Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell

About (Goodreads)
A short story about waiting and believing — but mostly waiting — by the New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park, Fangirl and Carry On. All proceeds go to the ACLU Foundation.

When Elena decided to camp out for the next Star Wars movie, she was expecting a celebration, a communion — a line full of people who love Star Wars so much, they have to share it.

She wasn’t expecting this:  a freezing sidewalk, nowhere to pee, and three nights stuck with a boy who decided not to like her before they even met.

It’s enough to make a girl leave the line…

But Elena came here for Star Wars, and it will take more than bad weather and a dumb boy to squash her spirits.

My Thoughts

This was such a cute, quick, witty short story. I loved it! Rainbow Rowell doesn’t disappoint me in her writings so it was no surprise that 1. I loved this! and 2. I understood every word about Star Wars mentioned which made me LOVE her more because she wrote a short story about LOVING. STAR. WARS.

The nerd in me was like yesssss! And the reader in me was like, WHY IS THIS ENDING HERE?!! I really could do with more to this story. Especially when it comes to Elena and Gabe. They were just getting good.

I think it says something about an author that can develop such a great character like Elena in such a quick read. The humor in this story is amazing and her knowledge about Star Wars…I mean, just when you think you can’t love someone more..they nerd out on you.

5 out of 5 stars! Pick it up now!
