Story (from Amazon)

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? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

My Thoughts
I got this book as a gift due the title. I am a fangirl of many things and I dont think my friend who gave it to me read what this book was about. I have no previous knowledg about Simon Snow, I know I feel like I am old, but that didnt do anything. I still read and enjoyed the book and I got really interesting in Simon Snow and have though about reading the books now after reading this one.

The bonus content is parts of Simon Snow and it helped me as a reader to understand the book better.Rowell is a very good author who makes this book funny and still have a lot of thoughts in it. The characters feels real, with real life and real problems.The reality aspect is good and makes the book very nice. its another perspective of a series of books about magic.

Maybe this book isnt for me as an adult but still, you can read and enjoy the book just as I did. If you love Simon Snow, this is absolutly something for you to read and for young adults who love Simon Snow it is a perfect book too. I can recooment this book even if it i easy read for us adults.
