Sinopsis/Synopsis:

Cath dan Wren—saudari kembarnya—adalah penggemar Simon Snow. Oke, seluruh dunia adalah penggemar Simon Snow, novel berseri tentang dunia penyihir itu. Namun, Cath bukan sekadar fan. Simon Snow adalah hidupnya!

Cath bahkan menulis fanfiksi tentang Simon Snow menggunakan nama pena Magicath di Internet, dan ia terkenal! Semua orang menanti-nantikan fanfiksi Cath.

Semuanya terasa indah bagi Cath, sampai ia menginjakkan kaki ke universitas. Tiba-tiba saja, Wren tidak mau tahu lagi tentang Simon Snow, bahkan tak ingin menjadi teman sekamarnya! Dicampakkan Wren, dunia Cath jadi jungkir balik. Sendirian, ia harus menghadapi teman sekamar eksentrik yang selalu membawa pacarnya ke kamar, teman sekelas yang mengusik hatinya, juga profesor Penulisan Fiksi yang menganggap fanfiksi adalah tanda akhir zaman.

Seolah dunianya belum cukup terguncang, Cath juga masih harus mengkhawatirkan kondisi psikis ayahnya yang labil. Sekarang, pertanyaan buat Cath adalah: mampukah ia menghadapi semua ini?

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…

But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate 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.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this?

Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

The Girl on Paper by Guillaume Musso Review

Gadis itu terjatuh dari dalam buku.

Hanya beberapa bulan yang lalu, Tom Boyd adalah seorang penulis miliarder yang tinggal di Los Angeles dan jatuh cinta pada seorang pianis ternama bernama Aurore. Namun, setelah putusnya hubungan mereka yang terekspos secara publik, Tom menutup dirinya, menderita writer’s block parah, dan tenggelam dalam alkohol dan obat terlarang.

Suatu malam, seorang gadis asing yang cantik muncul di teras rumah Tom. Dia mengaku sebagai Billie, karakter dalam novelnya, yang terjatuh ke dunia nyata karena kesalahan cetak dalam buku terakhir Tom.

Meskipun cerita itu gila, Tom harus percaya bahwa gadis itu benar-benar Billie. Akhirnya mereka membuat perjanjian. Jika Tom mau menulis novel agar Billie bisa kembali ke dunianya, Billie akan membantu Tom untuk mendapatkan Aurore kembali.

Tidak ada ruginya, kan? Iya, kan?

What happens when fantasy is the only thing that seems real? Just a few months ago, Tom Boyd was a multi-million-selling author living in LA, in love with a world-famous pianist. But after a very public break-up he’s shut himself away, suffering from total writer’s block, with only drink and drugs for company. One night, a beautiful, naked stranger appears in Tom’s house. She claims to be Billie, a character from his novels, who has fallen into the real world because of a printer’s error in his latest book. Crazy as her story sounds, Tom comes to see that this must be the real Billie. And she wants to strike a deal with him: if he writes his next novel she can go back to the world of fiction; in return she will help him win back his beloved Aurore. What does he have to lose? Guillaume Musso’s latest romantic adventure is a story of friendship, love and the special place that books have in our lives.
