RRP  $40.99 $37.35
A sharp, hilarious, and perfectly observed story of high school geeks falling in true love.
Sam Kinnison is a geek, and he's totally fine with that. He has his horror movies, his nerdy friends, World of Warcraft--and until Princess Leia turns up in his bedroom, worry about girls he won't.
Then Camilla Carter arrives on the scene. She's beautiful, friendly and completely irrelevant to his plan. Sam is determined to ignore her, except that Camilla has a plan of her own--and he seems to be a part of it! Sam believes that everything he needs to know he can learn from the movies. But perhaps he's been watching the wrong ones.
Author Melissa Keil will have readers falling in love with these relatable characters. Sam's exceptional voice gives a hilarious and painfully accurate take on high school life.
