Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell - Review

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

Where did I get it? I bought it
What's it about? This is a novella about a girl called Elena who starts camping out to be in line for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She's 17, and she imagines that the line will be a crowd of people and that she'll make forever friends and that it'll all be amazing and fun. Instead she's third in line after Troy, who's been in line for all the prequels and is a veteran, and Gabe, who doesn't want to talk to her. Her mum thinks queueing is the most stupid thing Elena could do, and keeps coming to make sure she's okay. Elena won't give in, not even when she's freezing cold or when she has to pee behind a dumpster into a Star Wars cup. 
What age range is it for? 13+, there's very little of anything taboo in it. 
Are any main characters LGBTQ+? No
Are any main characters non-white? Yes, Elena is Vietnamese
Are any main characters disabled either mentally or physically? No
Is there any sex stuff? No 
Are drugs mentioned or used? No
Is there any talk of death? No not at all
Are there swear words? A few
Would I recommend the book? Yes, it's a very sweet novella if you like Rainbow Rowell already. It is in the vein of Fangirl as it focuses on nerd culture and as a huge Star Wars nerd myself I liked it. 
How many stars? Eight out of ten
Where is the book going now? I'll keep it because I like Rowell's stuff and I have quite the collection.
