Booklist Editors' Choice 2015 - Youth!
Named a Best Book of 2015 by Time Magazine, School Library Journal, Barnes & Noble, NPR, PopSugar, The Millions, and The News & Observer!
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 starts 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 ghost story, a love story and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story - but far, far more monsters.

Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who's ever been...
It's a brilliantly addictive, genuinely romantic story about teenagers who can't be neatly sorted into houses, coping with stress and loss and the confusion of just trying to be who they are. It's as if Rowell turned the Harry Potter books inside out, and is showing us the marvelous, subversive stuffing inside. --Time Magazine
Full of heart and humor, this fantastical tale is a worthy addition to the wizarding-school genre. --People Magazine
Carry On is the fantasy book I didn't know I'd been waiting for for years...Rowell's mystery, magic, and political intrigue is the sexiest love story I've read in a long time. --Julie Beck, for The Atlantic
The funny, wised-up dialogue, the tumultuous, sweet, and sexy love story-- is grade-A Rowell...almost impossible to put down. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Stock up on copies--this one begs to be reread. --Booklist (starred review)
With rock-solid worldbuilding, a sweet and believable romance subplot, and satisfying ending, Carry On is a monumentally enjoyable reading experience. Hand this to fans of Rowell, Harry Potter, love stories, and magic. --School Library Journal (starred review)
Carry On is a triumph. Thrilling and sexy, funny and shocking, deeply moving and very, very magical. Trust me, you have never, ever seen a wizard school like this. --Lev Grossman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Magicians trilogy
