Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath is a new freshman in college. Cath is a twin. Cath writes Simon Snow fan fiction and Cath is not ready to face the world on her own. Fangirl is the geeky story of Cath and her experiences as she learns, and fails, to navigate life in college without her twin sister holding her hand (you could say Wren is a little more independent).
This story is bound to resonate with anyone who has ever felt even the slightest bit anxious about anything. Though often serious, it is a heartwarming story of love, friendship, sisterhood and what it means to be your own person.
