#6Degrees: Fangirl to... (Guest Post by Susie Day)

The #6Degrees meme continues today! Remember this month's book is Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. 

I'm thrilled to have a favourite author of mine, Susie Day, taking part today. Her Pea's Book series and spin-off The Secrets of Sam and Sam are awesome, and I can't wait for the upcoming The Secrets of Billie Bright!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is both a captivating slow-burn love story, and a generous, thoughtful, analysis of fandom -  as is Love Song by Sophia Bennett.

Love Song by Sophia Bennett is out in April, and features Nina, the one girl in the world who isn’t in love with a 1D-esque boyband and therefore their ideal new assistant. There’s a pivotal scene on a lake island beside a huge mansion - as there is in Catherine Johnson’s The Curious Tale of the Lady Caraboo.

The Curious Tale of the Lady Caraboo is the beautifully-written story of a mixed-race young woman who escapes street poverty in Georgian England by pretending to be an exotic princess. It’s based on a true story - as is Emma Haughton’s Now You See Me.

Now You See Me is a twisty psychological YA thriller, telling the story of the disappearance, and sudden return, of a teenage girl’s best friend - as does Brandy Colbert’s Pointe.

Pointe is set in a Chicago high school and focuses on Theo, a young black ballet dancer who is tugged towards risky behaviour, amidst recovery from an eating disorder and darkness in her past. Ballet is also Veronica’s passion in the classic series opener A Dream of Sadler’s Wells by Lorna Hill.
