If you were to judge Fangirl by its cover and blurb alone, you may think that it is nothing but a quirky, fun read about an interesting girl addicted to writing fan fiction. But I would strongly encourage you to take a peek inside, because it's really so much more...
What is there not to love about Fangirl? Rainbow Rowell has written an absolutely brilliant coming-of-age tale about fan fiction, family and first love. Cath, Fangirl’s protagonist, is a Simon Snow fanatic. When she isn’t writing fanfiction, she’s thinking about it, and she is perfectly happy that way; until, of course, her world starts changing around her.
This story thrives in its delicate simplicity, and offers power through its unique characters. But let's not forget Rowell's genius writing: clever and unique, fluid and natural, and allowing every situation to become relatable. The dialogue is witty, funny, and effortless.
Fangirl has at least one massive fan: ME! A must-read for all Young Adult book lovers.
