Summary
A collection of twenty-nine short stories about geeks
Summary
Whether they're obsessing over pop culture, vying for the best grades, or hunching over a computer screen, nerds are passionate about their interests -- sometimes for better and other times for worse. Celebrate all things nerdy with this sometimes funny, sometimes thought-provoking collection of short stories from an array of bestselling YA authors (and probable nerds themselves), including John Green, M.T. Anderson, Garth Nix, and Cassandra Clare. -- Description by Rebecca Honeycutt
