#1 New York Times bestselling author!
Booklist Editors’ Choice 2015 - Youth!
Named a "Best Book of 2015" by Time Magazine, School Library Journal, Barnes & Noble, NPR, PopSugar, The Millions, and The News & Observer!

Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who's ever been chosen.

That's what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he's probably right.

Half the time, Simon can't even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor's avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon's face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here -- it's their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even bother to show up.

Carry On is a ghost story, a love story and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story - but far, far more monsters.

Oh gosh

Okay I wasn’t sure I would like this book, but it was so refreshingly good that I’m surprised, and I’m not surprised by books much now a days.

Absolutely a book that deserves a read!

I loved this. Perfect for young people—or the young at heart. The book is a delightful homage/twist to the young wizard who shall not be named. But it also forges its own path with a memorable story about identity and young love. A total triumph.

one of the best books i've ever read

i've read many MANY magical related books. and i've also read many lgbt+ books. this book truly takes the cake for being the best of both worlds. the romance isn't just some side gig to the plot, and the story isn't compelling to the readers just because of the romance. they're both equally important to the story and they both affect how the characters interact with each other. with the characters being hard not to adore, the compelling story, and the blossoming love, i assure you, you'll never find the time of day to stop reading!
