The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl by Barry Lyga

Title: The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl

Author: Barry Lyga

Published: Boston : Houghton Mifflin, 2006

Pages: 311

Summary: A fifteen-year-old "geek" keeps a "List" of the high school jocks and others who torment him, pouring his energy into creating a great graphic novel, but his encounters with Kyra, the Goth Girl, help change his outlook on almost everything, including himself.

Review: I quite enjoyed The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl.

It was a bit slow to start with but it eventually got better and I found it to be quite interesting. While I did enjoy reading it I didn't overly love it. I think that it was more for a male audience but it is still enjoyable for females.

I don't really have too much to say about The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl because it's kind of hard to talk about. The ending was kind of abrupt and anti-climactic but there is a sequel so I'll look into that at some point.

Both Kyra and Donnie were interesting characters. I did find myself wanting to know more about Kyra though.

Overall, if you have a bit of spare time or are looking for something different, The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl is worth a read.
