Praise For…


"Lundin... effortlessly speaks the language of conventions, fandom, and social media... Escapist fun. Skillfully interwoven are explorations of media representation and the line between fan and creator... This ship does more than just sail--it soars."—Kirkus reviews

"This debut charmingly explores fan culture, internalized perspectives, and the importance of representation."—Booklist

"Can I ship myself with this book? Britta Lundin captures the heightened emotions of both teenagerhood and fandom with two pitch-perfect characters approaching the world of ships, slash, conventions, and cosplay from opposite sides of a cult TV show, finding a way to meet each other in the middle, and getting to know themselves better along the way. SHIP IT catapulted me back to my own years of being an obsessive teenager discovering pieces of herself in the fanfiction she read in secret on dial up internet. I love this book so much I literally can't even."—Mackenzi Lee, New York Times bestselling author of The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

"Much like its indefatigable fangirl heroine, SHIP IT is by turns prickly and charming, tender, vulnerable and brave. As smartly savvy as it is deeply heartfelt: this is the book that fandom has been waiting for, and the lived-in, fleshed-out portrait it deserves."—Zan Romanoff, author of Grace and the Fever

"Ship It punches you right in the feels. Britta Lundin gives us a story about the OTPs we want--and the ones we need. I ship it. #SmokeHeartForever."—Ashley Poston, author of Geekerella

"I can't stop smiling about this book--a winsome, emotionally rich joyride through the parallel worlds of fame and fandom and self-discovery. This is the perfect story for our current moment, as vibrant and funny as it is thoughtful and political, and packed so full of heart that it made mine skip a few beats. SHIP IT is utterly irresistible."—Riley Redgate, author of Noteworthy

"A love letter to fandom and to anyone who wished the world could be a gayer place. I stan for Britta Lundin!"—Maggie Thrash, author of Honor Girl
