Into the Wild Nerd Yonder by Julie Halpern
By teen libApril 4, 2011
Jessie is starting her sophomore year of high school, and on her first day of school, she discovers that her two best friends, Bizza and Char, have transformed themselves into punks without ever mentioning this to her. All this transformation is just so they can hang out with Jessie’s brother’s punk band, and Bizza can date Van, Jessie’s longtime crush in the band. So where does this leave Jessie? Basically friendless, floating through various high school cliques trying to find her niche. After helping a dork study for a math test, Jessie suddenly panics, wondering if that makes her an even bigger dork. But when one of the class nerd’s introduces Jessie to the world of Dungeons & Dragons, Jessie scores some of the coolest nerd friends ever. But Jessie still wonders if you go into the wild nerd yonder, can you ever come back?
