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

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

Expected release date: May 7, 2013

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 mean, what can I really say about this one?  I just think it sounds really cute.  It’s going to be perfect summer fluff reading.  I think we all know how this one will end, and most of us can probably predict how it will get there.  This kind of book isn’t about the surprises or even really the journey, it’s about pure escapism.  And sometimes that’s okay.  I can’t wait to read this one, especially if it’s done well.  Totally fun, and something I’m really looking forward to (especially as I’m looking for every possible distraction from doing finals work for grad school right now).

What are you waiting on this week?
