Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd edited by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci
Geektastic is a collection of short stories written by popular YA fiction authors including Cassandra Clare, John Green, David Levithan, Scott Westerfeld, and others. In order to rate this book, I’d have to rate each story individually, which would take way too long. So I’ll just say that all of these stories are pretty great in their own way and anyone who even remotely considers himself or herself a geek should read this book. The stories all focus on some aspect of geekdom and cover all the basics including comic books, fantasy stories, live action role playing, online gaming, and a lot of conventions. It’s an easy read, considering the longest story is less than fifty pages. It’s a book with great geeky charm and even better geeky comics.
