No, actually now I get to contribute to Off the Shelf and Teen Reviews @ CCPL (I know what you're thinking, I'm not actually a teen, but honestly no one needs to know that... I still look, act and think like one...)
Just to help keep you guys at your regular level of lazy, I'll cut and paste you review of Geektastic into this blog....
Do you like Star Wars? Buffy? Anime? MMORPGs? Duct tape? Comics? Musicals? Zombies?
Are you a Trekker? A loner? A gamer? An awesome secret ninja?
Chances are if you answered yes to more than two of those questions someone somewhere has called you a dork, a geek or even a nerd. It might have been your friends, your mom, even yourself.
To that we say, rock on you Nerd of Über-Epicness, here is a book for you.
In a compilation of short stories, running the gamut from hilarious, to moving and back to just hilarious, interspersed with comic instructions of how to live your life to its full geek potential, self-proclaimed nerds Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci bring together the brightest and the best of today’s Young Adult authors in this book of short stories that embraces the geek within us all. M.T. Anderson, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, John Green, Tracy Lynn, Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Barry Lyga, Wendy Mass, Garth Nix, Scott Westerfield, Lisa Yee, and Sara Zarr all have one thing in common, and it’s more common than you think. If you’re a dork there is a story for you in Geektastic, and if you’re not, well there is still hope that someday you might just see the light…. saber that is.
