Review

"Queens of Geek" is an emotional, lively story full of characters that leap off the page and slip their hands into yours, inviting you into a world where the geeks and nerds are royalty and fandom is court. Richly realized and defiantly affirming, "Queens of Geek" reminds us that adventures and romances aren't limited to archetypes but are, in fact, for all of us. Katherine Locke, author of "Second Position," moderator of #GayYABookClub

Praise from the Swoon Reads community:

"It was a delightful read. . . .This book, in my opinion, is just so empowering!" -brio, reader on SwoonReads.com

"This is the first book I've ever read that I've seen myself in. I felt like Taylor was me. . . . I wish I could have had this book 20 years ago. One of the best things I've read in years." -Mandy.Valentine, reader on SwoonReads.com

"I love the idea of the book taking place at a convention, it's a lot of fun!" -stacy, reader on SwoonReads.com

"I loved how real the characters felt, especially Taylor. I absolutely adored all of them, and I couldn't stop reading once I started." -Lucy.Mawson, reader on SwoonReads.com

"["Queens of Geek"] was an incredibly compelling read, just because it contained a storyline I ABSORBED, and characters so diverse they were a pleasure to read! . . . Mix that with the romance, self-discovery of self-worth, and all the geeky references, this made for a perfect read! I honestly couldn't put it down, reading late into the night to see what happened next! " -Zoie K, reader on SwoonReads.com

"I love everyone in this book and it deserves a space on my Swoon shelf right next to where I'll place "All The Feels."" -Catherine Tinker, reader on SwoonReads.com

"I love how interesting the story was and how the author adressed the characters' diversity without glossing over it or making it all about that. . . . It reminded me a little of "Fangirl."" -Lizzie, reader on SwoonReads.com

"I really liked the characters, and especially that they weren't afraid to be themselves and express their geekiness." -Mike, reader on SwoonReads.com"

Praise for Queens of Geek

"Seeing girls and women uplifting, protecting, and loving each other is extremely powerful especially in the context of fandom. The book deals head on with issues of mental health, body shaming, sexuality, and internet celebrity, handling them with a delicate and skillful touch." --Teen Vogue

"Jen Wilde's book about two best friends--one a bisexual young woman of color, the other a young [autistic] woman . . . dealing with anxiety--will be a favorite of anyone who is a fan of geek culture. . . . This fun book about fierce friendships gives voice to a group of diverse female characters who are so defined by so much more than just their mental health and sexuality." --Bustle

"Queens of Geek is an emotional, lively story full of characters that leap off the page and slip their hands into yours, inviting you into a world where the geeks and nerds are royalty and fandom is court. Richly realized and defiantly affirming, Queens of Geek reminds us that adventures and romances aren't limited to archetypes but are, in fact, for all of us." --Katherine Locke, author of Second Position, moderator of #GayYABookClub

"The characters' diversity provides natural opportunities to explore a number of contemporary teen issues, including race, sexual orientation, feminism, and body image. Some of the most compelling chapters are told from the point of view of Taylor, who fears change, hates crowds, and is on the autism spectrum. . . . Part of Macmillan's crowdsourced imprint, this celebration of geek culture and fandom promotes diversity and being true to oneself." --School Library Journal

"Queens of Geek is full of book and movie references and is a fun look at the fandom convention phenomena. Taylor's anxiety and experience with Asperger's are treated with sensitivity. . . . Queens of Geek is a fun, quick read that will appeal to romance readers and self-proclaimed geeks." --VOYA
