Dates Read: 7/22/19-7/24/19

This story follows Cather Avery, a college freshman who is trying to figure out where she belongs at the University of Nebraska. Her twin, Wren, has asked to get her own roommate, and has continued her life away from Cath. Cath is stuck in a room with a junior, Reagan. Reagan has a guy named Levi who is always positive and optimistic. He is constantly trying to get Cath to relax and be open around him. In Cath’s fiction writing class, she meets a boy named Nick, who she writes really good fiction with. Eventually, Nick turns out to be a jerk, Cath begins to fall in love with Levi, Wren begins to spiral, and Cath’s father begins to have larger medical issues.

I did a really bad job explaining this book, but it is really good, trust me. It took me a really long time to get into it, but once I got to about the halfway mark, I was completely sold on the story. It wasn’t my favorite, especially because Eleanor & Park set the bar really high, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I did think the relationships were a little flimsy, at best. I wish that they were a little stronger considering they were the focus of the story. I also thought that the fanfictions/ Simon Snow segments were better written than the actual book. BUT the story was still incredibly cute, fun, and overall enjoyable.
