Geektastsic: Stories from the Nerd Herd edited by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci

Geektastic is a combination of short stories and single-page graphic humor by some of today’s hottest YA authors (M.T. Anderson, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Tracy Lynn, Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Barry Lyga, Wendy Mass, Garth Nix, Scott Westerfield, Lisa Yee, and Sara Zarr). The stories range anywhere from laugh out loud funny to some more serious and touching - and although I’m not a big fan of short stories - this one is definitely worth the read.

Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci's opening story “had me at hello” - just uproariously funny. Libba Bray’s story and my new hero “David Leithan” - were amazing. I will confess there were some great stories and some not-so-great one’s - but in the end I think it was a good all-around package. I really wasn’t much of a geek during high school and at one point even doubted whether or not I was geek enough to get some of these stories- but other than a handful of references that went over my head - I felt right at home.

This is great reading for those of us who at one point were obsessed with Klingons, Jedis, Dr. Who, astronomy, dinosaurs, drama club, marching band, crushes, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Quiz Bowl, etc.

This is a must read for any geek, geeklover, or undercover geek. I'm totally doing the “live long and prosper hand signal” right now.

GIVEAWAY: I have 5 copies of Geektastic up for grabs.
