"Waiting On" Wednesday #1: The Summer I Became a Nerd


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that features upcoming releases that we can't wait to get our hands on.


This is my first time participating in Waiting On Wednesday so I'm pretty stoked about it. I can't link this to Jill's weekly post yet because it's not Wednesday on the other side of the globe yet so I'm a little bit early. But I'll link it up to hers as soon as she posts it. 

For my first WOW, I'm waiting on...

Title: The Summer I Became a Nerd
Author: Leah Rae Miller
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Expected Publication: May 7, 2013

Synopsis: 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

I'm pretty excited about this simply because nerds will always have a special place in my heart. Yeah, it's that simple. I always enjoy books with nerdy/dorky/adorkable protagonists probably because I can relate to them. 

How about you... what book are you waiting on? :-)
