Mia's Life: Fan Takeover! (Paperback)
Based on the life of IRL YouTube sensation Mia Fizz, FAN TAKEOVER is the first in a new series that takes you behind the camera and into the world of a social media star!
Famous YouTuber Mia Fizz has two problems: one, she needs to shake up the content on her channel. Two, her little sister Sienna's birthday is just days away, and she hasn't found the perfect present for a viral birthday reveal. In need of inspo, Mia turns to her beloved fans. It's time for a fan takeover! Each day Mia will have to do one thing her fans choose.
Things get complicated when Mia's followers challenge her to try something that's way outside her comfort zone—and she meets a cute guy in the process. Her fans pose a scary idea: what if Mia talks to him? Embarrassing moments, hilarious vids, and fan encounters ensue … but will any of these wild challenges help Mia figure out what to get Sienna for her birthday?
Mia Fizz is a sixteen-year-old social media star with over a million subscribers on her YouTube channel alone. She rose to fame thanks to her unwavering honesty and openness to talk about teen issues. When not vlogging, she likes to cook, rock climb, and paint.
Hi! My name is Lidia Fernández Abril, a freelance illustrator from Spain. I live in Valladolid (a nice small university city) with my family, including my beautiful cat,Tigerlily. My passion is drawing, creating stories, characters, but also swimming, books and movies! I started my professional career as an inbetweener and clean Up artist, and as Storyboard artist, on different Animation Studios. Presently I'm focused on illustrating children books - recently I´ve illustrated the books series " Supermask", and "Upside down Magic" for the Spanish public -but also I´m working on designing characters and backgrounds for kids games. I love all the process of developing a story, whether is for a children book, design of toys, comic, movie or game, this is why I try to learn as much as possible on every project I approach. But what I enjoy most of my work is that allow me to preserve my inner child and keep always drawing!
Hi, I'm Stephanie Yue, and I ride motorbikes and draw things. I grew up in Atlanta, Beijing, and Hong Kong, and studied illustration in New York City. I got my start working in game design and animation studios while publishing my own mini-comics. I've been working as a freelancer since 2008, taking on everything from comics lettering to sketch cards to coloring to website design. In 2010, I signed on with Barry Goldblatt Literary and I've been illustrating graphic novels, picture books, and chapter books for kids. You may even find my work in issues of SpongeBob Comics! In my other life, I'm an extended overland scooterist, lifelong martial artist, and itinerant blogger. I like riding two-wheeled things, eating and drinking all the things, and climbing things that probably weren't meant for climbing. You can email me at email@example.com. Or you can follow my Vespa travels on my blog, 250Superhero.com, and maybe even buy me a Ko-fi or help support me on Patreon. Please contact Barry Goldblatt Literary for professional inquiries.
