Title: Mockingston Faire

Author: Samuel Yaw Jian Fong

Summary: 

Three friends — Victoria Hughes, Jack Zhang, and Ludvig Gerald — attend Mockingston Faire, an annual convention where fans meet their friends and favourite characters, buy and sell art, play games, and have a good time. Victoria wants to see Gunfighter III, her anticipated game, and reconcile with Ludvig over what she did last year; Jack wants to get as many pictures of his dearest characters and personalities; and Ludvig just wants to keep away from annoying fans and events who constantly forced him to become an amateur actor.

But the Faire itself has its own challenges. Everywhere they go, they seem to be unable to evade the malcontents of pop culture. From violent brawls between bitter fandoms, to nuisances who hound their every step, the whole Faire seems to descend into chaos.

Can these three make it through this dysfunctional festival with their friends in one piece? Or will they succumb to the surrounding rage, losing their sanity and reputation in the process?

Mockingston Faire, Samuel Yaw Jian Fong

Book Review on Mockingston Faire:

This novel is filled with heartfelt comedy about three young friends that find themselves in sticky and humorous situations. Victoria Hughes, Jack Zhang, and Ludvig Gerald attend the Mockingston Faire an annual convention where fans have the ability to meet their friends and favorite characters. I found this novel to be funny; laughing throughout many points of the story between the characters and the situations they got into during the faire. As the faire goes descends into chaos these three try their hardest to make it through the chaos and try to keep their sanity.

The writing flowed nicely! It’s clear that the author made sure to double even triple check their written work before publishing. You’ll absolutely fall in love with the characters and the wacky shenanigans they get up to during the faire. From Victoria’s constant selfies to Ludvig’s battles bringing out a chainsaw from a sheath you’ll absolutely love the way these characters interact with one another and other characters in the story. In this humorous tale full of twists and turns, you’ll want to keep turning the page until the very end.
