The Summer I Became a Nerd-- Cover Reveal!

Nov 30, 2012

Today is the cover reveal for my good friend Leah Miller and her book, The Summer I Became a Nerd!
I totally love this cover.



"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."

Born and raised in northern Louisiana, Leah Rae Miller still lives there on a windy hill with her husband and kids. She loves comic books, lava lamps, fuzzy socks, and Cherry Coke. She spends most of her days reading things she likes and writing things she hopes other people will like.

This is exactly the kind of contemporary YA I love, and I can't wait to read it! It releases May 7, 2013. You can pre-order at Amazon and BN, or add to your Goodreads list! And keep an eye on Leah's blog, because there will be a Goodreads contest as launch nears.

In Healthy Writer's Club news...all is not going according to plan. Illness, vacations, and Baby Noodles' opinion that sleep is for wimps mean I'm way behind on my half-marathon training schedule. I'm likely going to have to go for a race in the fall. Which is okay. As long as I can get running again-- all I did this week was half an hour of P90X. Someone tell this baby to SLEEP, please!

So, my friends, what do you think of Leah's cover? Are you as excited for the book as I am?

Someone stole my comment! But I like the premise of the book too. So refreshingly original to go backwards- popular to nerdy!
Sorry the baby isn't sleeping- I had one of those too!

I must profess that the shoes are, um, well...?

Cover - Very colorful and fits the story.

My 5 and a half month old has never been a GREAT sleeper, but lately she has been waking up even more. Yay for zombie moms! Just keep telling yourself one day you will wake up. (And then you'll have another and it will start all over again. Darn cute babies.)
