Publisher's Summary

Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they're off to university, and Wren's decided she doesn't want to be one half of a pair any more - she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It's not so easy for Cath. She's horribly shy and has always buried herself in the fan fiction she writes, where she always knows exactly what to say and can write a romance far more intense than anything she's experienced in real life.

Without Wren, Cath is completely on her own and totally outside 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.

Now Cath has to decide whether she's ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she's realizing that there's more to learn about love than she ever thought possible.

A love story about opening your heart by Rainbow Rowell, the New York Times best-selling author of Eleanor & Park.

Fangirl now comes with special bonus material: the first chapter from Rainbow's irresistible novel Carry On.

Loved Levi

Great story. Fell in love with the character Levi. Wasn't much of a fan of the story within a story but loved the main story line so it was bearable.

As amazing as I knew it was going to be.

Ever since I read Fangirl it's been one of my all time favourite books. Living in the UK we usually get stuff behind the rest of the world but when I finally saw it was available I screamed like the fangirl I am I'm 27 and happy to call myself a fangirl. This book was performed amazingly I love how it switched from Cath to the Simon Snow scenes absolutely fantastic I love this book even more thank you Rainbow Rowell for all your amazing stories. xx

Very moreish

The more I listened, the more I wanted to know. I've stayed up for about a weeks listening to this book until 1am ! I wish it didn't end the way it did as I really wanted to hear what happened at the end!

I listened twice

This story is wonderful escapism, with all the layers of fiction, fan fiction and the story of Cath's days at college. I finished it, had the usual few days of music gap, then started it again. I didn't have any new titles I wanted to hear as much as I wanted to hear this again. It's not challenging, it's a comforting listen and I love it.

Fantastic

I'd say the perfect age to read this is 18, it's surprisingly a mature and deep book. Everyone will love this book 💕

All I can say....

All I can say is 'Wow'. How can something be so amazing? The performance captured the characters perfectly and the story itself is amazing.
I keep getting lost in it when on my way to college.
Just sitting in my bus seat, eyes closed and bag held tight I my chest, volume on full power: I can see the characters playing around in front of me.
Indeed some weird looks from all the heartfelt moments and sometimes even the tears this has bought to me.
If anyone wants to get lost in a book or even wants to be found in a way, this is for you....

A Perfect Feel Good Book

I've been three books deep into a fantasy series and needed a break to regroup. Fangirl was a good feel good book with good believable characters and story line. If your looking for something light hearted that touches on some deeper life issues, try this book.
