The Wild Nerd Yonder And A New Frontier

First things first, I would like to apolagoize for leaving LibraryLassie for so long. There’s no excuse. But I’m back, and better that ever. (Hopefully). I’m also thinking about starting up a music blog. But don’t worry. I am not going to neglect my first and best blog, this guy right here. I’m also making a change. Ish. As I get older, I am getting less interesed in younger children’s books, and now I really prefer teen books. So, I thought I should warn you. Some of these books are most definitly not approbrate for younger children. So, be warned.

Like this one. I love it. It’s called Into The Wild Nerd Yonder, and it’s HILARIOUS. It’s all about a girl named Jessie. She’s a sophmore in high school, and is best friends with two girls named Bizza and Char. She really looks up to her protective older brother Barrett, who is a member of the punk rock band the Clodhoppers. She also happens to have a crush on the drummer, Van. She also sews her own skirts, and has a different one for each day of the year.

She has to deal with the forces of peer pressure, when Bizza and Char decide to be something else. They had always been sorta-groupies. They followed the Clodhoppers everywhere. But at the beginnign of 10th grade, they go full on punk. Shave their heads, boots, black makeup punk. And now Jessie has to choose between her old freinds and a group of nerds who play Dungeons and Dragons. This is a great coming of age book about finding yourself and being who you truly are. I highly reccommend it. Just remember, it’s very funny, but only because it’s innapropriate for younger kids. Check it out sometime. Or give it as a middle school graduation present.
