What They Say:

It’s been two years since Dan Garret brought Logan Scott and Maddie Summers together. Or at least, that’s how he looks at it. Since then, he’s gone through a growth spurt that left him as tall and strapping as his father. Joining the basketball team not only makes him miss his beloved LARP games – it’s turned him into the one thing he hates most, popular. He’s also lost Zelda Potts, which is full of all kinds of suck since he can’t seem to ditch the crush he’s had on her for, oh, ever. Being a smart, tuba-playing junior with a “unique” fashion sense, popularity is not in the cards for Zelda. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Look what popularity did to her ex-friend Dan. When the hypocritical jerk epically embarrasses her in front of a gym full of people, she hatches a plan for revenge, but things don’t work out the way she hoped. Instead she starts to see Dan in a different light. And that little crush she had on him back when they were friends? It’s back.

So a few weeks ago I read – and loved – Leah Rae Miller’s book The Summer I Became A Nerd. It was just NERDILIOUS. I have no idea if that’s a word, but it got the nerd in me SO excited. I even bought myself the paperback (for a bargain price, thanks Amazon) and it now sits proudly on my keepers shelf. So I had to read the sequel – I mean it’s about Dan. And I LOVED Dan in The Summer I Became A Nerd.

For a more accurate title, this should have been called Destroying The Nerd. Seriously, why was it not called Destroying The Nerd? Because THAT’S what Zelda’s nefarious plan is – to take Dan down, because he’s become the opposite of a nerd, he’s not the king of the school, much, much different to when we knew him (long live nerd Dan, RIP.) But this is actually really cute, because while Zelda plans total domination, that’s not exactly how it plans out, and it’s kinda cute to see Zelda and Dan spar with each other, because they clearly have feelings there. They clearly want to kiss each other, and marry each other, and all that good stuff. #JustSaying

Leah Rae Miller is such a good storyteller, she really gets into the heads of her characters and I just plain adored Zelda and Dan, they were both just so cute! And to see Logan and Maddie again just made me ridiculously happy, because they’re the best couple ever. I genuinely loved Romancing The Nerd. It was so cute, and the sparks were FLYING, despite both Zelda and Dan trying to deny them. Silly, silly humans. I’m so excited for what Leah writes next because I just devour her books, they’re that good.
