Dan Garrett has become exactly what he hates—popular. Until recently, he was just another live-action role-playing (LARP) geek on the lowest run of the social ladder. Cue a massive growth spurt and an uncanny skill at taking three-point shots in basketball and voila…Mr. Popular. It’s definitely weird.
And the biggest drawback? Going from high school zero to basketball hero cost Dan the secret girl-of-his-dorky dreams.
A tuba-playing nerd with an eclectic fashion sense, Zelda Potts’s “Coolness” stat is about minus forty-two. Dan turning his back on her and the rest of nerd-dom was brutal enough, but when he humiliates her at school, Zelda decides it’s time for a little revenge—dork style. Nevermind that she used to have a crush on him. Nevermind that her plan could backfire big time.
It’s time to roll the dice…and hope like freakin’ hell she doesn’t lose her heart in the process.
I just found out about this book and it comes out next week but I’m excitedly waiting for it! I read The Summer I Became a Nerd years ago and have been waiting for Leah Rae Miller to come out with something else since and I cannot believe I only found out about this so recently! I feel like a complete failure!! But now I know and now I’m waiting. If you want to read a cute YA romance about figuring out who you are and learning to embrace your nerdy side, I definitely recommend The Summer I Became a Nerd. And still think about that book and how cute it was even years later. I’m looking forward to this new book and hoping it’ll be another cute romance I can read while sitting in the sun, sipping iced coffee, and relaxing. It sounds absolutely perfect.
What are you waiting on this week?
