Top 10 before 2010: Into the Wild Nerd Yonder

Into the Wild Nerd Yonder
--Julie Halpern

Jessie has always been comfortable being in between cool and not cool. It's comfortable to be kind of in the middle, where no one much pays attention to you and your good math grades can be overlooked. Her brother is part of a local punk band which gives her a little extra street cred as well.

But her middle of the road status is thrown for a loop when her two best friends decide to act and dress like groupies for her brother's band even though they don't know the first thing about punk music. When you suddenly realize your friends are using you for back-stage-access things can get kind of confusing.

Like suddenly you might find yourself hanging with mathletes, band geeks or worse... Dungeons and Dragons players! If Jessie likes these guys, who are clearly part of the "uncool," what does that say about her? Is she ready to leave behind her middle of the road high school experience? Check out Into the Wild Nerd Yonder and get ready to roll for initiative.
