The inaugural LibraryReads list debuted this summer with the top ten September titles voted for by librarians all over the country. And although LibraryReads currently has an adult focus, a YA title topped the list!
Patrons of all ages are already fangirls and fanguys of bestselling author, Rainbow Rowell, thanks to Eleanor & Park, praised for its “observational precision and richness” by John Green in The New York Times, and for its “superb performances” in Publishers Weekly‘s starred audio review. Now Rowell returns (and narrator Rebecca Lowman is back, too!) to introduce listeners to the ultimate fangirl, Cath. Being a fan of Simon Snow is Cath’s whole life as she reads and rereads the Simon Snow series, writes fan fiction, and dresses up like characters. But as Cath grows up, she struggles with letting her obsession go. How long can she go on living inside someone else’s fiction? YA listeners and adults alike will fall in love with FANGIRL while finding out.
