Publisher Description

Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they're off to university and Wren's decided she doesn't want to be one half of a pair any more - she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It's not so easy for Cath. She's horribly shy and has always buried herself in the fan fiction she writes, where she always knows exactly what to say and can write a romance far more intense than anything she's experienced in real life.

Without Wren Cath is completely on her own and totally outside her comfort zone. She's got a surly room-mate 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.

Now Cath has to decide whether she's ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she's realizing that there's more to learn about love than she ever thought possible . . .

Highly Recommended

Charming and unique with characters you will come to love, a delightful coming of age story that has just enough angst and suspense without being too depressing. Fan girls need not fear that they will be slighted or undermined, Rainbow Rowell treats fandom with respect while still challenging her character to broaden her horizons and confront her intimacy issues.


Beautifully written

Fantastic! One of the best books I've read in a long time. Such an original concept and the characters were so engaging and believable.

Great read!

This was a great entertaining read. I cared for all the characters. What I didn't care for was the actual fanfic of Simon Snow. I only care about the series because Cather cared so much. Don't think I'd read Carry On but Fangirl was great.
