The third novel from the phenomenally talented Alice Oseman - one of the most talked about YA writers in recent years. Being a fan isn't always about the thing you're a fan of. Being a fan has made me better friends online than I've ever encountered in real life. People sneer, bu...t they don't understand the half of it. When you find something you love, something that gives you hope, light, joy, friendship, community - you cling onto it. For Angel Ahmadi, life is only about one thing: The Ark - a pop-rock trio of teenage boys who are currently taking the world by storm. Being part of The Ark's fandom has given her everything - her friendships, her dreams, her place in the world. Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark too. He's their frontman - and playing in a band is all he's ever dreamed of doing. It's just a shame that recently everything in his life seems to have turned into a bit of a nightmare. Because that's the problem with dreaming - eventually, inevitably, real life arrives with a wake-up call. And when Angel and Jimmy are unexpectedly thrust together, they will discover just how strange and surprising facing up to reality can be. A funny, wise and heartbreakingly true coming-of-age novel, The Ark is a stunning reflection of modern teenage life, and the power of believing in something - especially yourself.
