Geekhood: Close Encounters of the Girl Kind

Geekhood: Close Encounters of the Girl Kind by Andy Robb

Archie is a Fully Fledged Geek. He is a level five mage and his favourite shop is The Hovel. He doesn't expect his life to change, until one day when hes down at The Hovel and meets someone totally unexpected. It's a girl...

Ok, so that may have not been the best Synopsis I have ever written, but its a complicated book. The writing style makes you believe its written by a teenager, and I like the IM and EM, which are his Internal Monologue and his External Monologue. I thought it was particularly funny how awkward his step dad was, and how his real dad failed to use correct Text Speak. To sum it all up, this book is basically a fun book for big kids.

I am going to give it a 7/10
and an age rating of 11+
