TBR Tuesday: Into the Wild Nerd Yonder

Most of us have books we've bought with all intentions of reading (or maybe just because it was cheap!), only to have them fade away on a shelf or disappear into a stack of books, never to be seen or thought of again.
TBR Tuesday is a way to talk about the books we own but haven't read, see what other people think about them, and help us decide whether to bump it up our list or knock it off completely.

Everyone is welcome to participate; feel free to link your TBR post to the linky below. :)

On my TBR

Into the Wild Nerd Yonder
Julie Halpern

It’s Jessie’s sophomore year of high school. A self-professed “mathelete,” she isn’t sure where she belongs. Her two best friends have transformed themselves into punks and one of them is going after her longtime crush. Her beloved older brother will soon leave for college (and in the meantime has shaved his mohawk and started dating . . . the prom princess!) . . .
Things are changing fast. Jessie needs new friends. And her quest is a hilarious tour through high-school clique-dom, with a surprising stop along the way—the Dungeons and Dragons crowd, who out-nerd everyone. Will hanging out with them make her a nerd, too? And could she really be crushing on a guy with too-short pants and too-white gym shoes? If you go into the wild nerd yonder, can you ever come back?

This one was a gift from the ever-awesome Ksenia, and I had actually never heard of it.  I was completely taken by the title and tagline (which if you can't read it, says 'My life on the dork side'), and I almost started to read it soon after receiving it.  But as too often happens, it got placed in a stack in my room (and books are so hard to get out of stacks without the whole damn things collapsing), and it's been there ever since.  The spine peeks out at me on occasion, reminding me to get in touch with my inner nerd.  Not that I need a lot of help remembering to do that.  I mean, I write a book blog.  I host fairy tale and Jane Austen events.  So...that's pretty much covered, amirite?
Have any of you read this one?  Are you in touch with your inner nerd, or do you still try to play cool and deny it?
What's on your tbr?


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
