RAINBOW ROWELL lives in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband and two sons. She's also the author of Landline, Fangirl, Eleanor & Park, and Attachments.
Rowell imbues her magic with awe and spectacle. It's a powerful, politically minded allegory about sexual, ethnic and class identity - with a heady shot of teenage lust. --New York Times Book Review 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
