Los meses son diferentes en la universidad, especialmente el primer año. Suceden demasiadas cosas. Cada mes del primer año equivale a seis meses normales: son como meses de perros. Cath y Wren son hermanas gemelas y son fanáticas de la serie Simon Snow desde que su madre se fue. Pasan el tiempo en los foros escribiendo sobre la serie, así como caracterizándose de los personajes. Un buen día, Wren decide dejar atrás la serie y empezar una nueva vida en la universidad, ir a fiestas, divertirse y no ser la compañera de cuarto de su hermana. Cath por su parte se siente sola, aislada, con amigos literarios, pero sin amigos en realidad, lo cual quiere cambiar. Pero cambiar implica dejar de hacer fanfiction , dejar atrás Simon Snow , vivir sin la presencia de su hermana, buscar su identidad y empezar a ser ella misma. ¿Será posible para Cath?, ¿cómo podrá enfrentarse a su nueva realidad sin sus compañeros de siempre? Un libro lleno de cuestionamientos, donde la fraternidad y el amor a sí mismo y al otro son los generadores de cambios. * La autora está en el número 13 de la lista de Book Teen de Amazon. * Su libro Eleanor & Park fue considerado uno de los diez mejores libros de ficción para jóvenes en 2014 por YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association). * Entertainment Weekly anunció que los estudios Dreamworks compraron los derechos para producir una película sobre Eleanor & Park , novela anterior de la autora, que está a cargo del guion inicial. El lanzamiento se prevé para 2015. * Fangirl aborda temas como las relaciones amorosas, el abandono, las enfermedades psicológicas, el impacto de las acciones de los padres en los hijos, la madurez psicológica, el alcoholismo; todos temas de interés para los jóvenes lectores. La crítica ha dicho... «Una deliciosa, cálida y poderosa balada de una nerd destinada a la grandeza.» New York Journal of Books «Absolutamente cautivadora.» Kirkus Reviews «Una divertida y tierna historia de iniciación que a la vez es la historia de una escritora encontrando su voz.» Publishers Weekly «Rowell logra captar tanto el popular universo del fanfic como la mentalidad de una joven de 18 años. Me considero una fangirl de esta encantadora historia de iniciación.» Entertainment Weekly «Tan divertida como embarazosa, y tan encantadora como fiel a la realidad de los frikis... Fangirl es lectura linda y conmovedora para fangirls y fanboys de todas las edades.» Tor.com « Fangirl cuenta con una historia original, una protagonista que enfrenta un duro despertar en el mundo rsquo;, un romance que se construye paso a paso y que me tuvo suspirando en los momentos más inesperados. Recomendado para quienes disfrutaron del estilo de Rainbow Rowellen E&P o que simplemente disfrutan de las novelas juveniles que no están cargadas de dramas ni protagonistas que caen en el estigma del chico malo. Los chicos buenos que trabajan en Starbucks pueden ser incluso mejores.» Mi realidad de tinta/blog

From Library Staff

Karen is reading Fangirl.

“At turns funny, sweet, smart, and sad, Fangirl traces Cath’s journey to independence as she begins college, struggles to have an identity separate from her twin sister, find her voice and passion as a writer and fall in love, maybe, for the first time. As sharp and emotionally resonant as Rowell... Read More »

Read it over and over again. Great for a casual read, yet still impactful and leaves you feeling satisfied like a warm mug of apple cider.

Fangirl is definitely a cutesy, quick read, perfect for curling up with on cold days under the covers. The story deals with college freshman Cather (Cath for short) learning to adapt to her new, more independent life, as she struggles with the growing distance between her and her twin sister. There’s also the fight against her feelings towards a boy who’s constantly hanging around her dorm and the constant worry she has for her father back home. I found this book to be particularly fun to read because we get to see a clear character development and growth within the main heroine. If you’re into romance and have ever “fangirled” over anything, you have to pick this one up.

The book Fangirl reminds me of my first time at middle school, like a box full of surprises. Cath is a college freshman, but is having a tough time since she has to do everything by herself from making friends, preparing for finals to all the way to going out of her dorm to find the cafeteria. Cath is an identical twin with Wren. They spend most of their lives together and now are going their separate ways. Cath is also passionate in fan fiction writing about Simon Snow, a book series. This book was a bit boring in the beginning, but once you continue reading it, it gets really interesting!

