I'm happy today to be participating in the cover reveal for an upcoming book from Entangled Teen. This cover reveal is for The Summer I Became a Nerd, by Leah Rae Miller. I love it. I'm so excited to share it with all of you.

Genre: Contemporary Young Adult
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Publication Date: 5/7/13

On the outside, seventeen-year-old Madelyne Summers looks like your typical blond cheerleader—perky, popular, and dating the star quarterback. But inside, Maddie spends more time agonizing over what will happen in the next issue of her favorite comic book than planning pep rallies with her squad. That she’s a nerd hiding in a popular girl's body isn’t just unknown, it's anti-known. And she needs to keep it that way.
Summer is the only time Maddie lets her real self out to play, but when she slips up and the adorkable guy behind the local comic shop’s counter uncovers her secret, she’s busted. Before she can shake a pom-pom, Maddie’s whisked into Logan’s world of comic conventions, live-action role-playing, and first-person-shooter video games. And she loves it. But the more she denies who she really is, the deeper her lies become…and the more she risks losing Logan forever.
How cool is this? I totally love the reversal of hottie/popular girl-to-nerdy girl. It's a complete shift of what we typically see in books and movies and I'm thrilled!

Born and raised in northern Louisiana, Leah Rae Miller still lives there on a windy hill with her husband and kids. She loves comic books, lava lamps, fuzzy socks, and Cherry Coke. She spends most of her days reading things she likes and writing things she hopes other people will like.

You guys! I just saw on GoodReads that Leah lives in the same Louisiana town that I lived in a few years ago! If I still lived there I would totally take her to Lasyone's Meat Pie Kitchen or The Landing to celebrate this reveal. Congratulations to Leah and Entangled Teen.
