Fangirl is a novel by Rainbow Rowell for all teenagers, especially those who love a bit of all light-hearted genres. In this novel there is a bit of drama, comedy as well as romance. It also exhibits the intense love of all avid book readers towards their respective fandoms.
Cath is a 17-year-old introvert and geek who is going off to college in another city away from her home on the insistence of her identical twin sister Wren who believes that it was time that they spread their wings and fly off away from their home. Despite much opposition of Cath to this view, she has to go to college as her father too believes that she has to go away from home. Cath also writes (and is mildly addicted to) fanfiction of a Gemma T. Leslie novel Carry On. This novel revolves around the struggles of Cath as she tries to catch up with the hassle of college. She meets new people and steps into a new world which is very different from her previous one.
This novel has touched my heart and I could feel all the emotions Cath was going through. I laughed and cried with her. I enjoyed reading this novel and I honestly read it in one sitting. It seemed as if I was not my couch but there with Cath throughout the novel.
Unlike many other novels this novel also has important learning. I am not going to spoil it for you but I hope you recognize it. It is very inspiring despite the light mood of the novel.
I am sure that quite a few guys might feel that the novel is only for girls. I do not believe that this is the case. This novel is entertaining for all. I strongly recommend all teenagers to read this beautiful novel that will have your heart hammering at multiple moments.
