Rainbow Rowell's collection of two short stories, lovingly illustrated by Simini Blocker. I say "lovingly" because from the care given to the images, you can tell the illustrator cares just as much about the characters as the author. Like all of Rainbow Rowell's writing, these stories are heartwarming and delicate, but still realistic and your emotions will never be the same. If anything, I wanted more time with the characters!!

Short and fun. I definitely laughed a couple of times while reading Rainbow Rowell's new book, Almost Midnight. These two short stories are a quick read and I especially loved Kindred Spirits as it's about Star Wars.
