Romancing the Nerd
Dan and Zelda used to be close friends, until circumstances drove them apart. Dan went through a growth spurt and his dad forced him to try out for basketball, and somehow he quickly became part of the popular crowd–despite his efforts to drive them away. Zelda, meanwhile, remains quite the nerd: band geek, comic book lover, live-action-role-player. And she’s got a grudge against Dan for a few things he once did, things that just maybe she doesn’t know the full story behind. The thing is, deep down the two are really perfectly suited for one another, and they’re starting to realize it.
In Romancing the Nerd author Leah Rae Miller takes us back to the town of her previous novel and gets us better acquainted with some new characters. Dan is struggling under his dad’s strict rules, and finds solace in his online friendship with the incognita Zelda. She wants revenge for perceived slights, but she soon finds herself softening as she realizes Dan hasn’t actually changed at all. This is a cute romance novel for young adults, especially those who love some of the nerdier things in life.
