    My new favourite book!

    If I could give this book six stars, I would! I don't necessarily consider myself a "geek" girl, but I still loved this story. It's about a TV show called Starfield, a girl named Elle and a boy named Darien. Elle lives and works in Charleston, where she operates The Magic Pumpkin, a vegan food truck, with her friend Sage. Work has kind of become her escape from her home life, where her stepmother and stepsisters make her life miserable. But she also has Starfield. She is obsessed with the show, and it brings back memories of when her parents were alive because all three of them loved the show. Elle sees the characters as her friends, and she isn't happy when she finds out that they're doing a remake. Especially when she learns that Darien Freeman, a famous actor, will be playing Prince Carmindor, the main character. She thinks that David Singh, the original Carmindor, did a much better job than Darien ever will. On her blog, Rebelgunner, she publicly rants about why Darien isn't right for the role, and why he's selfish and pompous. Darien, however, has his own problems. His best friend is his assistant, Gail, and his manager, Mark, used to be his father, but he's so selfish, commanding and money-hungry that Darien can't see the father underneath all that. He has so many crazy fans that he has to have a bodyguard, Lonny. And on top of all of that, his father is trying to make him date Jessica Stone, the actress who plays Princess Amara- Prince Carmindor's main love interest in Starfield. But neither of them are interested in dating anywhere other than onset, and Darien...has someone else in mind. One day Elle gets a text from an unknown number about something she doesn't know. The sender of the text realizes this quickly, but they keep talking and realize that they have become friends. They don't know anything about each other, just that they're friends. She thinks of the other person as Carmindor (the name of the prince in Starfield) and she tells him that her name is Elle. When Elle finds out that there will be a Starfield "cosplay contest," she is determined to win. Even if the prize is a meet-and-greet with Darien Freeman, which she really doesn't want but she knows that winning would have made her parents proud. This story also has that kind of perfect happily-ever-after that makes you squirm with delight and feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I read Geekerella while sitting in an armchair by the window in my house, and it was snowing outside. A lot. There are a few plot holes and mistakes in this book, which is NOT a good thing, but the story is so good that it doesn't matter. Just giving a heads-up so you know what to expect. (That doesn't count as a spoiler, does it?) Ashley Poston has done an awesome job making Cinderella into a modern love story and fixing all the dumb and dated things about it. PLS read it. You won't regret it. As soon as I read it, I just HAD to go buy it from Indigo (hope y'all know what that is!) and I think that as soon as YOU read it, YOU will undoubtably find yourself walking, driving or subwaying over to your nearest bookstore (if you don't already own it.) I think that EVERY 11-14 year old, geek or not, should read this book. The story isn't necessarily focused on the love story, but it's about prejudiced people, unlikely friendship, and, like all other YA fiction, love. There's a lot of good themes and messages in it too, and I learned a lot about how they make movies. >:( the face u make when ur waiting for ur hold to come PLEASE READ THIS BOOK. IT IS AMAZING.

    Absolute Perfection

    This book is perfection, I could not put it down. It went everywhere with me so that I could read with any spare moments of time I had. I finally blew off all responsibility for 3 hours to finish it. Fandom references galore, a believable tale, characters you can appreciate even if you can't relate, and most impressive to me of all, an accurate depiction of the heart of being a fan, a geek, a nerd, a cosplayer, a con-goer, all of that. Viva la nerdolution.
