A love story about opening your heart by Rainbow Rowell, the New York Times bestselling author of ELEANOR & PARK
Special collector's edition with limited edition Emergency Dance Party print, coloured edges and ribbon marker
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 . . .

Some reviewers found this book's plot too simple. Some found themselves distant from Cath and the fictional world she w...
4,25 starsIt's silly how much I could relate to Cath, especially compared to my own 19-year-old self, having just moved away from home. I never wrote fanfiction, but I sure as hell read it, and I was so painfully clumsy and awkward and anxious, socially. I still am, some days, but I have managed to ...
I enjoyed the story of Cath and her sister Wren, two young women in their freshman year of college who are trying to come to terms with growing into adulthood. Wren is launching herself into her idea of adulthood, with wild parties and brutal separation from her family. The unsociable Cath is wardin...
I was able to enjoy this book to some degree. I'm not a fan of Harry Potter and i don't agree with homosexuality, so the book lost points for those. Despite that, i really got into the book for just over half of it. I was able to relate to Cath and Fangirl made me want to read fanfiction, forgetting...
