Keep Calm and CARRY ON!

FANGIRL fans rejoice! Rainbow Rowell’s CARRY ON, a YA fantasy following the adventures of Simon & Baz, is available today!

“It’s a brilliantly addictive, genuinely romantic story about teenagers who can’t be neatly sorted into houses, coping with stress and loss and the confusion of just trying to be who they are. It’s as if Rowell turned the Harry Potter books inside out, and is showing us the marvelous, subversive stuffing inside.”
Time Magazine

“Rowell has created a story that is as much a loving critique of the ‘Chosen One’ narrative as it is an example of the genre. The romance, once it gets going, is irresistible and surprisingly tender, but the true strength here is the characterizations… Stock up on copies—this one begs to be reread.”
Booklist, starred review

“With rock-solid worldbuilding, a sweet and believable romance subplot, and satisfying ending, CARRY ON is a monumentally enjoyable reading experience. Hand this to fans of Rowell, Harry Potter, love stories, and magic.” — School Library Journal, starred review
