Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath has been part of a duo for all of her life–she and her twin sister Wren held each other together through their mother’s abandonment, their brilliant father’s occasional mental breakdowns, and the twists and turns of the Simon Snow fandom. A voracious reader and prolific fan fiction author, Cath is made to go it alone for the first time as she and Wren enter college; Wren no longer wants to keep up the Cath n’ Wren duo. Rowell manages to blend the beauty and loneliness of an escape into fiction with strained, but unbreakable family ties, and the fear and thrill of opening up to new friends and the potential for love.
I highly recommend it, particularly for young adults who know all too well the madness of fandoms or for those unfamiliar with that world who want to learn more!
