About the Author

Goldy Moldavsky writes YA fiction from her hometown of Brooklyn. She studied journalism in college, where she got to interview some cool celebrities for her school paper. After a bit she realized it’d be more fun making up stories about celebrities, so that’s what she does in her writing. Some of her influences include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the esteemed works of John Irving, and the Mexican telenovelas she grew up watching with her mother.

This book was really humorous! I found it to be easy to relate to in terms of loving a band, as I myself am fans of boy bands: we can't forget the Jonas Brothers!! The situation that these girls get into is far fetched but I wouldn't put it past some fans to get into crazy situations such as this when they are obsessed with a band. I thought that it was a fun read that went very quickly, as it is quite a short book. I would recommend to anyone who has had a crazy fan experience and would like to laugh about it for a while.

If I could give this book a review without actually rating it, I would, because I genuinely feel one star is still being generous. This was one of the most painful books I've read in a very long time. There are "themes" that don't sit well with me. There's a "fat" main character, and there are so many fat-based jokes that it's overwhelming. For example, this character is so fat, apparently, that she runs into another character and knocks them unconscious. It uses LGBT-based characterizations as a device for plot, and it does so very poorly and rather offensively, in my opinion. The story as a whole makes little to no sense, and I have a difficult time buying a lot of what happens. Characterization is flat, and the silliness of all the Ruperts quickly died when I couldn't remember who was who, and I stopped caring. Overall, this book is juvenile, horrendously unfunny, and in very poor taste.

I have to be honest. I hadn't heard about this book until it was already out. And even then I was torn on whether or not I wanted to read it or not because the cover was pretty plain, but the title was so cool lol But in the end I went ahead and read it after I met Moldavsky at TLA. Four girls are altogether waiting to get into one of the biggest events of their lives; A concert for their favorite boy band. But then things spiral out of control and nothing goes as planned. But then things get a lot darker than what anyone expected. This book was literally all over the place. I laughed and rolled my eyes and everything else. This book was all over the place and full of black humor. It wasn't bad, but it was some pretty weird stuff they talked about. And then to see the chicks in it were like 15/16 and they cussed as much as me! I understand most kids nowadays really do that, but geez lol I did like how entertaining it was though. So much was going with every page turn. (Technically I listened to it on audio but that's beside the point.) I found myself genuinely wanting to know what was really going to come out of it. The only thing I didn't like was the way the characters were portrayed. One of them was described as being "fat." Normally I would praise that for the diversity in body image, but when you describe her as also having a "suitcase full of popcorn" and basically saying no one else would love her so she "settled with the ugliest band member because he was the only one who could possibly love her" it kind of pissed me off. I wasn't really a fan of that. The only reason I didn't DNF right then was because I was already too invested in what had happened. I just chalked it up to the dark humor. But to be honest, it was more mean than funny. Just know, that the way she described Apple's character is not ok. Let's hope Moldavsky doesn't treat any more of her characters that way. There's some things about this I would definitely change, but there were still some funny aspects to the story. In the end it turned out to be entertaining, but overall it wasn't my favorite.

Kill The Boy Band, is interesting and entertaining. It kind of reminded me of the Jawbreakers Scenario. If you’ve never seen this movie, It came out awhile ago. So you have four girls who decide they want to get a room in a hotel, the same hotel that The Ruperts are staying in. The hottest boy band of today. Some of the girls have a plan and well others have no idea what’s going to happen.  Fangirls are different type of creatures. Now if only these types of Fangirls spent the amount of energy they did, stalking boybands, with something else. They would really be going places. Everything in this book, had it’s twists and its turns. Left you wondering at some point, is this real? is this in her head? Whats going on?!  I think that this was a pretty brilliant story. It took you into the craziness that are fans. I’ve witnessed fans doing crazy things and I wonder how most celebs deal with this sort of crazy. I can say I’ve never really gone this far, I probably wouldn’t know what the heck to say to someone I was a super fan of. Needless to say. The author really brought this story to a whole new level. This wasn’t the best book I’ve read but I enjoyed it. It was different, not like something I’ve read before.  It's not my normal genre, but when I was saw the title. I couldn’t help but request it. And I really was taken for a ride. Overall, I give this story a Four. It was pretty intense, funny, and downright crazy....Lissa
