Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl

Rainbow Rowell is quickly becoming one of my "read anything by her" authors. Fangirl tells the story of a college freshman away from home for the first time. Cath is attending the same college as her twin sister, but Wren has decided it would be better for both of them if they don't room together and if they try to make new friends. Cath is not too keen on this idea and just continues doing what she's always done--writing Simon Snow fan fiction and ignoring the real world. Her plan goes awry when the real world keeps interrupting and demanding she pay attention.

I loved this book: Cath's relationship with her roommate; her budding friendship with her roommate's quasi-boyfriend; her writing partnership with a fellow student; her conflicted relationship with her twin sister. Interspersed throughout the book is Cath's fan fiction story Carry On. The book is written much like I imagine Cath's mind is set up-- constantly traveling between the Simon Snow universe and the real world.

Fans of Rowell will not be disappointed.
