Title: Nerd Girls: The Rise of the Dorkasaurus
Author: Alan Lawrence Sitomer
Release Date: July 5, 2011 [on Hardcover]
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH
Maureen, a thirteen-year-old self-proclaimed dork-a-saurus, is totally addicted to cupcakes and hot dogs and thinks that her body looks like a baked potato. Allergy-plagued Alice can’t touch a mango without breaking out in a rash, and if she eats wheat, her vision goes blurry. Klutzy to the extreme, Barbara is a beanpole who often embarrasses herself in front of the whole school. These outcasts don't have much in common--other than the fact that they are often targets of the ThreePees: the Pretty, Popular, Perfect girls who rule the school. But one day Maureen discovers that the ThreePees are planning to sit next to Allergy Alice in the cafeteria and eat peanut-butter-and-banana sandwiches on whole wheat toast with mango marmalade for lunch. And Maureen decides that it's time to topple the eight-grade social regime. She joins forces with Alice and Barbara and the Nerd Girls enter the school talent show, determined to take the crown from the ThreePees. Will their routine be enough to de-throne the popular crowd? Or will their plan backfire and shake their hold on the bottom rung of the social ladder?

Why waiting for Nerd Girls? Aside from loving paranormal, mystery and thriller, sci-fi and fantasy in YA category. I like to read a simple normal and typical teenage "boy" or "girl" story. No magic, just... the ordinary. Especially, if the book holds something hilarious. And I think this one has it, without a doubt. I think this one is a war between the nerds and the popular. Well... I have watched an awesome movie mostly about girly-girls (I don't know what I'm saying!lol!) Mean Girls. I believe you know that one, who hasn't. I do currently reading The Lipstick Laws, and obviously it is like the movie I mentioned, only different. I like the funny stuffs included on this particular story, I really does makes me laugh. Let's see how this one will make me laugh! :]
NetGalley approves my request for an eARC of this book for review! Thanks a lot! So what are you waiting this week? Happy Reading! :]
