Rainbow Rowell
“Extroverts were nothing if not dependable.”
“And the thing about nerd culture being mainstream culture now means that there's no place to just be a nerd among other nerds - without being reminded that you're the nerd.” “How could you possibly have a dark secret involving the Star Wars prequels? Are you responsible for Jar Jar Binks?”
Ik had al 2 boeken gelezen van Rainbow Rowell, en ook dit kleine boekje zag ik staan. Ik hou totaal niet van Star Wars, maar de manier waarop zij schrijft, spreekt mij wel aan. Dus toch dit boekje meegenomen. En daar heb ik geen spijt van! Het verhaal verliep vlot, en ook al werden er wat Star Wars referenties gemaakt, het gaat voornamelijk over vriendschap en de nerd zijn, terwijl anderen misschien wel meer nerd zijn. Ik heb weer genoten van dit prachtige kleine boekje.

'Everybody likes everything these days. The whole world is a nerd.'
'Are you mad because other people like Star Wars? Are you mad because people like me like Star Wars?'

If you broke Elena's heart, Star Wars would spill out. So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she's expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does. What she's not expecting is to be last in a line of only three people; to have to pee into a collectible Star Wars soda cup behind a dumpster or to meet that unlikely someone who just might truly understand the way she feels. Kindred Spirits is an engaging short story by Rainbow Rowell, author of the bestselling Eleanor & Park, Fangirl and Carry On, and is part of a handful of selected short reads specially produced for World Book Day.
