Simon Snow is back and he's coming to America!

The story is supposed to be over.

Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after…

So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?

What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light.

That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West. They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place.

With Wayward Son, Rainbow Rowell has written a book for everyone who ever wondered what happened to the Chosen One after he saved the day. And a book for everyone who was ever more curious about the second kiss than the first. It’s another helping of sour cherry scones with an absolutely decadent amount of butter.

Come on, Simon Snow. Your hero’s journey might be over – but your life has just begun.

My only complaint is that the book was too short! I could read a million pages of these characters and it wouldn't be enough!

say this as a fan of Season 6, as not everyone is, this book was extremely Buffy Season 6 energy. What happens after you've saved the world? After you reached the conclusion to your journey? And ended on such a high note? Life continues and it is hard. This book was thrilling and fun and sad and heartbreaking. It asks a lot of tough and interesting questions. I honestly don't know what else to say without spoiling the book but if you read Carry On, this is a must read. And if you haven't, you absolutely should.

I loved revisiting with the characters that I'd come to enjoy from Carry On. This story picks up almost right where the first left off. They visit America in search of a friend who they haven't heard back from and are afraid she might be in trouble. Being American it was funny to see how they saw foreign soil, also this is a time of vampires etc. which makes things different than how they are now. I liked the addition of Sheppard and enjoyed their usual banter with one another. Simon still feels like such a lost soul and I hope that he will somehow regain his powers to some extent at some point. Looking forward to the next installment in this series!

This is a solid, middle book that demonstrates Rowell's mastery of the Chosen One narratives she interrogates with this, now, series. Am I happy with where we picked up and left off? No. Does it feel emotionally honest? Yes. Additionally, her contrast in magical systems between Britain and America is clever while having something to say. And, I have never enjoyed Agatha more. Middle books are not usually my favorite. I like to be enticed by a world and I like resolution. This doesn't give resolution, but it gives a real exploration of a bunch of teenagers, who are now young adults, who prepared their entire lives for a war. And now they have to figure out how to live in the aftermath. I respect Rowell a whole heck of a lot of writing this book, and I can't wait for the conclusion.
