The Summer I Became A Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

The Summer I Became a Nerd
 
Being a nerd has never been a problem for me.  I read like it’s going out of style, even if not everyone can understand it.  In any case the idea of being a nerd or a geek has never made me feel insecure.  That is not the experience of Madelyne Jean Summers.  After a disastrous costume debacle in middle school, Maddie promises to hide her inner comic book geekiness.  So for the past few years Maddie has owned the title of “The Cheerleader.”   Her friends are popular, her boyfriend is the quarterback and everyone envies her, but what people do not know is that she follows comics with intense fierceness. 
It is the summer before senior year, and Maddie is waiting for issue #400 of her favorite comic book.  Usually she receives her comics through the mail so that no one will know her secret, but the problem this time is that there is a back order on her comic.  Maddie decides she cannot wait until August to read the comic and ventures to the local comic shop in disguise, but what she was not expecting to find there is Logan and for him to recognize her.  Now she is desperate to make sure that Logan does not out her.  With Eric, her boyfriend gone for vacation and a friendship with Logan that is built on her quirky likes, Maddie is in for one weird, nerdy and super crazy summer!
Fun light read! 3/5 stars.  Thanks Net Galley.
