I don't say this often, but I wish I could have had this book when I was 15. Rainbow manages to create a world that not only embraces and engages with fantasy and fandom, but handles queer characters gracefully and powerfully. Simon Snow and Basilton Pitch are my favorite couple in young adult literature, period. (Plus the lady characters RULE.) For linguistics nerds, for Harry Potter fans, for anyone who's looking for a world to get lost in. For me, and probably for you.

Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who's ever been chosen.
That's what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he's probably right.
Half the time, Simon can't even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor's avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon's face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here--it's their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even bother to show up.
Carry On is a ghost story, a love story and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story - but far, far more monsters.
