The Pros of Cons by Alison Cherry
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
If you know nothing about cons or fandoms or how different people mixing at a convention space can make for interesting (and awkward) meetings, this book will enlighten you. That a group of taxidermists, a percussion competition, a fan convention and a "tinies" beauty pageant could all co-exist in the same space was something that I wouldn't have believed until I started going to conferences and yes, in fact, they do sometimes co-exist.
Beyond that, however, the book is predictable. That doesn't make it bad, just that there was nothing particularly new about any of the characters and their lives, dilemmas and resolutions. Most readers won't mind, but I was hoping for something different.
