    Description

    After a long, lonely year, two people stumble toward each other in this holiday short story by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park and Fangirl.

    Social distancing came easily to Reagan. Maybe a little too easily. She’s always liked people better from afar. But Reagan doesn’t want her grandpa to be alone for Christmas this year - he’s already spent too much time on his own in 2020. So she heads back to her hometown with a dish of holiday Jell-O salad, hoping they can have a little normalcy. Hoping it will be safe...

    She isn’t expecting to run into the boy next door. Mason is all grown up now. He’s considerate. He’s funny. He doesn’t mind how prickly Reagan is - he maybe even likes it. And it makes Reagan feel like her defenses are falling. She needs her defenses, doesn’t she? In a time when six feet is close enough, how long can they keep their distance?

    “Narrator Rebecca Lowman captures common feelings of uncertainty and dread in her narration of Rowell's pandemic romance, set in Nebraska. Lowman's husky, drawn-out voice creates a memorable portrayal of Reagan (from Rowell's FANGIRL).... Lowman faithfully reproduces Reagan's pugnacious, resentful thoughts about her pandemic-ignoring extended family and her interactions with her grandfather's neighbor, Mason, who turns out to be Reagan's high school acquaintance.... Lowman captures Rowell's tone and spotlights the surreal encounter that jumpstarts Reagan and Mason's romance.” (AudioFile Magazine)

    I needed more!

    Unfortunately, this short story did nothing for me. The main character Regan you might remember from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. She was Cath’s roommate in college. She’s sarcastic, cynical and often mean. She hasn’t changed much. In If The Fates Allow it’s Christmas 2020 and Regan is going to visit her grandpa after quarantining for 2 weeks. Yes, this is a COVID romance short story.
    Lots of COVID talk and lots of cussing. Very little actual romance. I feel like if anything this is a good jumping off point for a full-length novel.

    Basically, Regan talks to Mason, the neighbor next door to her grandpa who apparently remembers Regan from high school, but she doesn’t remember him at all. They talk about COVID and how crazy it is and then things happen, then they don’t see each other until the next Christmas (2021). There’s a kiss, there’s Jell-O and then it’s over. I needed more!

    Sassy, Snarky Heroine and the Guy Next Door

    At first I wasn't sure about the narration, but I quickly came to realize the narrator's voice was perfect. The story held my interest from the very beginning. A great short story.

    it's reagan

    if yall loved fangirl, then this is a pleasant surprise. didn't expect to get a life update on Raegan from fangirl, but man am I happy I did. This short was something I didn't know I needed until I had it. I wish it was longer. I loved that it gave an update on Levi too. I wanted to hear a bit more about Mason and his story. ughhh, I just don't want it to end!

    Rainbow Rowell is amazing as always!

    It is really great to get a story from Reagan's perspective! I wish there was a mention of Cath but other than that I loved it!

    Going to read instead of listening

    I had to stop 10 minutes in. The reader is using this weird debauched slurring voice. She sounds drunk or like she has a concussion. Okay

    Obviously that’s not true, it’s an artistic choice she’s making, but I hate it and it’s totally distracting. Will read ebook instead.

    Don't need to hear more COVID sorrows...

    To be honest I couldn't make it to the end of the first chapter .
