Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they're off to university and Wren's decided she doesn't want to be one half of a pair any more - she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It's not so easy for Cath. She's horribly shy and has always buried herself in the fan fiction she writes, where she always knows exactly what to say and can write a romance far more intense than anything she's experienced in real life.
Without Wren Cath is completely on her own and totally outside her comfort zone. She's got a surly room-mate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can't stop worrying about her dad, who's loving and fragile and has never really been alone.
Now Cath has to decide whether she's ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she's realizing that there's more to learn about love than she ever thought possible.
I give it - 5/5 (I really give it a million out of 5)
My review - I don't know why it has took me this long to read this book! I loved every second of it and I need more from these characters.
In this story we follow Cath, she is starting College with her twin sister Wren. They did everything together but now they are attending college Wren wants to go off and do her own thing. She doesn't want to share a room with Cath, and she wants to party and meet boys. Cath on the other hand would rather stay in her dorm room writing fanfiction. Cath has a very outgoing roommate called Reagan who's 'boyfriend' Levi is always round their room. Reagan was one of my favourite characters in this book, she came off as bitchy but her heart was in the right place and she did make me laugh a lot. Cath is out of her comfort zone in college and with things going on with her dad back home and drama between her and Wren she doesn't know if she can make it through her first year in college.
I really loved how we got to read parts of her Simon Snow fanfiction - Carry On - I really enjoyed that part of the story.
I related a lot to Cath in this book. She reminded me of me when I was 17, writing fanfiction and just trying to get a long in life. If only there was guys like Levi when I was 17 *sigh*
I think that is why I enjoyed the story a lot. I have never identified with a character so much as I have with Cath.
This book was a really fun read with the right amount of drama and romance added in the mix. I really enjoyed reading about Cath overcoming all her struggles and trying to have a great time at college.
This story had me gripped from the very first page and I never wanted it to end. I loved all the characters and their relationships with one another.
Rainbow has truly written an amazing book that I think is now my favourite book of 2015. She really knows how to write a fantastic story that will give you all the feels when reading it.
