This word will bring to your mind the done-to-death stereotype: Ugly teeth, full-rimmed thick glasses, out-of-fashion clothes and weird hair. And talks a lot about a particular book / series of books.
Or in short, me.
If you believed that all geeks are tech junkies, this definition by the Cambridge Dictionary would surprise you.
Now, lemme see. The first one is perfectly true in my case.
Let me justify the second one: Very interested in Harry Potter, psychology, graphology, and YA fiction.
Now that I have proved to you that I’m a textbook geek, let me introduce you to a book about geeks. A book for geeks. A book that geeks will love.
The story goes like this: Graham Posner is a true blue geek, and so is his best friend, Roxy (you know it’s fiction when that happens. I’m a geek, and still haven’t found a geek best friend who can manage to stay with me all these 18 years)
Both of them happen to be Potterheads (brownie points), and that’s what brings them together as friends (double brownie points, with mint essence!).
Now, Graham has moved on from the best-friend stage, and has fallen in luuuvvvvv with Roxy. Classic story, right?
But here’s how Sarvenaz Tash adds magic to the book: the entire story is set in the backdrop of the New York Comic Con, a geek’s paradise. A few subplots here and there, and a major distraction where both Graham and Roxy find new loves (I’d love to call them summer loves, but that will ruin the suspense of the story for you. Oops!)
How do you think this done-to-death love story will end? Will Graham and Roxy sing love ballads, and start creating matching Patronuses? Or will they start fighting with each other like Won-won and Lav-lav?
I assure you this is one YA fiction book you will thoroughly enjoy. It’s a light-hearted read, with powerfully packed messages. It’s also a perfect gift for a teenager, or your Valentine, if you want to give a not-so-subtle hint about your true feelings.
