Cash Carter, the young, world-famous lead actor of the hit television show Wiz Kids, is a favorite of the tabloids and paparazzi, who take notice of his every move. When four fans jokingly invite him on a cross-country road trip, they are shocked when he actually accepts their invitation. Getting a taste of the spotlight, this unlikely crew takes off on a journey of narrow escapes from photographers, not-so-glamorous mishaps, and surprise turns. But along the way they discover that the star they love isn't the picture-perfect person they've seen on TV. Cash Carter has secrets--big ones that no one else knows about--and they just might tear his image apart. A novel about the truth behind power, fame, and the meaning of friendship, on a hilarious, life-changing adventure across the States-- adapted from book jacket.

Oh my gosh-wow. This book... Is INCREDIBLE. It is positively beautiful the way that Chris Colfer illustrated all the different problems some teens can have, and ways that you can make those problems better. I quote this book everyday! Sure, the "swearing" was a wee bit overboard, BUT, it related to the topic (and was frankly hilarious). I'm thirteen, and usually I read EXCLUSIVELY fiction, but I love Mr. Colfer's other books and thought I'd give this one a go. I was not disappointed! I hope you all read this book and LOVE it as much as I did!
Have a great day :)

I read this book because Chris Colfer is one of my favourite authors after reading some of his other books (Land of Stories series). When I started to read this book, I was rather disappointed. The whole plot was unbelievable. I could handle the language and a few bits of inappropriate behaviour, but the story was so unrealistic and fake. It was about how there were four teens and each kid had a problem. Then this famous star from their favourite T.V show went on a road trip with them because one of the kids sent him a letter containing his actual name. The plot is terrible, to be honest. I believe the point of a story is to make it relatable to the audience. This novel was nothing like that. How are people that are transgender, gay, unhappy with a school, and someone who is in love with their best friend going to relate to the audience? I understand that this book celebrates diversity and uniqueness, but it seems fake that all of them have these problems. Also, I believe that someone like Chris Colfer, an inspiration to kids, might influence kids to do crazy things like these. I know that it isn't his fault if he wrote this book before the Land of Stories series, but just like me, kids might find this book and see the parts about weed and sex. Like in all honesty, I don't see how someone reads this stuff and goes like "Chris Colfer is the best person on earth!" I bet there are people like me who read this and their respect for him goes down. He's basically promoting the use of drugs in children. However, as much as I don't agree with the book, it certainly left a mark in my brain. It was well-written and some people will agree with the actions of the book. Stranger Than Fanfiction did make sense in the end but had questionable themes. This book is recommended for 13 and up. I am not an actual critic though, so this is my opinion.
