Characters

This book was very life like. It showed the struggles of going to college, leaving family and learning how to figure things out on your own “In new situations, all the trickiest rules are the ones nobody bothers to explain to you. (And the ones you can't Google.)” (Rowell p.49) She ends up having trust issues from her family. “I don’t trust anybody. Not anybody. And the more that I care about someone, the more sure I am they’re going to get tired of me and take off.” ( Rowell p. 75) FAngirl, shows reality and showes how she gets throgh the struugles of being left by a parent, having a mentally sick parent, having a twin who always gets in trouble, having issues with teachers, and getting trough troubles with a boyfriend. I loved this book and it showed me the realaity of adulthood.
