How exciting to be a part of my friend Leah’s book cover reveal! She’s been tweeting about this non-stop for at least as long as I’ve known her. The cover! The cover! Oh the magical cover! I remember Jessica Souders telling me that when she got her cover she just printed it off, wrapped it around a donor book, set it there in front of her for a week and did nothing but stare at it. I can’t imagine Leah doing anything differently, or myself for that matter.
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.
In addition to THE SUMMER I BECAME A NERD cover reveal, her team will be hosting a Marked-to-Read contest on Goodreads in the weeks leading up to THE SUMMER I BECAME A NERD’s release on May 7, 2013. Watch Leah’s site, links below, for details on how to submit/enter to win.
I really think Leah’s book sounds awesome and I wish her the absolute best. I’ve already pre-ordered a copy and if it sounds like a good read to you, or you know someone who would love to have it I highly recommend you get onto those pre-order links below and reserve yourself a copy!
