A coming-of-age tale of family, first love, and fan fiction from the talentedauthor of "Eleanor & Park."
From the Publisher:
In Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, 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 the 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 professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome 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? Open her heart to someone?|Or will she just go on living inside somebody else?s fiction?
Cath Avery's experience of the first year of college is like being repeatedly thrown into an icy pond in Rainbow Rowell's tender, funny, and down-to-earth young adult novel. When her twin, Wren, declares that they aren't going to room together, Cath is horrified. She feels no need for new friends and new experiences, after all, they've happily shared a room for 18 years and both love Simon Snow, a Harry Potter-like fictional character. Cath would be happy to stay in, writing fan fiction and avoiding everyone. Contending with a disdainful roommate, a professor who considers fan fiction plagiarism, and an overwhelming new life on campus, Cath struggles to find a way to survive. Rowell is also the author of ELEANOR & PARK.


"[A] funny and tender coming-of-age story that's also the story of a writer finding her voice...Rowell makes all of Cath's relationships...touching and utterly real." 07/15/2013

"Absolutely captivating." 07/15/2013
