Edition: Mass Market Paperback, 96 pages, published February 25th 2016 by Macmillans Kids UK
Synopsis: If you broke Elena’s heart, Star Wars would spill out. So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she’s expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does. What she’s not expecting is to be last in a line of only three people; to have to pee into a collectible Star Wars soda cup behind a dumpster or to meet that unlikely someone who just might truly understand the way she feels.
I just read this adorable little story in around half an hour – and I’m so glad I did!
Rainbow has this lovely, unique, recognizable style of writing which really shone through right from the start; and made me want to carry on reading until the end!
Kindred Spirits is basically a short story about nerds, for nerds. It’s a mini celebration of nerd-ity, and no one could possibly do it better than the author of much loved YA novel, Fangirl.
I love the diary, day-by-day layout of this little book! And the characters…ah, the characters. I love Gabe – and I actually have a friend who reminds me of him – and I don’t understand how Rainbow can make you love characters so much in such a short space of time! That author has serious skill.
This story is cute, sweet and funny. Okay, scratch that.
It’s freaking adorable.
And if you love Rainbow Rowell as much as I do, you need to pick this up. Stop caring that it’s only 62 pages long and will only take you half an hour to read – it’s perfect, and it’s a must have for the Rainbow section of your shelf.
Seriously, get out there and treat yours
helf, both you and that lovely bookcase of yours (I’m jealous of it, such a gorgeous collection you have there), and get this amazing little story! It might be small, but it deserves a big rating…
