Believe it or not, I read this before Cait. (Though she read it right after me and fangirled so much she decided I should write the review because she was too emotionally invested.) You can catch Cait’s review on Goodreads.
Thank you Pan Macmillan Australia for the review-copy! FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell hits shelves on April 1st, 2014!
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 room-mate 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 …
When she’s not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don’t really matter in the big scheme of things.
She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.
Mime is doing work experience at the library. This is a simultaneously scary and exciting thing, as she’s never had a job before. She is extremely relieved that all the exams are over for Term 1, and the holidays are coming up. Unfortunately, so is Cross Country. She hopes dearly that she doesn’t get lost. Unlike last time.
