Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Worrywart Cath has always been a huge fan of the Simon Snow series (which is very Harry Potter-like). She and her twin sister, Wren, used to read it obessively to cope with their mom leaving their family. Now, as a freshman in college, Cath is the ultimate fangirl, writing fan-fiction and running a Simon Snow website. But Wren has outgrown the series, so when Wren informs Cath that she does not want to room with her, Cath is stuck with moody roommate Reagan, whose super flirtatious boyfriend is always hanging around their dorm room. And between her obsession with Simon Snow and her worrisome tendencies, her college career could be ruined before it’s even really started.
This is my favorite book by Rainbow Rowell. It’s sweet, charming, and relatable, since I myself tend to have “fangirl” tendencies. It’s a great summer read!
I give it a B+.
