Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde
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.
I haven’t read Queens of Geek yet but it is a book that’s high on my to-read list. It’s a fandom story and if there’s one thing I love seeing in contemporary books, in all YA books, it’s fandom representation.
What’s more I’ve heard incredible things about Queens of Geek. Every review I’ve seen has been full of praise for the story, for the character development, and for the diversity throughout. This is one I keep meaning to get around to soon, but I know I’m going to love Queens of Geek just as much as everyone else has when I finally do.
“You don’t need to fit yourself into what society tells us a girl should be. Girls can be whoever they want. Whether an ass-kicking, sarcastic, crime-solving FBI agent or a funny, gorgeous, witty beauty queen—or both at the same time.”
