Dang. This has been a week where I, once again, had so many funny blog posts in my head, and now it is the end of the week, after school, I am pooped, and I have nothing in my head. So instead of a rip-roaring blog post, I offer you a contest! I have an Advanced Reader Copy of my new novel, Into the Wild Nerd Yonder, which won’t hit stores until fall of this year. Here’s a description:

It's Jessie's sophomore year of high school. A self-professed "mathlete," she isn't sure where she belongs. Her two best friends have transformed themselves into punks and one of them is going after her longtime crush. Her beloved older brother will soon leave for college (and in the meantime has shaved off his mohawk and started dating...the prom Princess!)...

Things are changing fast. Jessie needs new friends. And her quest is a hilarious tour through high school clique-dom, with a surprising stop along the way--the Dungeons and Dragons crowd, who out-nerd everyone. Will hanging out with them make her a nerd, too? And could she really be crushing on a guy with too-short pants and too-white gym shoes?

If you go into the wild nerd yonder, can you ever come back?

Here’s how to enter: make a comment on this post about the travesty that is the Sears Tower becoming the Willis Tower OR just post and say hi. I’ll pick a random poster from a funny hat, and they’ll win the ARC! You have until next Friday to enter. Happy Friday the 13th!

The Sears tower is now the Willis tower? You've got to be kidding.
I am just going to keep calling it the Sears Tower, that's what I grew up with, that's what I am staying with.

For some reason the plot reminds me of the opposite of Freaks and Geeks. When Leslie the main character leaves her mathlete mates to hang with the freaks. Sounds like a awesome book.
