Do you prefer "geek" or "nerd"?

What do authors Holly Black, Scott Westerfeld, Libba Bray and John Green have in common (besides being authors, of course)? They all consider themselves geeks. And they've all written about their geek-selves, along with a slew of other super YA authors, in Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd. From theater geeks to Star Trekkers, there's a story there for every geek.

When Jessie's friends transform in to wanna-be punkers, she's not so happy. Especially since they do it just to hang out with Jessie's brother's bandmates. On the outs with them, she spends her time sewing (she makes different skirts for moods, holidays, and just because) and hanging out with her brother. Suddenly she's making friends with band kids and the local Dungeons and Dragons crew. Could she secretly be a nerd at heart? Follow Jessie as she goes Into the Wild Nerd Yonder, a hilarious story of friendship, family and embracing your inner nerd by Julie Halpern.
