Hey everyone, today I have a sweet coming of age story to share with you!
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath and Wren are identical twin sisters who have always been close. They did everything together including writing Simon Snow fan fiction together.
However, as the two head off to college Wren is determined to meet new people and have some new experiences of her own.
College is a new chapter in life everyone is nervous to begin but, Cath thought the two would get through it together.
Instead, they each have a dorm-mate who is not their sister. Wren cut her hair, and does not seem to have time for her and Cath is hiding out in her room trying to survive on protein bars.
Until, her dorm-mate Reagan and Reagan's friend force her out of her shell.
When you are at your best everyone is there for you but, when you are experiencing your most challenging moments in life you find out where their loyalty really lies.
In-between learning of Cath and Wren's journey, this book also gives you glimpses of the Simon Snow fan fiction Cath is writing.
I REALLY enjoyed this book! I loved that the author was able to take two different college experiences and show personal growth towards adulthood for both Cath and Wren. I think most college age people could relate to this book in some way or another. I also find it unique that the author was able to give us glimpses into the Simon Snow world throughout the story. My only complaint is that I wish an epilogue had been written.
Best Wishes Always,
