Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
I totally loved this fabulous book! Rainbow Rowell took her characters Simon and Baz from their fictional existence in her book Fangirl and brought them and their Harry Potter knock off story to life in this fun to read book. Simon Snow is the chosen one who is the most powerful boy magician when he is brought from foster care to Watford, a boarding school in Great Britain for children with magic. All the other kids grew up in magical families and he is the only "Normal" among them, not knowing he had any magikal power until it rather erupted when he was 11 years old. His best friend is Penny, a very smart girl, and he has a beautiful girlfriend named Angela and his roomamate, Boz, is a vampire who has been trying to kill him for years. This is their senior year at Watford and they are still battling the Insidious Humdrum who is creating non-magikal spots throughout Great Britain somehow and is stalking Simon. There is magic, mystery, adventure and romance in this really fun to read book. I also like that the author gave this book a proper ending. I received this book free to review from Netgalley and I highly recommend it!
