This was such a fun and sweet quick read!

Kay is a fanfic writer heading to Greatcon for the weekend and to meet up with some fandom friends.

Wanting to test out some things outside her restrictive hometown and life.

“-Try out they/them pronouns to see how it feels
-Wear more masculine-presenting cosplay
-Kiss a girl for the first time”

Teagan is at the same hotel competing in the Miss Cosmic Teen USA pageant as Miss Virginia. She wants to win to use the scholarship to pay for college.

She loves Greatcon but hides that whole side of her along with her being a lesbian. Afraid of what the other contestants and the judges would think.

When Teagan sneaks off to check out Greatcon she bumps into Kay and they definitely feel a spark. Strangely Miss North Carolina who is Teagan’s biggest competition is also Kay’s school bully so they are constantly evading her.

This was so sweet and for Kay it was a self discovery as she was starting to find out her preferences.

I loved all the fanfic conference fun and running around trying not to get caught by curfew and the floor mom’s.

❓What fandom or fanfic are you obsessed with or were you?
I am into a lot of fantasy book fandoms but I haven’t been to a con yet. I need to read fanfic.

Thank you wednesdaybooks and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

Synopsis:

One small fandom convention. One teen beauty pageant.
One meet cute waiting to happen.

Up and coming fanfic author Kaylee Beaumont is internally screaming at the chance to finally meet her fandom friends in real life and spend a weekend at GreatCon. She also has a side quest for the weekend:

Try out they/them pronouns to see how it feels
Wear more masculine-presenting cosplay
Kiss a girl for the first time

It’s… a lot, and Kay mostly wants to lie face down on the hotel floor. Especially when her hometown bully, Miss North Carolina, shows up in the very same hotel. But there’s this con-sponsored publishing contest, and the chance to meet her fandom idols… and then, there’s Teagan.

Pageant queen Teagan Miller (Miss Virginia) has her eye on the much-needed prize: the $25,000 scholarship awarded to the winner of the Miss Cosmic Teen USA pageant. She also has secrets:

She loves the dresses but hates the tiaras
She’s a giant nerd for everything GreatCon
She’s gay af

If Teagan can just keep herself wrapped up tight for one more weekend, she can claim the scholarship and go off to college out and proud. If she’s caught, she could lose everything she’s worked for. If her rival, Miss North Carolina, has anything to do with it, that’s exactly how it’ll go down.

When Teagan and Kay bump into one another the first night, sparks fly. Their connection is intense—as is their shared enemy. If they’re spotted, the safe space of the con will be shattered, and all their secrets will follow them home. The risks are great… but could the reward of embracing their true selves be worth it?
