Gamers, band geeks, science nerds, and Trekkies — this one's for you! Waiting impatiently for the new ? Have you finished Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, and Paper Towns by John Green, but you still want more? Inside Geektastic, you will find 15 stories from the best YA authors out there. Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci (who are responsible for this glorious book) kick things off with one of the funniest stories I've read in years: "Once You're a Jedi, You're a Jedi All the Way." Ever wonder what would happen if a Jedi fell in love with a Klingon? This is your answer. Scott Westerfeld's here, with an edgy tale of love, danger, and adventure. Online love blossoms and withers in both Casandra Clare's "I Never" and Kelly Link's "Secret Identity." There's baton twirling, Rocky Horror Picture Show viewing, Quiz Bowl, and fantastically hilarious comics by Bryan Lee O'Malley (Scott Pilgrim) and Hope Larson (Chiggers). This book will remind you how great it is to be a geek.
