It's the first day of school and Jessie's friends have turned up in full poseur punk style and are flirting with Jessie's crush. Jessie decides it's time to reevaluate who her friends really are and maybe make some new ones. She just didn't expect her new friends to be nerds.
I loved Jessie, the main character, for her attitude and sense of humor and I even loved her sense of style. I loved how the D&D nerds and band camp kids were actual people instead of stereotypes. I loved how Jessie's struggle between being herself and being liked is so honestly portrayed. I yelled at the jerks in the book, winced at the betrayals, and laughed out loud frequently. In short, I loved this book. And not just because I'm a nerd.
