Description-

  • In Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she's really good at it. 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. Rereading. 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. She doesn't want to.
    Now that they're going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn't want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She's got a surly roommate 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.
    For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories? Open her heart to someone? Or will she just go on living inside somebody else's fiction?

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Rebecca Lowman creates another stunning portrayal in Cath, a fanfiction writer who deals better with her thousands of online friends than the real people who surround her during her first year of college. Lowman begins by expressing Cath's snarky dialogue as well as her unvoiced fears about separating from her identical twin, caring for her emotionally fragile father, and adjusting to college life. Gradually Lowman demonstrates Cath's tentative warmth as she falls in love and begins to trust in others and in her own abilities. Narrator Maxwell Caulfield delivers periodic snippets of a Harry Potter-like series and fragments of Cath's fanfiction. His crisp British tones provide exquisite contrast to Lowman's more emotive narration. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine

    Cath’s freshman year at the University of Nebraska does not begin well: her roommate is aloof and scary; her identical twin sister, Wren, ignores her in favor of beer and some airheaded new friends; and Cath has too much social anxiety to even find the cafeteria. Narrator Rebecca Lowman reads most of this coming-of-age novel, giving depth to Cath and many of the book’s other characters. One of the more delightful aspects of this audio production is the occasional appearance of Maxwell Caulfield, who is the narrator of the Harry Potter–like fantasy novels that Cath is obsessed with and upon which she bases copious fan fiction. Caulfield’s clipped tones poke gentle fun at Cath’s fixation without mocking it, and becomes comically seductive when he reads pieces of Cath’s fan fiction about the forbidden passion between her two main characters—vignettes that relate to elements in Cath’s own life. Ages 13–up. A St. Martin’s Griffin hardcover.

    Starred review from July 15, 2013
    Cath Avery’s life has two polestars: Wren, her identical twin, and the Simon Snow series, a Harry Potter–like publishing phenomenon that Cath has been reading—and rewriting, as a hugely popular fanfiction author—for years. While Cath is an expert on Simon’s life, she finds her own difficult, especially now that she’s starting college and Wren doesn’t want them to room together. Since Cath would rather stay in her room and write than do anything involving other people, that first year is terrifying, which she expected, but also heartbreaking and romantic, which she did not. Rowell (Eleanor & Park) blends Cath’s first year of college with excerpts of both the “canon” Simon Snow books and Cath’s distinctly non-canonical fanfic, to create a funny and tender coming-of-age story that’s also the story of a writer finding her voice. Rowell makes all of Cath’s relationships—with her father; Wren; her acerbic roommate, Reagan; and, especially, Reagan’s ex Levi (who practically takes up residence in their room to woo the skeptical and extremely nervous Cath)—touching and utterly real. Ages 13–up. Agent: Christopher Schelling, Selectric Artists.
