Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Gena and Finn would have never met but for their mutual love for the popular show Up Below. Regardless of their differences--Gena is a recent high school graduate whose social life largely takes place online, while Finn is in her early twenties, job hunting and contemplating marriage with her longtime boyfriend--the two girls realize that the bond between them transcends fanfiction. When disaster strikes and Gena's world turns upside down, only Finn can save her, and that, too, comes with a price. Told through emails, text messages, journal entries, and blog posts, Gena/Finn is a story of friendship and love in the digital age.

"Told through emails, text messages, journal entries, and blog posts, two fans of a popular TV show become friends online, but soon realize the bond between them is more than fan fiction in this story of friendship and love through social media in the digital age"-- Provided by publisher.

Horn Book Review

Gena, eighteen, and Finn, twenty-two, meet in a television show's online fandom and complicate each other's real lives. Told through texts and online communication, the story calls for some suspension of disbelief, but it explores and legitimizes relationships that are more recognizable to today's teens than to older generations. A traumatic event toward book's end creates a significant shift in tone. (c) Copyright 2016. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
