5 loved this short story stars!!
I devour every Rainbow Rowell book that I can get my hands on. However I didn’t even know this one was released until after the fact. You can only order it on book depository. Its a special UK book day edition…
I adored this book, it is about a young woman “living” in line to see the new Star Wars movie. I honestly have never been able to get into the hype of Star Wars but did not feel left out by reading this book. Of course nothing is going according to her plans. She expected lots of people and lots of fun. So far she has only two other people in line that are not what she expected.
This story is so small maybe 60 pages but it has so much packed into it. It had all the feels associated with a normal Rainbow Rowell book and like all of her books I was left wanting more!! I could’ve stayed with these characters for hundreds of more pages 🙂 I will always recommend Rainbow Rowell to everyone. She writes YA and adult… go pick up one of her books you will not be disappointed.
‘Everybody likes everything these days. The whole world is a nerd.’
‘Are you mad because other people like Star Wars? Are you mad because people like me like Star Wars?’
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.
