Review: “Kindred Spirits”

Kindrid Spirits - Rainbow Rowell

Kindred Spirits
Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 4/5

“If you broke Elena’s heart, Star Wars would spill out. So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she’s expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does. What she’s not expecting is to be last in a line of only three people; to have to pee into a collectible Star Wars soda cup behind a dumpster or to meet that unlikely someone who just might truly understand the way she feels.” (Goodreads)

Kindred Spirits is straight up adorable!  Essentially a love letter to Star Wars, it is done in true Rainbow Rowell fashion: slightly awkward characters and snappy dialogue.

At just 62 pages, there’s a surprising amount of character development.  I got to know Elena inside and out, but not once did I feel like I was being pelted with character facts; it was gradual and natural.

Even if you aren’t a Star Wars fan, I highly recommend picking Kindred Spirits up – it will only take 20 minutes out of your day and you’ll walk away with cute and fluffy feelings in your heart.
