The Summer I Became a Nerd

The Summer I Became a Nerd - Leah Rae Miller This book was so ADORKABLE!! I received this book from the publisher. They asked me to read for the praise page and as I had been dying to read this book I of course said yes!!! Maddie is a typical cheerleader who is dating the quarterback. But deep down she is really a comic book nerd and is hiding that side of herself from everyone. She really wants to keep it that way but when the next issue of her favorite comic book is out she finds herself in disguise at the local comic book store. This is where she meets Logan who works there at his families shop. He is a major nerd who loves comic books and live action role playing. He uncovers Maddie's secret and sweeps her up into his world. Logan is the only one who knows her secret and she would like to keep it that way. Can Logan help her to be comfortable with who she really is? Or will she lose him because she is embarrassed?I loved Maddie's story. It was so sweet and something that teens go through everyday. Unable to be themselves for fear of being teased and ridiculed. I loved both main characters and especially loved Logan's best friend Dan. There were also major laugh out loud moments. You don't have to be a lover of comic books and all that goes into that world to enjoy The Summer I Became a Nerd. This is a book about being true to yourself and not caring what others think. I think it has a great message for teens and it also helped that Logan was so swoon-worthy. He reminded me of a boyfriend I had in high school who loved comic books. I found myself at the comic book store every weekend and even found myself enjoying it. Thanks Leah for the blast from the past! It is a truly adorkable read about being comfortable in your own skin and with who you are. Get ready to bring out your inner nerd!
