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.
Awww, I haven’t read Rowell in 2 years and this is such a nice revisit to her writing! It has the same adorability and perkiness like Fangirl and Eleanor and Park. Rowell will always be a master of YA Contemporaries, she has had some books published under General Fiction genre but I find myself more attached to her YA books.
This is the story of Elena who is a Star Wars geek and camps out at the movie theater 3 nights before the new movie is released. It’s short, it’s sweet, it reminds us why being nerds is just awesome, and it also reminds us of the innocence of adolscence!
A cute short read celebrating nerdiness and just doing what you love!
