Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
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.
I flippin' LOVED this book. And I'm not alone (that best-seller thing.) If you liked Harry Potter, if you wanted to see more GAY content and characters in Harry Potter, if you wished Dumbledore had been out about being gay inside the seven Harry Potter books... Read "Carry On."
