Kill The Boy Band

Reviewed by:

Obsessed with the boy band The Ruperts four fangirls decided to rent a room in the hotel that the boys are staying at in the hopes of meeting them; heck just seeing the band would make the girls’ day. The girls check into the hotel and things seem to be going well until Apple has a chance meeting with her favorite Rupert and instead of acting cool she lets her fangirl craziness take over and tackles Rupert Pierpont knocking him out cold.  With Rupert P. tied up in the girls hotel room (because of course Apple wasn’t going to leave him in the hall) misunderstandings, mayhem, and murder ensue. The story is told in first person by a narrator that never reveals her real name but instead steals names from John Hughes movies making her seem even more unreliable than she already is.  Kill The Boy Band takes a look at the power of social media and fandoms in today’s society.  Moldavsky’s debut novel is a darkly humorous tale of the lengths some fans will go to make their fantasies, which aren’t always in the celebrity’s best interest, come true.  Highly recommended to anyone that has ever experience the power of fandom obsession.
