À propos de Rainbow Rowell
Rainbow Rowell est rédactrice dans un journal d’Omaha, dans le Nebraska, où elle vit avec son mari et ses deux enfants. Lorsqu’elle n’écrit pas, elle se passionne de façon quasi obsessionnelle pour les personnages de fiction, planifie des séjours à Disney World, s’investit plus qu’il n’en faut dans des débats futiles, où elle se creuse les méninges afin de découvrir comment ce satané Sherlock Holmes a réussi à simuler la mort.
Son deuxième roman, Eleanor & Park, a été plébiscité par la critique et notamment par John Green, auteur du best-seller Nos étoiles contraires.

Une histoire d'amour profondément émouvante et complètement envoutante dans un univers effrayant de monstres et de fantomes... Un cocktail aussi surprenant que captivant !
Simon Snow déteste cette rentrée. Sa petite amie rompt avec lui ; son professeur préféré l'évite ; et Baz, son insupportable colocataire et ennemi juré, a disparu. Qu'il se trouve à l'école de magie de Watford ne change pas grand-chose. Simon n'a rien, mais vraiment rien de l'Élu. Et pourtant, il faut avancer, car la vie continue...
Pour trouver sa place dans le monde réel, Cath pourra-t-elle toujours compter sur Simon Snow ?
Cath est fan de la série Simon Snow, comme le reste du monde. Sauf qu’elle ne se contente pas d’endosser le costume de son héros favori à chaque avant-première, elle va jusqu’à écrire la suite des aventures du jeune mage, et publie ses histoires sur un site où sa fanfiction est suivie par des milliers de lecteurs.
Tout bascule le jour où Wren, sa sœur jumelle, qui partage sa passion depuis toujours, décide de faire chambre à part sur le campus universitaire. Alors que Wren s’apprête à profiter dignement des joies de la vie étudiante, Cath est soudain projetée dans un univers hostile où elle va devoir se confronter à des gens bien réels : son père, publicitaire qui frise le surmenage, une prof de littérature qui méprise la fanfic, et une coloc un peu revêche, au petit ami omniprésent...
"Une histoire sur le passage à l’âge adulte pleine d’humour et de tendresse, qui dépeint avec brio le parcours d’un écrivain en herbe". - Publishers Weekly
"Drôle et émouvant, ce récit de la vie quotidienne d’une jeune geek est aussi sympathique que réaliste ! Fangirl est une expérience de lecture agréable et marquante, qui ravira les accros de fanfictions." - Tor.com
In Carry On, Simon Snow and his friends realized that everything they thought they understood about the world might be wrong. And in Wayward Son, they wondered whether everything they understood about themselves might be wrong.
In Any Way the Wind Blows, Simon and Baz and Penelope and Agatha have to decide how to move forward.
For Simon, that means deciding whether he still wants to be part of the World of Mages -- and if he doesn't, what does that mean for his relationship with Baz? Meanwhile Baz is bouncing between two family crises and not finding any time to talk to anyone about his newfound vampire knowledge. Penelope would love to help, but she's smuggled an American Normal into London, and now she isn't sure what to do with him. And Agatha? Well, Agatha Wellbelove has had enough.
Any Way the Wind Blows takes the gang back to England, back to Watford, and back to their families for their longest and most emotionally wrenching adventure yet.
This book is a finale. It tells secrets and answers questions and lays ghosts to rest.
Carry On was conceived as a book about Chosen One stories; Any Way the Wind Blows is an ending about endings. About catharsis and closure, and how we choose to move on from the traumas and triumphs that try to define us.
Based on the characters Simon and Baz who featured in Rainbow Rowell's bestselling Fangirl, Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story – but far, far more monsters.
Simon Snow just wants to relax and savour his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he'll be safe. Simon can't even enjoy the fact that his room-mate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can't stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you're the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savour anything.
'Come for the make-outs and stay for the magic' - The Atlantic
1986. Lorsque Eleanor, nouvelle au lycée, trop rousse, trop ronde, s'installe à côté de lui dans le bus scolaire, Park, garçon solitaire et secret, l'ignore poliment. Pourtant, peu à peu, les deux lycéens se rapprochent, liés par leur amour des comics et des Smiths... Et qu'importe si tout le monde au lycée harcèle Eleanor et si sa vie chez elle est un véritable enfer, Park est prêt à tout pour la sortir de là.
Le coup de foudre est possible, même avant le premier regard !
1999. Lincoln, gentil geek aux faux airs d’Harrison Ford, travaille dans une entreprise où son rôle consiste à contrôler les mails des employés. C’est ainsi qu’il parcourt les échanges de Jennifer et de Beth, deux copines aussi drôles et imprévisibles qu’attachantes.
Sans même l’avoir vue, Lincoln va tomber amoureux de Beth.
Mais comment lui déclarer sa flamme sans passer pour un fou ? Surtout que la jeune femme semble avoir un faible pour un « inconnu » qui travaille dans le même immeuble...
« Un savant mélange de romance et d’humour... Le premier livre de Rainbow Rowell saura vous charmer. » - Chicago Tribune
« Romantique, hilarant et... attachant ! Un vrai bonheur ! » - Heat
'Reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love, but what it's like to be young and in love with a book' John Green, author of The Fault in our Stars
Eleanor is the new girl in town, and she's never felt more alone. All mismatched clothes, mad red hair and chaotic home life, she couldn't stick out more if she tried.
Then she takes the seat on the bus next to Park. Quiet, careful and - in Eleanor's eyes - impossibly cool, Park's worked out that flying under the radar is the best way to get by.
Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall in love. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you're 16, and you have nothing and everything to lose.
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor & Park is funny, sad, shocking and true - an exquisite nostalgia trip for anyone who has never forgotten their first love.
Wayward Son is the stunning YA novel by the bestselling author of Fangirl and Carry On, Rainbow Rowell. With all of her signature wit and heart, this is Rainbow at her absolute best. This edition includes two beautiful illustrations.
The story is supposed to be over.
Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after . . .
So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?
What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light . . .
That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West. They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place . . .
With Wayward Son, the sequel to Carry On, Rainbow Rowell has written a book for everyone who ever wondered what happened to the Chosen One after he saved the day. And a book for everyone who was ever more curious about the second kiss than the first.
Come on, Simon Snow. Your hero’s journey might be over – but your life has just begun.
At first their emails offer a welcome diversion, but as Lincoln unwittingly becomes drawn into their lives, the more he reads, the more he finds himself falling for one of them. By the time Lincoln realizes just how head-over-heels he really is, it's way too late to introduce himself. What would he say to her? 'Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mails - and also, I think I love you'.
After a series of close encounters, Lincoln decides it's time to muster the courage to follow his heart...and find out whether there really is such a thing as love before first-sight.
A love story by Rainbow Rowell, the New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park.
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 . . .

Bestselling author Rainbow Rowell and Eisner Award–winning artist Faith Erin Hicks have teamed up to create Pumpkinheads: a smart and swoony Rainbow Rowell romance in full colour graphic novel form, about two teens discovering what it means to leave behind a place – and a person – with no regrets.
Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends.
Every autumn, all through high school, they’ve worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world (not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is). They say goodbye every Halloween, and they’re reunited every September.
But this Halloween is different – Josiah and Deja are finally seniors, and this is their last season at the pumpkin patch. Their last shift together. Their last goodbye.
Josiah’s ready to spend the whole night feeling melancholy about it. Deja isn’t ready to let him. She’s got a plan: what if instead of moping, they went out with a bang? They could see all the sights! Taste all the snacks! And Josiah could finally talk to that cute girl he’s been mooning over for three years . . .
What if their last shift was an adventure?
