Title: Kindred Spirits
Author: Rainbow Rowell
Genre: YA, Short stories
“I saw the prequels in the theater,” Gabe said. “When I was a kid. I thought they were awesome”
“And now?” she asked.
“They’re my first love,” he said. “I can’t be objective.”
‘Everybody likes everything these days. The whole world is a nerd.’
‘Are you mad because other people like Star Wars? Are you mad because people like me like Star Wars?’
If you broke Elena’s heart, Star Wars would spill out. So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she’s expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does. What she’s not expecting is to be last in a line of only three people; to have to pee into a collectible Star Wars soda cup behind a dumpster or to meet that unlikely someone who just might truly understand the way she feels. Kindred Spirits is an engaging short story by Rainbow Rowell, author of the bestselling Eleanor & Park, Fangirl and Carry On, and is part of a handful of selected short reads specially produced for World Book Day.
What I think of it
This is the first book of Rainbow Rowell that I actually finish. I tried to read Eleanor & Park a year ago but never finished. This book was under 100 pages and was on sale on kindle so I gave it a shot, thank God that I did. I enjoyed this story and it made me laugh multiple times. I absolutely adored Gabe more than anyone in this book. This short story is super cute and I recommend it to anyone that wants to read something light and quick. Also, if you love Star Wars (just like me) you HAVE to read it, it will make you want to watch them all over again!
