Chris Colfer's letter to fans on the release of "Stranger Than Fanfiction"
I hope you enjoy my latest YA novel, Stranger Than Fanfiction. It features a group of friends who are faced with big life choices and powerful secrets—each one distinct in his or her own way, much like the amazing fans I’ve met in my travels. I don’t think it will shock anyone when I confess that my own “coming of age” years were different than most American teenagers. Being plucked from a conservative small town and thrust into the spotlight of a hit television show introduced me to unique challenges, privileges, and insights. Those experiences have given me a great opportunity to bring an unusual perspective to YA fiction—and I couldn’t be more grateful for the chance!
