Dall'autrice di Eleanor & Park Approdata all'università, dove la sua gemella Wren vuole solo divertirsi tra party, alcool e ragazzi, la timidissima Cath si trova sola per la prima volta e si rinchiude nella sua stanza a scrivere la fanfiction di cui migliaia di fan attendono il seguito. Ma una compagna di stanza scontrosa con il suo ragazzo carino che le sta sempre intorno, una professoressa di scrittura creativa che pensa che le fanfiction siano solo un plagio, e un affascinante aspirante scrittore che vuole lavorare con lei, obbligheranno Cath ad affrontare la sua nuova vita…
Cath Avery's life has two polestars: Wren, her identical twin, and the Simon Snow series, a Harry Potter like publishing phenomenon that Cath has been reading and rewriting, as a hugely popular fanfiction author for years. While Cath is an expert on Simon's life, she finds her own difficult, especially now that she's starting college and Wren doesn't want them to room together. Since Cath would rather stay in her room and write than do anything involving other people, that first year is terrifying, which she expected, but also heartbreaking and romantic, which she did not. Rowell (Eleanor & Park) blends Cath's first year of college with excerpts of both the "canon" Simon Snow books and Cath's distinctly non-canonical fanfic, to create a funny and tender coming-of-age story that's also the story of a writer finding her voice. Rowell makes all of Cath's relationships with her father; Wren; her acerbic roommate, Reagan; and, especially, Reagan's ex Levi (who practically takes up residence in their room to woo the skeptical and extremely nervous Cath) touching and utterly real. Ages 13 up.
