"As her sophomore year begins, Jess knows she's growing apart from her best friends, Char and Bizza, a situation made much worse when Bizza goes poseur-punk in order to pursue Jess' long-time crush. When Jess, who loves math, sewing, and audiobooks, is invited to play Dungeons and Dragons by class nerd Dottie, she discovers that embracing life as a nerd isn't so bad - especially when there's a cute boy involved who loves role-playing games, too. Author Julie Halpern humourously explores high school cliques without letting her characters be defined by them." April 2013 Teen Scene newsletter

Loved the family relationships. It was nice to see such a close, respectful relationship between a brother and a sister. I liked the theme of having friends that are fun to be with instead of having friends because they are "cool" or "popular." Be aware that the book includes talk about oral sex and a sexually transmitted disease in a matter-of-fact way.

just got through reading this one really fun lil story that I really enjoyed wish that it could have talked more on the girl relationships was a tad disappointed it left you hanging with that. But other wise a lot of fun to read.
Fairly relate able for me since I am a D&D, Fantasy/ ren faire geek myself but can't say I can relate to much of the other life experiences the girl had myself.
