Spoiler Alert: Fanfics are more important than living her life, boys aren't her strongest point and she misses her sister Wren too much.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is a book about a girl named Cath, she has a twin sister named Wren. They both have just started their first year at university (college). Their dad isn't stable while he's alone. Cath struggles when it comes to being social, she would rather spend her time writing up her fanfic which she is known for online. Her dream of getting her twin sister as a roommate gets flushed down the toilet. Her roommate introduces her to Levi which she ends up having an awkward romance with.
This book was like any other YA Contemporary book. It involved a main character that was possibly alone, not enjoying their life that much and need someone they could turn to. With Cathy missing her sister Wren, the person she turned to was her love interest Levi which by the way he was described sounded amazing. Maybe one day I'll have my own Levi.
I really enjoyed this book because I felt like I could relate to this character, being awkward when it comes to the opposite gender, wanting to put all of my effort into the fictional world. This ended up being an easy read for me!
Enjoyed some but was annoyed by, fanfic readings, inner dialog from Cath, her teacher/paper conflict, her need to tag everything. I enjoyed her characters honesty with new experiences, her struggle with a romantic relationship, her responsibilities and how she took control of them. She read much younger than she was in some ways and much older in others. Her college experience was very realistic, and honest. The college experience, is just so far behind me I wasn't that interested in reviewing it. I loved the idea that she wrote fanfic till it was read, too much for me. I never got interested in that story, it was wasted book space in my opinion. The romance was very PG, enough said. Yes, I know I am in the minority here.
I predict that Wren and Cath will become closer as time goes on. When Wren got hurt, even though her and Cath were in a fight, Cath still went to the hospital to make sure that she was okay. Wren and Cath have also talked a lot more after that moment and became closer. These examples show that they care a lot more about each other then they did. I know this because when people help each other, it usually means that they care for each other
I chose to use this video because it shows two sisters hugging which usually means that they care for each other like Cath and Wren do.
