‘Everybody likes everything these days. The whole world is a nerd.’
‘Are you mad because other people like Star Wars? Are you mad because people like me like Star Wars?’
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.
I give this short story a five out of five. It was so good and funny. I loved reading it and wish that there was a way it could be made into a novel. I just wanted more. I would love to learn more about Elena. I would recommend this short story to anyone that has or hasn’t read any of Rainbow Rowell’s books yet.
