In his signature style, Oliver Phommavanh delivers this hilarious take on starting high school in his follow on book from Con-nerd.

Hi, I’m Connor and I’m a nerd. I thought I knew all there was to being one. But there are better nerds out there. Super nerds. Hyper nerds. Super, hyper nerds. I thought all nerds were smart. But that’s not true, because suddenly I don’t feel so bright anymore…

Our favourite character from Con-nerd returns in Super Con-nerd, where he finally makes it into a selective high school. If he thought the competition was intense to get into a selective school, it’s tougher on the inside.

Connor feels like everybody else is smarter than him and is trying to play catch up with the other super nerds, like Andrew Thompson who is top of his class.

Connor’s mum has loosened up and lets Connor draw his comics like Fireproof Knights, as long as his grades are good. Luckily, there’s no report cards after the first week of school…
