Simon Snow just wants to relax and savour his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains, where maybe he'll be safe. Simon can't even enjoy the fact that his room-mate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can't stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down.

Great Plot, Great Characters, Amazing World
I struggled to put this book down. Once you get past the obvious HP parallels, you start to admire how charming and modern Rowell's magical world really is. The world is so appealing to lovers of literature, where a magician has to be well-read in popular culture to fully harness their powers.
