Waiting on Wednesday: The Summer I Became A Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
The Summer I Became A Nerd by Leah Rae Miller.
Publication Date: May 7th 2013.


The Summer I Became A Nerd -
Entangled Teen
On the outside, seventeen-year-old Madelyne Summers looks like your typical blond cheerleader—perky, popular, and dating the star quarterback. But inside, Maddie spends more time agonizing over what will happen in the next issue of her favorite comic book than planning pep rallies with her squad. That she’s a nerd hiding in a popular girl's body isn’t just unknown, it's anti-known. And she needs to keep it that way.

Summer is the only time Maddie lets her real self out to play, but when she slips up and the adorkable guy behind the local comic shop’s counter uncovers her secret, she’s busted. Before she can shake a pom-pom, Maddie’s whisked into Logan’s world of comic conventions, live-action role-playing, and first-person-shooter video games. And she loves it. But the more she denies who she really is, the deeper her lies become…and the more she risks losing Logan forever.
Synopsis from goodreads.com.

It should be obvious, why I'm waiting for this book's release: it sounds extremely funny! My own nerd-tendencies lie with Marvel heroes (particularly the Marvel 1602 ones) and I am looking forward to (in-)direct references to video games and comic books. :) But I gather it must be very hard for Maddie to reconcile the cheerleader persona with the comic book loving girl - especially, when there's so much at stake as the love of one certain "adorkable" guy named Logan. How will she attempt to keep both her worlds separate and, failing that, what comes out of it in the end?

Do you have favourite comic or video game heroes as well? Tell us in the comments with your Waiting on Wednesday choice!

Hi, Diana!

Thanks for commenting on my WOW!

I think your choice is totally cute, as well as funny! I definitely want to read it!! I'm a nerd, but not about comic books. I'm a Trekkie!! Yup, I LOVE Mr. Spock!! I also LOVE Edward Cullen!! My "nerdiness" is related to fantasy, science fiction, paranormal romance, and urban fantasy. However, I used to be a HUGE Superman fan years ago. Guess I gotta get into heroes like the X-Men... Anyhow, thanks for featuring this book, which I know will ADORE my TBR pile!! :)
