#1 New York Times bestselling author!
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? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

I confess, I am a Fangirl...of Rainbow Rowell
After devoring the Harry Potter and Twilight series, I thought I will never find any books I love as much as those. And then came Mr. John Green and The Fault in Our Stars. And it opened up a whole world of YA lit to me! And who does John Green read? Rainbow Rowell. O>M>G. Every single book she has written is a wonder. Fangirl is no exception. If you like YA and are looking for something new to read, download ALL of Miss Rowell's books!
Great! Fan fic parts where slow
I loved this book! It's was a realistic interpretation of the college experience. Also it never got cheesy or cliché. I do have to say I skipped the Fan Fic excerpts because I wanted to know what happened. Great read, couldn't put it down!
One of the best novels to make you feel less of a freak when you read fanfic
After having been to college a couple years and still in love with a fictional world, this book really helped me see just how okay that was. It's a passion of its own and I loved that I could instantly connect with the main character. I fell in love right away, especially when Cath wrote gay fan fiction. Hilariously every fangirls hobby. If you love a fandom or a sweet love story, you should really read this!
