Cover Reveal: The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

Title: The Summer I Became a Nerd

Author: Leah Rae Miller

Genre: Young Adult Contemporary

Publisher: Entangled Teen

Expect Release: May 17, 2013


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.


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.

    I’m not sure about how I feel about this cover. I really like the girl’s body, how she is styled and her pose. But I don’t really like the rock in the background, I feel like something more interesting could have been thought up. What really turns me off though, is the font design.
