"Fame is changing. Because of the revolutions of social media, fame isn't just for famous people anymore.We need to be having intelligent, thoughtful, deep discussions about it, and Semi-Famous is exactly that. Except, also it is fun and irreverent and laugh-out-loud funny. This is the class on fame that everyone should be taking in our bizarre new world."

--Hank Green, #1 New York Times bestselling author and internet video person

"I don't know how I can warn anyone about the spotlight when I'm so busy chasing it--but Josh Sundquist does it perfectly."

* "Insightful and humorous... Sundquist's own awkward pursuit of fame is sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, and he offers wise and down-to-earth advice for those who come in already convinced that fame alone is a worthy goal. Highly recommended."--Booklist, starred review
"A cleverly funny memoir-slash-exposé....this is a fun and thoughtful work suitable for ­every young person living in our tech-driven world."--SLJ
