Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here by Anna BreslawMeet Scarlett Epstein, BNF (Big Name Fan) in her online community of fanfiction writers, world-class nobody at Melville High. Her best (read: only) IRL friends are Avery, a painfully shy and annoyingly attractive bookworm, and Ruth, her weed-smoking, possibly insane seventy-three-year-old neighbor.
When Scarlett’s beloved TV show is canceled and her longtime crush, Gideon, is sucked out of her orbit and into the dark and distant world of Populars, Scarlett turns to the fanfic message boards for comfort. This time, though, her subjects aren’t the swoon-worthy stars of her fave series—they’re the real-life kids from her high school. And if they ever find out what Scarlett truly thinks about them, she’ll be thrust into a situation far more dramatic than anything she’s ever seen on TV…
Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here
Anna Breslaw makes her YA fiction debut later this year with Scarlett Epstein Hates it Here , which follows Scarlett Epstein, a snarky, funny teenager, famous online for her fan fiction, and totally invisible at her high school. But when her favorite TV show and muse is canceled, she returns to writing fiction — but instead of TV characters, her subjects are her fellow high school students. Scarlett Epstein Hates it Here hits shelves April 19 — but EW is thrilled to reveal an exclusive sneak peek at the prologue and first four chapters, below:. While I have no control over the decision, I could not be more proud of the extraordinary talent both in front of and behind the cameras who have collectively made this show what it is. But look.
Thank you! She handles it by affecting an often hilarious, sarcastic distance, turning her hand-me-downs into an aesthetic choice, and liberally peppering her conversation with both popular and obscure cultural references. Though her life is full of good people—her mother, her best friend, Avery, her delightfully vinegary neighbor Ruth—who hold up loving mirrors to her most judgmental, emotionally distancing impulses, Scarlett stubbornly sees herself as an underachieving loner with a uniquely sophisticated read on the world.
