What began as a fan-fic based on Harry Potter being written by a character in one of her previous novels, Rainbow Rowell asks what would have happened had Harry (Simon) been roommates with Draco (Baz) the entire time and what if they had other feelings for each other behind the animosity? Simon Snow is nobody's idea of a good Chosen One. He's crap at magic. His spell casting is spotty and wild at best. His worst enemy, Baz, has been his roommate since year one and while he makes Simon's life miserable, his mysterious absence in their final year at Watford School of Magicks is making him almost as mental. Is it weird that he misses the guy who might be a vampire and is for sure a pain? Why does he miss him? Does Baz miss Simon, too? Monsters and madness ensue as he tries to solve all of the mysteries AND live up to being the Chosen One, including a monster who wears his face and removes magic from the world, leaving behind magic free spots where magic won't work in its wake. A dark and gorgeous story, filled with adventures, danger, and a few good laughs.
During his last year at Watford School of Magicks, Simon Snow, the Chosen One, faces a magic-eating monster wearing his face, a break-up, and a missing nemesis.
