Review

“If you or someone else in your life could do with an inclusive, funny, super smart, and sweet introduction to the world of female geeks, look no further.”—The Mary Sue

“Short, thorough, wide-spread, funny, and varied—I wish I'd had this handbook when I first ventured into the fanzones!”—Tamora Pierce, author of The Song of the Lioness series
 
“Everyone could use tips on how to be a better and happier geek from this book. Maggs dishes out the best advice on cosplay, gaming, fan fiction, social media and even how to battle trolls. You'll start reading as student and leave a Jedi Master. May this book be with you always.”—Bonnie Burton, author of The Star Wars Craft Book and You Can Draw: Star Wars
 
“Part analysis and part celebration, this handbook thoroughly explores geekdom and the way women have made it their own. A must-have for anyone interested in fangirl culture."—Beth Revis, author of the New York Times bestselling Across the Universe series
 
“This FANtastic book embraces and encourages the growing number of women who are unleashing their glorious and gorgeous inner geeks.  It celebrates the nerdy girl in all of us. Such fun!”—Amanda Tapping, actress from Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis

“Read it cover to cover, and then make sure you share it with all the young girl geeks you know.”—Brit + Co
 
“A handy handbook for being an empowering and happy girl geek.”—Sweety High

The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy is a great homage to anything and everything fandom, especially for those new to the genre.”—Reading Eagle 

“...this book could be invaluable.”—GeekMom
 
“Through and through, Maggs manages to talk about feminism, fangirling, cons, lingo, and the general idea that you should be yourself, and do that unapologetically, with a great deal of lightheartedness and fun.”—The Frisky
 
“For a woman trying to find her way in fandom, I think this book would be invaluable. But that’s not to say men can’t get something out of it as well.”—FreakSugar
