Fangirl by Rowell, Rainbow (2014) Paperback - Rainbow Rowell

The author Rainbow Rowell often writes about people who talk a lot, people who feel like they're screwing up, and people who fall in love. This is especially true in her book, Fangirl. The main character Cath falls in love with a boy named Levi. The whole time they are falling in love, she feels like she is messing stuff up with him. She is very sceptical that he likes her or that anyone likes her. Rainbow Rowell's biography said that as a teen she was very cynical about love and romance. This is reflected in most of her books since the characters are sceptical about love but end up falling in love anyway. Also in this book Cath reads/writes fanfiction. Rainbow Rowell said that she also reads/writes fanfiction. The author and Cath have many similarities.

quote 2018-04-19 15:36
"Levi's smile faded, and he sat back slowly" page 222
Fangirl by Rowell, Rainbow (2014) Paperback - Rainbow Rowell

I chose this quote because it showed Levi's feelings at that moment in the story. Levi is sorry that he didn't realize that he hurt Cath's feelings at first. He didn't know that Cath came to the party and saw what he was doing that upset her the most. This part of the book adds a lot of light suspense that makes you wonder what will happen next and shows Levi's feelings for Cath.

quote 2018-04-19 13:09
“I don’t trust anybody. Not anybody. And the more that I care about someone, the more sure I am they’re going to get tired of me and take off.”
― Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl
Fangirl by Rowell, Rainbow (2014) Paperback - Rainbow Rowell

This quote by the character Cath really represents her personality and the authors style. Cath isn't very confident and she has trust issues. Her mom left her when she was young and she hasn't recovered since. This affects Caths writing ability and relationships.The author, Rainbow Rowell, writes like this in a lot of her books. She talks about real issues that a lot of young people deal with. She writes about doubts, confidence, and family problems. This quote is very representative of Cath and the author.

I chose this broken heart photo to describe my book for multiple reasons. After an incident with Abel, Cath is very upset and heart broken. Also her relationship with Wren makes her feel terrible since Wren is her sister.

"Cath took a slow breath. She felt lightheaded and strained, like something too big was hatching inside her ribs."

quote 2018-04-13 13:15
"She got on like she was lost and ended up there" (Rowell 51).
Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell

The description of Eleanor in this quote is very powerful. In the book, Eleanor's home life is pretty awful, and she is forced to face each day with little energy.  In this scene in the book, the true pain Eleanor is feeling is showing clearly through her facial expressions and body language.  

 

Rainbow Rowell's unique style is also portrayed in this quote.  Rowell often writes with subtle imagery, where the reader can easily picture the situation without the use of flowery language.  It amazes me how easily Rowell can show the bleak tone through a single line.
