Rainbow Rowell Really is Writing the Simon Snow Story!

Simon and Baz will Carry On!

Rainbow Rowell Really is Writing the Simon Snow Story!

It's hard to believe that it was only a year ago that FYA fell madly in love with Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl. If you've read Fangirl (and if you haven't, you're not living your best life), then you also know what it's like to be obsessed with the Simon Snow series, the fictional YA series that the main character writes swoony slashfic about (inspired by Rainbow's love of Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy fanfiction). So, imagine our excitement, when last night, on Twitter, Rainbow announced that she's making all of our Simon and Baz dreams come true! She's finally writing Carry On, the Simon Snow story, (the Simon and Baz story) to be released in October.

Here's more about the book, from Rainbow's tumblr:

Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest, and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he’ll be safe. Simon can’t even enjoy the fact that his roommate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can’t stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you’re the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savor anything. Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story — but far, far more monsters.

COMMENCE EPIC FLAIL. And if you need other ways to express your excitement, may I suggest you visit the FYA store? We have you covered.

Kandis Seaver's photo About the Author: Kandis read adult fiction as a teenager and now makes up for it by reading all the YA she can get her hands on. (The swoonier, the better!) She lives in Austin, where she enjoys Wonder Woman collectibles, livetweeting everything, and cocktails with her FYA book club pals. She has never stopped watching Veronica Mars.
