Book Review: "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell
It kind of hurts to write this review a little, because it means that I really did come to the last page and this book really is over. This is the first book that I've wanted to reread immediately in a long time... I just love Cath and everyone she meets! I love the way she grows through this book - from dealing with family history, dealing with Wren's low points, dealing with her father's crazy and dealing with her own severe anxiety and self-confidence issues.
I absolutely adore Rainbow Rowell. Everything she writes is better than the last - and she sets the bar pretty high for herself on that count. She just rocks and it KILLS ME that she was in my area TWICE this fall, and I couldn't attend either event. Someday....
Another awesome thing she did with this book, in a completely indirect way, was help me understand fanfiction. I never really "got it" until now, so I'm pretty glad about that. Also, I will never be able to think about The Outsiders in the same way again. Sigh.....
