Goodreads Synopsis:

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.


“‘Well, it’s like my dear old grandma always says, “If you never get told you’re a wuss, you’ll always be a wuss,”’ Dan says.
‘I know you’re grandma, and she would never say that,’ Logan says.
‘Hey, my Meemaw is a tough old bird. Don’t underestimate her.’” (Paperback, pg. 104)

You are about to enter a nightclub for paranormal creatures called Sanctuary, which means stepping over this threshold puts you IN GAME.” (Paperback, pg. 105)

So. Read anything good lately?
