Fangirls everywhere can relate to that insatiable need to meet your favorite author or artist, the anxiety of not knowing if you’ll make it to the next panel, or the thrill of being among fellow fans to celebrate one fandom. Add in a little romantic tension between best friends and you’ve got Sarvenaz Tash’s The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love!

On this episode, Victoria and Kristen introduce listeners to the novel and to Sarvenaz herself! Sarvenaz is a children’s and YA author whose third novel (The Geek’s Guide) was named an Amazon Best Book of the Year and a YALSA Top Ten Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers. We chat with Sarvenaz about her inspiration for the book, what it feels like to be fangirled AT, and her own experiences at New York Comic Con. Sarvenaz also gives us the scoop on her new short story that’s set to debut in the upcoming anthology The Radical Element: 12 Stories of Daredevils, Debutantes, and Other Dauntless Girls, coming out in March 2018!
