Fangirl is about a girl called Cath who is a Simon Snow fan. In fact the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, for Cath though being a fan is her life, and she’s brilliant at it. She and her twin sister Wren, centered their lives around the Simon Snow series when they were kids and it helped them through their mother leaving them at a young age. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, reading, rereading, writing fan fiction and even dressing up like the characters for every movie premier- dedicated fan girls right?
Although Wren has grown out of the fandom, Cath can’t and won’t let it go.
Now they’re at college, Wren has been upfront and told Cath she doesn’t want to be her roommate. Cath on her own, being completely outside of her comfort zone, she has a surly roommate with a charming, always present boyfriend, a professor who detests fan fiction, a handsome classmate who only wants to write, oh and she can’t stop worrying about her Dad who is loving but fragile and has never been alone.
Join Cath and find out whether she can make it through college living her own life, writing her own stories and will she ever move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
