Don't Cosplay with My Heart Read Online Free - When Edan Kupferman dresses up like her favorite character, Gargantua, she feels tall and powerful. That's important right now, because her family is a mess, her best friend is gone for the summer, her crush is confusing, and Edan's feeling small and not sure which end is up.
When Edan's cosplaying, she can be angry, loud, and not the good girl everyone thinks she is. And when she's at conventions, she feels like she's found her own Team Tomorrow. But when her personal life starts to spiral out of control, Edan has to figure out whether she needs a sidekick, or if she has the strength to be the hero of her own story.

"I'm being weird. Or maybe he's being weird. It was only a weird bubble moment. One that will be forgotten. It probably means nothing at all. The feeling is so nice/horrible/wonderful/terrible/floaty/rotten. My heart is on fire. My heart is exploding. My heart is growing. My heart is shrinking....

I don’t know how this book got published. Actually, I probably do. It’s likely that Castelluci either had connections or knew someone that allowed this garbage to get a contract while someone else’s work was ignored.
But still it flummoxes me that books like...

i have mixed feelings about this book. parts of it were strongly affecting, and the basic messages are important for young nerd girls to hear--especially the central theme what makes someone a 'real' fan /geek/etc. but i can't quite tell who the demographic is here--the prose is too simplistic to...

I know books for younger people tend to be a bit more heavy-handed in their messages on purpose, but this book had no subtlety of message at all. Like the message was being shouted so loud, I lost the characters and the story.
As I was reading, I just felt like the author wanted to tell a story th...

Cecil's work always gets me right in the heart. And I wish Team Tomorrow were real--the team FELT real. And important. And utterly wonderful.

I enjoyed this book, it was a fun read - though not my fav Castellucci book. I could really relate to the awe of experiencing my very first comic book convention just as Edan had. There isn't anything too complex about the the plot but I really appreciate that the book brings up a lot of the nega...

I enjoyed reading this book very much! My English teacher gave it to me knowing I am a big nerd for cosplaying and I was overjoyed. I enjoyed the lessons that Edan learned along the way and how she dealt with each situation. I also liked the wide range of emotions that were present during the sto...

This book was everything. It broke my heart and put it back together again. I needed this when I was a teen, and you know what? I still needed it today. A heart-warming story about friendship, love, loss, and finding your place in the world, including fandoms.

My last new read for 2017 is Don’t Cosplay with My Heart by Cecil Castellucci, and you’ll love it if you’ve ever felt like any fandom universe is sometimes much better than the real world.
1. The cover and title totally hooked me. I love the girl’s pink hair and purple mask – they...
