Every day

Genre: fantasy, young adult, romance

Every Day by David Levithan is a story about a person who literally switches bodies for a day. But they never go back to their original body, they always go around and their new body could be either a girl or boy. They don’t care much about this every day event of their life, until they meet a special someone, a girl who catches their attention and they can’t help but think of her. This book is one of those books that really doesn’t hook you in the first couple pages, but going in a little further will definitely make you ask for more. It shows how a person can go as far as to change their living style to be with their significant other.

Fangirl

Genre: young adult fiction

Most people are in some type of “fandom” and there are all different types. Some are fans of a certain artist, team, or fictional series, whether it be books or tv shows. This is who Cath, the main character of the novel, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is. Caths whole life is about being a fangirl for the magical world of Simon Snow. She even writes her own fanfiction, which is based on two male characters. But life isn’t easy for her. She has social anxiety, her father has a bipolar disorder, her identical twin sister ditched her and has a drinking problem, and her mother abandoned her when she was eight. Throughout the story, Cath learns to overcome her fears and regain her relationship with her sister. She is helped by the few friends she makes in college, who support her during her struggles and support her when she is writing fanfiction. Overall, the story is realistic about what it is to be a “fangirl” and the characters themselves are realistic too. Most characters have their own flaws and this makes the story realistic because just like the characters, nobody is perfect.
