Now that they're in college, Cath must decide if she's ready to start living her own life. But does she even want to if it means leaving Simon Snow behind? Cath doesn't need friends IRL. She has her twin sister, Wren, and she's a popular fanfic writer in the Simon Snow community with thousands of fans online. But now that she's in college, Cath is completely outside of her comfort zone. There are suddenly all these new people in her life. She's got a surly roommate with a charming boyfriend, a writing professor who thinks fanfiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome new writing partner... And she barely heard from Wren all semester!"--Amazon.

    In Nam's English-language manga debut, this adaptation of Rowell's popular Fangirl (2013) brings the story to readers in a wholly new way. Focusing on the first half of the novel, this first installment follows identical twins Cath and Wren during their first year of college. Wren wants to be a little more independent and parties it up, leaving introverted, fan-fiction-writing Cath to navigate the college landscape on her own. Nam's fine-lined artwork, focusing intently on faces and body language, brings all of the best elements of manga to the table, particularly when she's depicting Cath's expressive thoughts and gestures as the character goes about her life. Maggs' adaptation does a great job of distilling the original text into cinematic, visual moments to make the most of the new medium. While the manga is a great way to loop in a whole new audience to the story, folks who've already read and enjoyed Fangirl will likely appreciate this opportunity to see it reimagined in a new format.
