Fangirl Vol. 1 {book review}

I jumped at the chance to read this manga adaptation of Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl. Fangirl Vol. 1 follows Cath as she navigates starting college while being somewhat estranged from her twin sister, Wren. Cath is floundering since doesn’t quite know how to deal with her roommate and her roommate’s boyfriend. Plus she’s navigating an advance writing class while writing her own Simon Snow fan fiction. And Simon Snow does take a lot of her energy. Gabi Nam’s illustrations really brought Cath’s two different worlds to life by depicting the angst and emotions of Cath trying to navigate college life while flipping into Simon Snow’s world through Cath’s eyes. Sam Magg’s adaptation was true to the storyline. I loved the story so much that I had to grab a copy of Fangirl to finish out the storyline. Excited to read the rest of the story in graphic form.

I was able to read this advance copy via NetGalley.
