Join my friend Victoria Koops and me as we chat about Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I absolutely adored this book! It brought back so many memories from my college days, introduced me to true fan fiction, and just brought me pure joy!

Come take a listen as Victoria and I chat all about the characters, plot line, college, and more! Yes, we may veer off in a different direction and dive into the world of Marvel vs. DC movies. I promise, it does relate!

Come join us for some fun!

A little about Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell:

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.

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? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
