Cath and her twin sister Wren were always into the Simon Snow series. They faithfully lined up at midnight to get the books, and collected all the posters and t-shirts and every kind of memorabilia possible. They were also big into fan-fiction and wrote together, till Wren started to grow away from Simon Snow. Cath didn’t, and when it was time to go off to college, Wren decided to grow away even further and not room with Cath. Between Cath’s tough on the outside room-mate, possibilities of a boyfriend, her slightly disturbed father, and her feelings for her mother who deserted the family when the girls were young, college turns out to be a difficult time for Cath. Her writing and her fan fiction are the two constants that keep her going. An emotional and entertaining story written with equal parts humour, melancholy and charm. Well worth reading!!
