Books I Love: The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

Maddie is a cheerleader, and a closet comic book fan. She hides everything about her love of comic books because she is afraid her friends will find out and stop wanting to hang out with her. Her world begins to change when she goes into the local comic shop to get the last edition of her favorite comic. She meets a cute boy and is slowly sucked into his world of comics, role playing and video games. Along the way Maddie finds herself lying to those that she cares about the most, and she has to learn how to balance both parts of herself.

This was a great read. It was endearing. One of my favorite parts of this book is that most of the judging came from Maddie herself, not her friends or other people. I love books that point out the fact that people don't usually fit into just one mold or the other. It was a fun read. Great for a summer day.

Have you read it? What did you think?
