times I had to tell myself that I was only allowed to read one more chapter before doing the various thing I needed to do.
I feel as though a lot of people can relate to this story, almost everyone has that one celebrity that they would fangirl or fanboy over. I know I have and I have seen it happen. This story takes fangirling to an extreme and shows a darker side to it all. Four girls have been brought together by their love of a band named, The Ruperts, they came together to see them in concert and decided to book a room in the same hotel as The Ruperts. This all seems fine until disaster strikes and the girls find themselves in a situation they were expecting. The narrator of this story was completely relatable and in my opinion the most likable one. I also think she had some character growth, in the end she saw who her real friends were and decided to do what she thought was right.
I would highly recommend this book to any girl or boy who has a little fan girl or boy in them!
