The Summer I Became A Nerd by Leah Rae Miller Blog Tour Stop

The Summer I Became a Nerd
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 have been waiting to read The Summer I Became A Nerd for what feels like forever. Ever since I first heard about it, I've been so excited to read it.The premise was so amazing, and I ended up loving it just as much as I hoped to. It has an adorkable romance and a really sweet story! 

The Summer I Became A Nerd is about a girl named Maddie who hides her love of comic books from her friends. Over the summer, when she meets a very cute guy who loves comic books just as much as she does, she gets sucked into the world of comic books.

My favorite part of the book was probably the romance between Logan and Maddie. Logan was a cute, fun guy who I found very realistic. He definitely wasn’t perfect, but he still was a great person and it was so sweet how much he liked Maddie. I liked Maddie, too, although there was definitely times I did not like her actions. The traitI really appreciated, though, is that she realized when she was doing something wrong. She had a conscience, and ended up doing her best to fix any mistakes she made.

The plot was entertaining, and although I feel like the comic book allusions got to be a bit much for someone like me, who doesn’t read comic books, I’m sure any comic book lover would adore that part of the book. The main focus of The Summer I Became A Nerd was how Maddie grew as a person over the course of the story. The ending was perfect for the book and I read the entire book in one sitting.

The Summer I Became A Nerd is the perfect summer read, with a likable main character and a super cute romance. I’d give it 4 out of 5 flowers :)
