Quotes & Awards

  • “Read it cover to cover, and then make sure you share it with all the young girl geeks you know.”

  • “This is a supersolid guide to the social side of getting your geek on, targeted mainly to those taking their first steps into communal nerdity but also offering some new information for longtime fans. The book is a particularly welcome entrant in an arena that still too often presumes a straight white male as the default…Highly recommended.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Embrace your inner geek!..Narrator Holly Conrad tackles the challenging task of delivering lists, helpful hints, URLs, advice, and humorous asides with an upbeat and conversational tone. Multiple interviews with famous women of fandom necessitate a second narrator. Jessica Almasy projects enthusiasm and purpose..This production may contain facts, tips, and instructions, but at heart, it’s a motivational book that entreats young women to embrace their fangirl passions without apology.”
