Rainbow Rowell has done it again, she has wrote another amazing book. I don’t know why it took me this long to read it. The writing is fantastic, the dialog is perfect and the characters are phenomenal. Each character has such great personalities. They are all great, individual people and Rainbow definitely knows how to write them. It’s funny, quirky, and such a good read. Fangirl is written in third person but Rainbow Rowell’s writing is so good that it makes it feel like it is written in first person in Cath’s perspective.

Personally, I have never really read fanfiction. I always felt like I was ruining the story that was in my head. I didn’t want to read other peoples versions of a story that was already written. Reading Fangirl actually makes me want to look into the fanfiction world and see what I have been missing.

I totally recommend this book to everyone. It is such a good book I am so glad that I got to read it.

Cath is a Simon Snow fan. - Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…

But for Cath, being a fan is her life - and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
