Title: Jessica the Nerd
Tagline: Is Jessica turning her back on popularity?
Summary: Jessica Wakefield is humiliated when she finds out she’s been accepted into a special program called SOAR!, for gifted math and science students. Along with her twin sister, Elizabeth, Jessica must go to special science classes every day with some of the biggest nerds at Sweet Valley Middle School.
Then a strange thing happens Jessica discovers that she actually likes SOAR! But Jessica’s friends in the Unicorn Club aren’t happy about her new interests. They tell Jessica she must choose: SOAR! or the Unicorns!
I hate it when the word ‘Nerd’ is weaponised.
Let’s look at the cover. FUCKING HELL, IT’S RICK MORANIS!
Four nerdy boys gathered around Jessica in a sinister, vaguely inappropriate way. I’ve seen videos like this on the internet.
And that ginger kid, what the actual fuck?! BEGONE YOU SOULLESS DEMON!
[Dove: I love this book. I’ve been looking forward to it for quite awhile now. Not as much as Poor Lila! but that book is pure magic.]
