Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell


Young Adult

“To really be a nerd, she’d decided, you had to prefer fictional worlds to the real one.”

Cath and Wren are identical twins that were inseparable until they go to college. Despite the fact they go to the same school in Lincoln, Nebraska, Wren doesn’t want to be roommates. They grow further and further apart as Wren goes out drinking all the time with her roommate, Courtney, and Cath stays inside writing fanfiction about her favorite series of books and the character Simon Snow, a magician.

To me, all the excerpts from the Simon Snow books and the excerpts from Cath’s fanfic posts didn’t add to the story. I did like Cath’s slow-moving romance with Levi and her conflicted relationship with her sister and their mother, who left them when they were eight.
