Publisher's Summary

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?

    Story
    "Call me sweetheart."

    FanGirl by Rainbow Rowell was so incredibly written that I actually believed I was a freshman in college, majoring in English. That actually believed I had a ruff and tough roommate that I somehow got along with and liked. That I actually believed I had a boyfriend named Levi and that he was the most wonderful person I've ever met in my entire life. Every time he smiled, I smiled. A ridiculous smile, one that makes my top lip ride up over my gums, made my forehead wrinkle like an absolute nerd, and my eyes scrunch up in the happiest of ways. I've never heard of book that referenced Fanfiction at all, let alone through out the entire book, and as the main characters obsession.
    Even the audio book was so perfectly acted out that I never want to be called anything by a significant-other other than "sweetheart". Maybe sometimes my actual name, but mostly sweetheart. I think I'll always hear Rebecca Lowman's Levi voice saying "sweetheart" into my ear and letting it ring into the air. I will literally never feel the same after listening to this book. I don't think anything written in "modern day" could ever effect me in such a way.

    Story
    "I fell in love"

    I listened to this audio on a solo road trip and it made my drive much more enjoyable. First, the story is awesome. I loved taking a glimpse into this fan fiction world, which I'd surprisingly never known much about. I loved the dynamics between the twin's relationship. I loved the whole first year of college and fitting in part of the story. But what I loved most was the narration. Rebecca Lowman became my favorite narrator solely because of this book. There's just something about her narration that makes me engage and relate.

    My only complaint was the actual fan fiction writing. I get how it added to the story but it dragged on too long for me and I didn't care for the characters - or the storyline, to be honest. I know Rowell went on to write Carry On, about the fictional characters within this story so I must have been part of a smaller group of people who didn't care for it.

    "young adult"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Bought this not realizing it's basically YA fiction. Simplistic. Too cutsie for me.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Young Adults might enjoy it.

    Story
    "Breath of fresh air"

    I just enjoyed this one immensely. I read a rather cliche and somewhat infuriating mystery right before this so I was ready for a book with believable characters and realistic problems. I've been out of college for a while but it resonated with those experiences while still being original and interesting. I also found it to be an interesting exploration of fandom and what fans often think about. In the end, this was a fun adventure that kept me asking: how is this going to end? Good listening!

    "Great book!"

    I loved everything about this story, even though the ending wasn't the best, the rest was. It was super cute and made me giggle a bunch. The narrators were really awesome as well.

    "tweens and teens"

    Didn't really like the narrators male voice, seemed a little slugish when the character is supposed to be someone chirpy. Her voice was perfect for Cath. The story was ok. I did suffer with boredum on two parts. The book is not bad, got it because I heard Carry On and felt like I should listen to this one as well, to be complete in a way.
