Rainbow Rowell lives in Omaha, Nebraska. FANGIRL is her second YA novel and a New York Times bestseller, as is her first novel, ELEANOR AND PARK.
Here’s a few audiobooks that we think are definitely worth a listen.
The Zoella Book Club has arrived and we're delighted to publish two of the eight books chosen; Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard.
Celebrate World Book Day with Rainbow Rowell's Kindred Spirits, a short story from the author of the bestselling Eleanor & Park, Fangirl and Carry On, written especially for World Book Day.

If you really *want* to call your Congressional reps, but haven't quite managed it yet, I encourage you to just START. I have major phone anxiety and worry a lot about being perceived as a crank or a troublemaker. I'm loath even to say my first name out loud because I know I sound like a lunatic hippie -- especially to all the Republicans answering the phones in my representatives' offices.
But I've started calling them every day, and it's gotten easier. First of all, the staffers who answer the phone are almost always polite and engaged. It's their job.
And second, I try not to think of them as the enemy or even as the other side. I tell myself that I'm talking to intelligent, patriotic people who *also* want our government to be stable, who also believe in rule of law, and checks and balances
I do think that these calls make a difference. I remember working at a newspaper -- and how even a few reader complaints would make my editors nervous. (In my current line of work, one mean tweet can take me down for a week.)
I think the calls make them feel accountable.
So do it! Do it now when you can just leave a message :)
Or do it tomorrow. I've found that it helps to add the rep to your contacts, so you don't have to go looking for numbers every time.
