Cash Carter is the young, world famous lead actor of the hit television show Wiz Kids. When four fans jokingly invite him on a cross-country road trip, they are shocked that he actually takes them up on it. Chased by paparazzi and hounded by reporters, this unlikely crew takes off on a journey of a lifetime – but along the way they discover that the star they love has deep secrets he's been keeping. What they come to learn about the life of the mysterious person they thought they knew will teach them about the power of empathy and the unbreakable bond of true friendship.
In this touching novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Chris Colfer takes us on a journey full of laughter, tears, and life-changing memories.

Since the characters in Stranger than Fanfiction are die-hard fans of a hit teen sci-fi show called Wiz Kids, we’ve got some recommendations for you based on particular television fandoms.
- If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, read Red Rising by Pierce Brown: Political intrigue, high body count, and status-bending, court-toppling protagonists!
- If you’re a fan of Firefly, read The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: Space action/comedy with roguish captains, strong-willed women, and a ragtag crew of misfits.
- If you’re a fan of Battlestar Galactica, read Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufmann: the end of the world seems to be upon a colony of space-dwelling humans, some of whom escape on a select fleet.
- If you’re a fan of Penny Dreadful, read the Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab: atmospheric, bloody, and full of magic, this series, like the show, is set in period London (four of them!).
- If you’re a fan of Boardwalk Empire, read The Diviners by Libba Bray: set in the ’20s, follows the early days of speakeasies, Jazz, and fascination with gangsters and the occult.
