Iris Thorne wants to blaze her own path. That's easier said than done when you're the granddaughter of M. E. Thorne, famous author of the Elementia series, hailed as the feminist response to J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. And with a major motion picture adaptation of her grandmother's books in the works, Iris can say goodbye to her dream of making her own way in the music industry. So when Iris and her brother get invited to the film set in Ireland, she's pretty sure the trip will be a nightmare. Except Iris can't deny the rugged beauty of the Irish countryside. And brushing shoulders with the hot, young cast isn't awful, especially the infuriatingly charming lead, Eamon O'Brien. Iris even finds the impassioned female director inspiring. But when the filming falls into jeopardy, everything Iris thought she knew about Elementia―and herself―is in question. Will making a film for the big screen help Iris to see the big picture? -- Amazon.com.

What a wonderful foray into the world of fandom from an alternative viewpoint. When Iris Thorne walks onto a movie set for an adaptation of her grandmother's famous books, she's prepared to hate everything about it. Afterall, the rabid fandom has made her family life miserable. It isn't until Iris begins interacting with everyone and dives into the books that she begins to understand the difficulties in her own life. I often feel that fiction should be a way to explore new worlds and learn about yourself in the process. It was nice to see a book that actually addresses the interaction between readers and the text. I was expecting a fluffy teen romance from the cover, what you get inside is so much more.
