When I first picked up Fangirl the first thing I noticed was the length, but don't let that scare you. Although the book is lengthy it reads quickly. Actually, when I reached the end, I wished there had been another hundred pages. Cath, the main character, is very relatable to anyone trying to discover who they are or to anyone trying to adjust to a new situation. Cath's twin sister, Wren, easily adjusts to college life and leaves Cath to fend for herself against a new roommate, a new room, new friends, and new classes. The only thing Cath has left over from the days they were joined at the hip is her fanfiction. Mixed in with a narrative of Cath's day to day activities are Cath's own writings based off of the "worldwide phenomenon" Simon Snow. The characters in these excerpts are just as real as the characters in the book. I found myself rooting for Cath in her new relationships and bumps along the road, but I also found myself rooting for Simon Snow fanfiction. Also, tied in with Cath's obsession with fanfiction is her college adventure. The book follows Cath as she makes new friends, good and bad, and forms new relationships. The romantic side of the book is a perfect serving of subtle. Fangirl is more of a coming of age story where the main character is trying to discover her identity outside of the fanfiction world than a romance. It has a little but of everything for everyone: humor, romance, tragedy, family, comfort, intrigue.
