Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they're off to university, and Wren's decided she doesn't want to be one half of a pair any more - she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It's not so easy for Cath. She's horribly shy and has always buried herself in the fan fiction she writes, where she always knows exactly what to say and can write a romance far more intense than anything she's experienced in real life.

Not my usual read but I loved it so much!
I loved this so much! The fact that it wasn't based on sci-fi and fantasy but I still enjoyed it so much means 5 stars. The prose was written so well at times - great evening read to listen to, the descriptive rhythm lulled my anxiety to a gentle sway. I love Cath and Levi so much! I'd date either of them I'm crushing so hard - but in the end they are perfect for each other. I love Reagan so much too! She's a no shits given bad ass with a warm heart. I warmed up to Wren at the end and I thought Art was the perfect blend between 'cool-dad' and 'not-a-Gary-Stu'. I could go on but honestly Rainbow did a brilliant job of making you feel exactly about the characters as you should. The scenes that pulled the heartstrings feel real - both good and bad ones. The potentially mushy scenes were romantic without being an eyerolling cliché. The read was kinda slow but I think it was a character driven story so that's ok. It wasn't painful slow. I saw a lot of myself in the characters and learnt alongside Cath in her experiences. The narration of this audiobook (I put down the actual book to listen to it halfway through - eyes sore from the flu) was actually really nice and the right mix of calm while still keeping the emotions. I love it, thank you so much to Rainbow and the narrator.
