When BFFs Charlie, Taylor and Jamie go to SupaCon, they know it’s going to be a blast. What they don’t expect is for it to change their lives forever.
Charlie likes to stand out. SupaCon is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star, Reese Ryan. When Alyssa Huntington arrives as a surprise guest, it seems Charlie’s long-time crush on her isn’t as one-sided as she thought.
While Charlie dodges questions about her personal life, Taylor starts asking questions about her own.
Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And there’s one thing in her life she knows will never change: her friendship with Jamie—no matter how much she may secretly want it to. But when she hears about the Queen Firestone SupaFan Contest, she starts to rethink her rules on playing it safe.

Hey all! Long time, no review (remember me? Paige? Yeah, I’m finally back from…well a lot, but that’s a different post).
Queens of Geek was the perfect book I needed to not only get me out of my reading slump, but out of my life slump. It was funny at all the right moments, serious at the next, tackling complex issues and breaking down barriers, and was just so in touch with reality that lended it to being the perfect read.
I have recently become a sucker for friendship books since I just graduated college (!!) and am desperately missing some of my roommates, and other friends that I left behind when I moved back home. Queens of Geek was so open and honest about more than just friendships; sexuality, anxiety, social fears, were all discussed, and there’s a little bit of something for everyone in here to relate to. Definitely a breath of fresh air after all the heavy reading I’ve been doing for the past few years.
Definitely something quick to pick up if you’re in-between books, and a fun summer read (especially if you’re heading out to any conventions this summer! This will get you right in the mood. And maybe a few swoony romances will befall you as well)!
