Summary: Cath is in her first year of college, living separately from her twin sister and her fragile dad for the first time. Although some things remain the same, such as her intense fandom for the Simon Snow series and her popular fan fiction blog, she isn’t sure she can handle all of the change that is the college experience.
Why I Am Recommending: This was a delightful read that took me right back to college and the perils of dating during that time of your life. College is a great time to begin the process of finding yourself and Cath is trying to figure out who she is, especially independent from her twin sister. This story had a heavy does of nostalgia for me and I also found it to be very heartwarming, which is a typical description of my experience with Rainbow Rowell thus far. This book also has the bonus of a book within a book as you get to enjoy excerpts from Simon Snow.
