Into the Wild Nerd Yonder. Julie Halpern, Author. Feiwel and Friends $ ( p) ISBN It’s Jessie’s sophomore year of high school. A self-professed “mathelete,” she isn’t sure where she belongs. Her two best friends have transformed themselves. As much as I love Into the Wild Nerd Yonder, I kind of hate it, too. Seriously, this book is amazing and I’m so jealous of Julie Halpern’s writing.

And the main character, I don’t really care about her. May 27, Isamlq rated it liked it.

All I can hope is that he has a thing for plan, girl-next-door types who the bad boys always seem to end up with on TV, right?

From a writer’s stand point, Hhalpern pass this lack of detail off as laziness and something that should only be acceptable during the first couple of drafts. Nothing was over done or over the top, which was a major plus for me.


And, as always, I love to hear your suggestions for books to feature in Young Adult Education.

I just hate dances! While the rest of the book, and Jessie’s journey in learning to have the self-confidence to embrace the things and people she likes, isn’t strong enough to recommend the book to older readers.

You make your own Pikachu skirts for crying out loud! Right off the bat I connected with Jessie’s narrative voice and I liked that she was a teenager who was fairly self-possessed, all things considered. You know, the one all the girls swoon over.

Now, that might seem boring and repetitive to some although maybe not to my excellent goodreader friends but those hours in the library were possibly my favorite part of high school. While there are lots of coming-of-age novels and learn-to-love yourself books out in the YA world, this one feels unique. Other amazing things that make this a definite worthwhile read: Two things I found hilarious: Are they born that way?

Most teen books do address sexual tension, but they often tip toe around the subject Twilight, anyone? For one, the reason why I rated this a one star is because zero is not an option.


Sort of like “My So Called Life” but as serious. Let them be and they will become the best life partners and husbands you could ever ask for. They are at Wendy’s. When I was a teenager, I tried to read, listen to, and learn about everything I ever saw referenced in my favorite books. I really liked this book. Once I got past that though, I really enjoyed reading this and thought that Halpern did a great job capturing the high school scene, teens and the conflict that teens feel when they might be drawn to someone or somet I really liked this book.

After finishing this one, I told my husband I need to nerd it up more. This one is a big favorite of mine — about a clumsy and loud girl who secretly wishes to be like the silent, black-wearing outcast at her school. Internal 1 1 Feb 23, I highly recommend it. He is in a band with Van, who is ‘that guy’.
