Zoe Rosenthal Is Not Lawful Good

We rated this book:


Zoe has her life all mapped out with Simon. The only problem is that Simon strongly ridicules Bleeders, a series about a gory bleeding virus that his sister adores. Zoe secretly loves the series too, and she is so excited for the new season to start that she books herself a flight to Atlanta to see a midnight premiere at the comic con. When she misses her return flight, her new best friends help her maintain the charade while also making plans for the next con. Zoe’s lies get bigger and bolder in order to continue attending the cons, but her plans never stray, even as her parents, Simon’s sister, and Simon’s mother learn of her subterfuge. Is there a way to explain her love of the show to Simon?

The various comic cons, the newest playground in young adult fiction, provide a backdrop for diverse characters and hilarious situations as Zoe and her friends try to build the following for their favorite show. Her obsession with lists and her future plans evolve as she becomes more immersed in the comic con culture. Readers will love Zoe’s journey to discover that who you love shouldn’t determine what you love. Excellent fun!
