I'm not sure how I feel about the Simon Snow chapters, they read too much like off-brand Harry Potter. However, I enjoyed the book and Cath's obsession with "the world of Mages." Cath's neuroses and general "greenness" I found to be wildly annoying at times, but the general adorableness of the story a la Rowell more than made up for any lingering irritation. Reagan is by far my favorite character because she is just completely f*cking awesome. ( )

This book relates to me differently every time I read it! One of my favorites!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Read #6
My favorite aspect of this book is the voice/style Rowell gives Cath. The sarcastic, yet sincere worldview is a key part of how Cath chooses to make connections and overcome fears. Because of this consistent character, the witty banter and dialogue shine through. When I'm rereading this and I come across one of my favorite lines, I can't help but smile.

I would recommend this book to readers who love reading about readers/writers. This book fits very well in the Young Adult category, but it would be easiest to relate to if you are a college student.

Recently, I realized that if I keep telling people this is my favorite book, I should probably have my own copy. I'm super grateful I have access to libraries where they don't care if I borrow it over and over again, but I've finally decided that it is worth purchasing. I'm also thrilled for the Manga, [b:Fangirl, Vol. 1: The Manga|52854406|Fangirl, Vol. 1 The Manga|Rainbow Rowell|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1585676692l/52854406._SX50_.jpg|79043477], which I've put on my Christmas list with high hopes.

I've heard good things about Raibow Rowell and I'm happy to say they were not exaggerated. I liked that the book wasn't just about a romance, although that was a huge part of it. But it was also about growing up. And I loved that the main character was unapologetically good at what she does and also a real geek (I've read book where they describe a character as a geek, but the character is not really written as one...). Nice experience and a great holiday read! ( )

Fangirl tells the story of twin sisters Cath and Wren from the start of their freshman year in college. Even though they are going to attend the same school, Wren unexpectedly decides not to room with Cath, throwing her sister for a loop. Wren, it seems, wants to break out and make a life of her own without her sister.

Wren is the outgoing one, easily fitting in at college and making new friends. Cath is painfully introverted, crippled with social anxiety that, among other things, drives her to eat protein bars in her room instead of going to the cafeteria because there are too many people and too many social pitfalls waiting for her there. Cath is too much in her own head, worrying about potential disasters and clinging to her only comfort zone - the world of Simon Snow fandom.

Cath, it seems, spends most of her free time writing Simon Snow fan fiction, but she's not just any fan writer. In fact, she's one of the most popular writers in the entire fandom, and she's best known for her slash depicting a romantic relationship between Snow and his roommate/nemesis, Baz. Cath and Wren started out writing together, but as they got older, Wren stopped collaborating with her sister even as Cath's star rose in the fan writer community. As the book opens, Cath is deep in the middle of writing her own alternate version of the upcoming eighth and final Simon Snow book.

Cath loves writing about Simon and Baz, loves writing so much that she signs up for a fiction writing class normally reserved for upperclassmen. Anyone who has ever attended a college fiction course can guess what kind of disaster is heading Cath's way, so deep is she embedded in the world of fan fiction. That said, Fangirl is a thoroughly even-handed depiction of the world of fan fiction; Cath clearly uses her fan writing as an escape from the real world, but it's also clear that her prolificacy and storytelling skills only improve thanks to her constant remixing of the Simon Snow universe. Fangirl doesn't condemn fan fiction, but does point to it as a stepping stone towards learning how to tell your own stories.

At its heart, though, Fangirl is a character study of a girl who I'm sure many socially awkward readers can recognize and identify with. As we slowly learn more about Cath's relationship with her family members - her bipolar dad, her absentee mother, and her suddenly distant twin - she becomes a fuller and even more powerful character. At first her fears seemed outrageous even as I could imagine myself inside the same kind of toxic mindset; once I came to understand where Cath was coming from, however, the book packed a palpable emotional punch. Her coming of age over the course of her freshman year is both realistic and stirring.

I also loved Fangirl's depiction of Cath's burgeoning romantic relationship. The love scenes are tentative and believable, and felt so true to life. Cath's growth as a person depends on her learning to open up and trust others after experiencing so much heartbreak at a young age. Where so many young adult novels seem to include romance by default, Fangirl makes the romantic storyline crucial to Cath's development, and the difference is incredibly refreshing.

The highest compliment I can pay this book is that once I sat down and truly devoted myself to reading it, I didn't stop until I had thoroughly blown past my bedtime by several hours. My sleep schedule is still recovering, but I don't regret a minute. Rowell is definitely an author to watch. ( )
