My review: 4 of 5 stars
Fangirl is a quirky story about a freshman college student who enjoys writing fanfiction. She’s snarky and nerdy and shy. The story contained stories within it written by a fictional author as well as by the main character herself. This format made the read quite fascinating. The teen voice was authentic, and the dialogue was humorous as well as realistic. The conflict between Levi and Cath that erupted at one point felt forced and never fully explained, and the relationship was a little disconcerting since she became best friends with his ex. Overall, however, I enjoyed the story and the characters. I recommend this book for more mature teens as it deals quite frankly with college life and contains foul language. Fans of John Green will enjoy Rainbow Rowell.
