Carry On

Author: Rainbow Rowell

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books (2015)

SIMON SNOW IS THE WORST CHOSEN ONE WHO’S EVER BEEN CHOSEN That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right. Half the time Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here—it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up. Carry On is a love letter to love stories and the power of words—to every ‘chosen one’ who ever had more on their mind than saving the world . . .