A quirky, offbeat story about fanfiction, finding yourself, and finding others.

Summary:
Fangirl is about Cather “Cath” Avery’s life in her first year of college. Cath has a passion for writing that made her join a Fiction-Writing class, and write Carry On, which is a fanfiction novel for the “Harry Potter” series in her world, called the Simon Snow series. But her twin sister, Wren (the former co-author of Carry On) decides to go to another university, and leaves Cath to take care of her father’s mental needs and finish their fanfiction novel alone. With her roommate’s distractingly omni-present boyfriend, and her classmate with scandalously good looks, Cath struggles to maintain love, family ties, and her passion in her notorious procrastination of life. This epic has Cath’s difficult daily-struggles of college life and snippets of her fanfics, giving the readers views of both college life and the world of fan fiction.

My opinion:
Overall, I really liked this book for the unique characters, and the fanfiction in between. I was surprised with the fact that this book has very relatable events people have to encounter on a daily basis, and how to approach them, such as betrayal and sibling relationships. I expected Fangirl to be just a bit more amusing in comical situations, but there wasn't much comic. I like this book more than I thought I would, because of the themes discussed. One thing that really intrigued me are the different viewpoints of the character, and made me understand why the main character, and other people, would feel that way. I loved the mood of the story- the cozy, homey feeling it gave- for the many places she visited. The main character herself, Cath, is inspirational because of her passion
being successful, and her positive relationships with other characters.

I have always wanted to read this book and I am glad I did! This was such an enjoyable read for me. I connected to the main character as she transitioned from high school to college, a similar experience I went through as well. This book has an adorable friendship to romance, some awkward experiences, and lessons about becoming your own adult.

I read the original fangirl book with the pink cover and some fanart inside I thought it was a really good book to be honest I loved how Cath grew as a character and how she and Ren (her sister) tried to patch things up in the end. The chemistry between Cath and Levi was cute in a enjoyable way and by that i mean I really enjoyed reading about them because they were the most cutest couple ever. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I believe that rainbow rowell will continue writing good books because she has good writing skills.This book is a must read for fans of rainbow rowell or maybe you're someone that's just curious to read something new and i hope whoever else reads enjoys it as much as I do.

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell is one of my favorite books ever of all time, so when this originally came out I was so excited to read it....and then I stopped after the first couple chapters. Her storytelling abilities are just too good and I was relating to the main character a little too much...so I put it down (enter Sarah J Maas and years of fantasy/mythology). Sometimes I just don't like reading things like that in my very limited free time. But I always intended to finish it someday.

While I still empathize a lot with the main character and what goes on inside her head, I'm so glad I finally read this and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was beautiful and real and relatable. In one part she even used the line "This....and this....and this..." that I LOOOVE in Song of Achilles (by Madeline Miller) and I had to stop myself from squealing out loud.

As a nerdy almost college aged girl, this spoke to me. Rainbow Rowell is a wonderful writer and this book is must-read for anyone who enjoys reading or writing fanfiction or just connecting to life in general. Absolutely lovely.

The events of the book take place during Cath Avery's freshman year at college. When it turns out her identical twin Wren does not want to room with her but meet new people, Cath is alone and without her twin's support for the first time in her life. The only consistency in her life becomes her daily posts in her lengthy and hugely popular fanfiction novel, Carry On, Simon. Between juggling a brusque roommate, her changing relationship with her sister, and her concern for her father's mental stability, Cath's college experience is a never-ending rollercoaster ride of both ups and downs that will expose strengths she never knew she had.

LibraryK8 Jun 24, 2014

In the age of tumblr, fanfiction and fanart, Cath is a relateable character for any teen who has geeked out over a book, tv show or movie. Starting her freshman year of college, Cath is facing several new obstacles. Her twin sister Wren doesn't want to room with her so “they can meet other people.” She is dealing with her father’s mental illness. And college has taken time away from completing her epic online fanfiction Carry On written in the world of Simon Snow (a character reminiscent Harry Potter). On top of it all, Cath might be falling in love with her roommate's boyfriend.
