Dan Garrett has become exactly what he hates—popular. Until recently, he was just another live-action role-playing nerd on the lowest rung of the social ladder. Cue a massive growth spurt and an uncanny skill at taking three-point shots in basketball and voilà…Mr. Popular. It’s definitely weird.
And the biggest drawback? Going from high school zero to basketball hero cost Dan the secret girl of his dorky dreams.
A band geek with an eclectic fashion sense, Zelda Potts’s “coolness” stat is about minus forty-two. Dan turning his back on her and the rest of nerd-dom was brutal enough, but when he humiliates her at school, Zelda decides it’s time for a little revenge—dork style. Never mind that she used to have a crush on him. Never mind that her plan could backfire big time.
It’s time to roll the dice…and hope like freakin’ hell she doesn’t lose her heart in the process.
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange of a review. No compensation in any form was received for the review of this book.
It’s actually my first time to read a novel from Leah Rae Miller but I’ve been told that she writes really cute and funny romances and I wasn’t disappointed! This book is just the right one I’m looking for.
This is about Dan and Zelda, who used to be close friends, until Dan became popular. After an accident, which humiliated Zelda, she planned on taking a little revenge on him.
“It feels like one of those moments when you know you’re screwing up, but you still move forward.”
People who have read The Summer I Became A Nerd would have already met Dan and Zelda, but since I haven’t read it, I have no idea about their character backgrounds. Anyhow, I still found them very interesting, not to mention they’re both dorks which I definitely adore!
The plot may seem a little predictable but it didn’t take away the thrill of reading the story. It’s a treat to see the relationship between Dan and Zelda unfold and grow. Their banters are amusing and sweet. The depiction of friendships between them and the other characters is really great and strong.
Overall, it’s a sweet read, perfect for those in need of a cute romance with funny banters and strong friendship bonds. I definitely recommend this book!
