Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad’s old costume), Elle’s determined to win…unless her stepsisters get there first.
Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons—before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. But when she disappears at midnight, will he ever be able to find her again?
Geekerella will definitely be one of those books that you will reread a million times and will never get bored of. This Cinderella retelling is so cute and just too perfect! I love retellings but hardly ever find one that’s truly unique!
The main character, Elle is a great character to follow. She’s relatable and just so sweet. However, her stepmom drove me crazy! She’s so pathetic and so mean to Elle. I wish Elle would just do something (like punch her stepmom) but she’s so obedient and is just too good. Elle’s stepsisters are super annoying! But I really like how the author tried to blend the classic Cinderella into Geekerella. It works so well. I felt the emotions running through Elle!
To sum it up, you have to get this book. You need to read Geekerella and fall in love with it with me.
