Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
For Cath, being a fan is her life. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading, hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere. Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own! She’s got a surly roommate with an always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, and a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words... Will she make it through her freshman year?
