St. Martin’s Press is releasing the paperback version of Carry On (St. Martin’s Griffin) by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rainbow Rowell with an exciting new cover on May 9, 2017!
**If you haven’t haven’t had a chance to read this YA gem yet, go grab a copy of Carry On.**
Rainbow Rowell writes books about misfits and nerds, or people who feel like misfits and nerds, and how they find their way through life–cracking each other up and falling in love.
She first touched our hearts with her emotional debut young adult novel, Eleanor & Park, which received the prestigious Michael L. Printz Honor for excellence in young adult literature. She then continued her success with the critically acclaimed novels Fangirl (2013) and Landline (2014). Rainbow returned to young adult fiction with Carry On, an epic fantasy following the triumphs and heartaches of Simon and Baz from her beloved bestseller Fangirl.
About Carry On: Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor 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 roommate 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. When you’re the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savor anything.
Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery, and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story– but far, far more monsters.
About the author: Rainbow Rowell writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults (Attachments and Landline). Sometimes she writes about teenagers (Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, and Carry On). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they’re screwing up. And people who fall in love.
When she’s not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips, and arguing about things that don’t really matter in the big scheme of things. She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons. You can learn more on her website: www.rainbowrowell.com
