Rainbow Rowell

In Rowell’s (Eleanor & Park, 2013) latest novel, Cath Avery, a painfully shy teen, is trying to navigate the lonely road of her freshman year at college. She hoped her twin sister Wren would be at her side, but she is spending all of her time partying. Feeling all alone, Cath hides in her room where she works on her Simon Snow fanfiction. It is the only way she can escape herself and be somewhere else. Otherwise, she's just another social misfit stuck with a surly roommate, her roommate's overly friendly boyfriend, and a family that's falling apart. Yet as Cath soon finds out, sometimes, real life can become better than fantasy.
