I have to admit that what most attracted me to this book, it was not a catchy title or an interesting description of encouraging every fangirl to check how our world was presented. Only it was this lovely mint cover. Even in the depths of the internet even before the novel was translated into our language, it caught my attention, and when I saw it with my own eyes, I could no longer look away (still can not). It is minimalist. Mint on the background is the only pink word „Fangirl” and two small drawing figures. Good enough for me. It is one of the most beautiful book covers I’ve ever seen.
„Fangirl” storyteller Cath, actually Cather, who along with her twin sister begins her first semester in college. Sisters although so similar physically very different personality. Wren wants to party and meet new people, and Cath prefer to spend time in the room writing fanfics about the teenage wizard Simon.
The book begins at the moment when it Cath introduced to his dorm room, which for the first time in my life will not be shared with Wren. Instead her sister roommate is Reagan, which is completely different than Cather. Girl burns, often somewhere out and meets with a lot of guys. One of them is eternally smiling Levi, who spends a lot of time in the room girls.
I must admit that very, very liked this book. Last I did not have too much luck with what I read. Each novel that I read was predictable and I guessed almost everything. In the end, it just made me bored and slowly stopped to read the amount of books as I used to. „Fangirl” re-awakened in me the love for reading. With a smile on his face I read about the fate of the main character. Although I have to admit that at some point I was also in tears. I liked everyone. Cath, who reminded me sometimes, always positive Levi (oh … how I’d love to have someone like that in my life!), And even malicious Reagan, the professor of creative writing (but for the fact that it considers fanfics for plagiarism is me minus. Well, how can so!), even Wren, who almost to the very end made me very nervous.
I recommend the book to anyone and especially every fangirl, it is fun to read about one of us.

Ultraxenopia by M.A.Phipps
Don’t stand out. Blend in. Remain invisible. Those are the rules I lived by—the rules I thought would keep me alive.
I was wrong.

With the constant threat of death hanging over her like a shadow, she forces herself to live by a strict set of rules, all in the hope of ensuring she is never noticed. However, on her twenty-first birthday, as she prepares to take the placement exam that will determine her future within society, she begins to show symptoms of a rare and debilitating illness—ultimately attracting the attention of the State. Taken into the custody of the feared research facility known as the DSD, her worst nightmare becomes reality.
Ripped away from the life she knew, Wynter is forced to become the test subject of the mysterious Dr. Richter. Through him, she learns the true and terrifying nature of her condition: a disease called Ultraxenopia.

This new adult dystopian story captured my imagination from the outset and I couldn’t get enough of Wynter Reeves and her harrowing story. I’m so glad I decided to read it; I simply couldn’t put it down!
The character development was strong and I believed in the relationships. Especially, Wynter’s reactions to both captivity by the State and the Phoenix community. On the day of Wynter Reeves has her 21 birthday she has to take a placement test, she has been trying to blend in and stay invisible but the day of the test everything changes. She becomes very visible and a target for of the DSD where she after getting the diagnose Ultraxenopia is used as a lab rat. Wynter begins having visions of the future. A future where no one survives. How does Wynter get away from the state? How does she find a group of survivors that are living off the grid? After all, what Wynter experienced what survived and saw, she decides to run away from the place where she was safe. From the place where she could experience love. The only reason to save the love of people who accepted it to protect yourself and how your man. All because there a cure? Wynter did not want to be the one who you can become. She does not want anyone’s death, nor wants to be a weapon. This is all that is who she is. Wynter wants to prevent what she saw. She decides to save all to herself.
