Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Did you enjoy Fangirl but wished you could spend more time with Simon and Baz? Well, so did Rainbow Rowell. In Carry On, readers are treated to a full imagining of the world of Simon and Baz. Jumping right into the final year at Watford School of Magicks, Simon and Baz are roommates and already established as enemies but the year is not starting out as it should. The “Chosen One’s” relationships have all ended or changed over the break and now Baz is a no-show. The pressure mounts for Simon as he must navigate the everyday struggles of school and friendships along with not-so-regular task of defeating his arch-nemesis, the Insidious Humdrum. Weighing on his mind even more, where is Baz? And why does it bother him so much?
The same humor, warmth, and well-defined characters that readers have come to expect from Rainbow Rowell, now in fantasy format!
