Blog Tour | Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here


Hey guys! Today I’m really excited to be part of the blog tour for Anna Breslaw’s hilarious, nerdy, and super fun debut SCARLETT EPSTEIN HATES IT HERE. I’m going to be sharing Anna’s dream cast for the book, but first, let me tell you a little bit about this debut.

Razorbill // April 19, 2016

Meet Scarlett Epstein, BNF (Big Name Fan) in her online community of fanfiction writers, world-class nobody at Melville High. Her best (read: only) IRL friends are Avery, a painfully shy and annoyingly attractive bookworm, and Ruth, her weed-smoking, possibly insane seventy-three-year-old neighbor.

When Scarlett’s beloved TV show is canceled and her longtime crush, Gideon, is sucked out of her orbit and into the dark and distant world of Populars, Scarlett turns to the fanfic message boards for comfort. This time, though, her subjects aren’t the swoon-worthy stars of her fave series—they’re the real-life kids from her high school. And if they ever find out what Scarlett truly thinks about them, she’ll be thrust into a situation far more dramatic than anything she’s ever seen on TV…
