By the author of Eleanor & Park!!


By: Rainbow Rowell

Genre: YA fiction

Pages: 438

Published: 2013

Audiobook: 10 CD's (13 hours)

Read: April

3 out of 5

This novel follows twin sisters, Cath and Wren,  during their first year away at college.  Creatively entwined in their life is the story of  Baz and Simon, characters from a children's series, Simon Snow.  Although the second story foreshadows the main plot I found it rather boring. And I did not like listening to Cath read chapter after chapter of her fanfiction, Carry On. I thought Rowell, once again, had very well developed characters and I and I wanted more of them not Simon Snow.  I feel the book could have been more appealing with mention of Simon Snow (it is important to the story), but didn't need the actual script. Not nearly as good as Rowell's Eleanor and Park.
