Review - "The Summer I Became a Nerd"

"The Summer I Became a Nerd" (Nerd #1) by Leah Rae Miller 

On the outside, seventeen-year-old Madelyne Summers looks like your typical blond cheerleader—perky, popular, and dating the star quarterback. But inside, Maddie spends more time agonizing over what will happen in the next issue of her favorite comic book than planning pep rallies with her squad. That she’s a nerd hiding in a popular girl's body isn’t just unknown, it's anti-known. And she needs to keep it that way.

Summer is the only time Maddie lets her real self out to play, but when she slips up and the adorkable guy behind the local comic shop’s counter uncovers her secret, she’s busted. Before she can shake a pom-pom, Maddie’s whisked into Logan’s world of comic conventions, live-action role-playing, and first-person-shooter video games. And she loves it. But the more she denies who she really is, the deeper her lies become…and the more she risks losing Logan forever.

Reasons why you should write down what you wanna say about a book if you are not planning on writing a review right away: you forget everything. The only thing I can still remember is, that I liked "The Summer I Became a Nerd" very much. So I'm gonna try and tax my brain ... yeah. 
Maddie Summers is a seventeen-year-old girl, who after an embarrassing event during her childhood, decides to hide her love for all things geeky (because being geeky is a tabu?). She fears all her friends will mock her for liking comics, she'll lose her popularity status and her boyfriend will break it off. 
Only when she's alone, does she let herself be just ... herself. And when she's around Logan, who works at the local comic shop. 
The book is fairly easy to read - you know it's one of those books that you can finish in like two hours. You don't get too invested with the story or the characters and after finishing, you can just carry on with your life (but still remember the book as being great). I gave it 5 stars because I love light and quirky writing and characters, you know something easy from time to time. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to read something simple without being too trivial.
