Descripción de editorial
Cath ama os seus livros e a sua família. Haverá espaço para mais alguém? Todo o mundo é fã dos livros de Simon Snow. Mas Cath vai mais longe: ser fã desses livros tornou-se a sua vida. Ela e a sua irmã gémea, Wren, refugiaram-se na obra de Simon Snow quando eram miúdas, e na verdade foi isso que as salvou da ruína emocional que foi a perda da mãe. Ler. Reler. Interagir em fóruns, escrever ficção baseada na obra de Simon Snow, vestir-se como as personagens dos livros. Mas essas fantasias deixam de fazer sentido quando se cresce.
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.
