Imagine if a celebrity agreed to go on a road trip with his fans. That’s the subject of writer and Glee actor Chris Colfer’s latest YA novel Stranger Than Fanfiction, and EW is excited to exclusively reveal the cover.
The protagonist of Stranger Than Fanfiction is Cash Carter, the young and famous star of the hit show Wiz Kids. When four fans jokingly invite him on a cross-country road trip, Carter surprises them by saying yes. Along the way, the curtain is pulled back on their favorite celebrity as they learn his deep secrets. By the end, they all learn the meaning of true friendship.
Stranger Than Fanfiction marks Colfer’s return to YA after his 2012 novel Struck By Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal. Colfer also starred in and wrote the film adaptation of Struck by Lightning and authored the children’s fantasy series The Land of Stories.
The book comes out March 7 from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
