Geekerella by Ashley Poston
About: Geek girl Ellie hopes to go to ExcelsiCon Cosplay to meet the actor (closet nerd Darien) scheduled to play Federation Prince Carmindor in a reboot of the movie Starfield. (Taken from catalog description)
What I Liked: This was a classic Cinderella story with some awesome geeky twists. Elle is a Starfield super fan and knows everything there is to know about it. Her step-mother and step-sisters hate it, until Darien Freeman comes into the picture. He gets cast to play Cormindor, the protagonist in the Starfield movie and Elle is not happy about it. She thinks he’s just a pretty face who will destroy the true essence of Starfield. Turns out she’s not one hundred percent right about that, but she doesn’t know that. She wants to win the cosplay contest so she can put Darien in his place. This is really important to her and her best friend Sage makes the costume a reality. Her step-sisters make this somewhat difficult, but Elle is determined. And throughout all of this, there’s a phone conversation happening. It was a huge twist for both of them to find out who was at the end of the other line. There is an awesome cast of characters that all contribute to a great story. This was a very cute book that I really enjoyed!
