"There are two insults which no human being will endure: the assertion that he hasn't a sense of humor, and the doubly impertinent assertion that he has never known trouble."

Unexpected strength

Fangirl

Title: Fangirl
By: Rainbow Rowell

Cath would rather be anywhere else except college, especially since her twin sister Wren doesn’t want to them to be roommates. The one place she feels safe is in the world of Simon Snow, where she writes fan fiction on Internet forums. Even so, Cath doesn’t know if she can handle college without Wren leading the way. How can she deal with her new roommate Reagan, who is more outspoken, and whose boyfriend is always coming around? Or the fellow student that who may or may not be just a writing partner? And then there’s Cath’s dad, who hasn’t been alone since her mother left when she was eight. As her freshman year progresses, Cath learns more about herself, and that maybe there’s more to life than Simon Snow. And maybe she doesn’t need Wren as much as she first thought.

Fangirl is a journey of self-discovery, of learning that there are more unexpected consequences in real life than there are in books, and that the least likely of people can turn out to be your greatest friends. You won’t be able to put this book down.

Fangirl is a fantastic coming-of-age story. The characters are vibrant with life and the story is absolutely unique. Rainbow Rowell has converted me to the wonderful world of fanfiction, and I'm never looking back! 4.5 out of 5 stars in my book.
