The significance of the title "Fangirl" is that the main character Cath, is a "fangirl". This is because she is an extremely huge fan of a novel series called, "Simon Snow" (A parallel to the Harry Potter series) by devoting most of her time to writing fanfiction, and owning all the fandom's merchandise. Thus, the title accurately encapsulates the messsage of the text because the title
the protagonist Cath.
I found the title interesting because I find myself a fangirl, seeing as though I am a fan of many book series, television series, and boybands.
an obsessive female fan (usually of movies, comic books, or science fiction).

What is a "Fangirl"?
Personally, I empathize with Cath the most because she is very introverted like myself. Because of this, I know how hard it can be to meet and talk to new people, also make new friends. In addition to this, like I said earlier, I find myself a fangirl like Cath.
Because I empathize and relate to Cath the most, this makes her my favourite character.
The protagonist of the book is Cather, "Cath", Avery. Other main characters include her twin sister Wren Avery, her roomate Reagan, classmate Nick and love-interest Levi. (Cather+Wren=Catherine)
"I'd rather be broken than wasted"
“Just... isn't giving up allowed sometimes? Isn't it okay to say, ‘This really hurts, so I’m going to stop trying’?”
“It sets a dangerous precedent.”
“For avoiding pain?”
“For avoiding life.”
“In new situations, all the trickiest rules are the ones nobody bothers to explain to you. (And the ones you can't Google.)”
“I know what it’s like to be distracted. To seek out distractions. To exhaust yourself doing every other little thing rather than face a blank page”
The main idea of the work is that you must let go eventually. Cath had difficulties in letting go of the time her mother left her family behind and knowing that her sister was not going to be with her every step of the way like she use to when going to college. On top of this, Cath was very reluctant in leaving behind her "Simon Snow" fandom and knowing that the series will end very soon. But eventually she accepts these things and becomes a better person because of that. This relates to my life because like Cath, I need to learn how to move on and accept that things are not permanent.
Themes and motifs that stand out in this novel are the theme of change and transformation. As the novel progresses, you see the changes that occur to Cath. In the beginning, Cath is very shy and secluded but she becomes more and more open towards the new people in her life.
