I have just been on to a Fan Fiction site... wow.
Fanfiction is when someone takes either the story or characters (or both) of a certain piece of work, whether it be a novel, tv show, movie, etc, and create their own story based on it.
It is huge. Check out this site https://www.fanfiction.net/book/
This book is based on Fan Fiction and it enters the world of Cath- a fanfic writer. She is immersed into the world to hide herself from the real one, and she takes 1000,s of online followers with her. It is just that it is not the real world, and no matter how hard you try to hide yourself online- the real world is forever gazing you in the eyes.
“To really be a nerd, she'd decided, you had to prefer fictional worlds to the real one.”
Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they're off to university and Wren's decided she doesn't want to be one half of a pair any more - she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It's not so easy for Cath. She's horribly shy and has always buried herself in the fan fiction she writes, where she always knows exactly what to say and can write a romance far more intense than anything she's experienced in real life.
Without Wren Cath is completely on her own and totally outside her comfort zone. She's got a surly room-mate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can't stop worrying about her dad, who's loving and fragile and has never really been alone.
Now Cath has to decide whether she's ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she's realizing that there's more to learn about love than she ever thought possible . . .
And sometimes you held somebody's hand just to prove that you were still alive, and that another human being was there to testify to that fact
