REVIEW : I’m not a fan of star wars. Let me state that very clearly. But I did enjoy this book as someone who is a part of other fandoms. This was an urbam YA story. I suppose that’s what you call YAs in modern settings, or contemporary. Which is something I haven’t read much of. Contemporary is just boring IMO and I prefer being taken into worlds past and worlds that are fantastical, brimming with magic and wonder. Not brimming with cell phones and bullying. But I really enjoyed this book.
I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did but I think Miss. Rainbow Rowell just got herself another fan! This is a story about a group of kids coming together to watch a very delayed new release in the Star Wars franchise. As they sit outside the theatre trying to bond, things happen, little things but they seem big to some and small to others. Elena isn’t boring at all, she’s outside the norm of the Star Wars fan-base and that causes a rift with some people and then the story goes from there. It’s a lovely little tale that I enjoyed reading and will probably read again and again. Now to get the rest of her books. There, a small “review” for a tiny book.
