YA Fugvel

I just found out some super exciting news: Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, the fabulous women behind Go Fug Yourself, have written a YA novel. The ladies have managed to keep their site consistently funny, writing from the point of view of voices as distinct as Jennifer Lopez and that guy behind J. Lo in the picture who can’t believe what she is wearing, and often letting their internal monologues spill onto the page to hilarious effect.

Unfortunately, the book doesn’t come out until summer, but here is a synopsis, written by Heather and Jessica themselves, to get you as excited as I am:

The closest sixteen-year old Molly Dix has gotten to the red carpet is watching it on E!; gorgeous, spoiled Brooke Berlin was practically born on one in Beverly Hills. Their worlds couldn’t be farther apart, until Molly discovers the long-kept secret that sends her spinning into Brooke’s orbit: They share a father, Brick Berlin, world-famous movie star and tabloid regular. Intrigued (and a little bit terrified) by her Hollywood lineage, Molly dives into the deep end of celebrity life by moving to Southern California — where Brooke is waiting, armed with a smothering dose of ‘sisterly love’… and a plan.

Since Heather and Jessica have made a career of mocking celebrity outfits, I’m hoping that the fashion in this book will be even more exciting than that of the sisters Wakefield. And just look at the gorgeous cover! Mmmmmmm. Sparkly.
