Staff Book Pick of the Week: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

This week's staff pick is Carry On by Rainbow Rowell! Fans of Harry Potter and fans of Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl should check out this book!

It is Simon Snow’s last year at Watford School of Magicks, but he still struggles with controlling his magic. Not only that, his girlfriend broke up with him, the Mage is avoiding him, ghosts are appearing all over the school, and the Humdum– a monster that is causing magic to vanish– is still on the loose. Not only that, his infuriating roommate hasn’t bothered to show up for term and Simon is going crazy trying to figure out why! With plenty of magic, mystery, and romance, Carry On is a great fantasy stand alone for teens and adults alike.
