Summary
Twenty-nine short stories by some of the bestselling and most promising players in young adult literature
Summary
Whether they're obsessing over pop culture, vying for the best grades, or hunching over a computer screen, nerds are passionate about their interests -- sometimes for better and other times for worse. Celebrate all things nerdy with this sometimes funny, sometimes thought-provoking collection of short stories from an array of bestselling YA authors (and probable nerds themselves), including John Green, M.T. Anderson, Garth Nix, and Cassandra Clare. -- Description by Rebecca Honeycutt
