Taking a break from holiday shopping sprees? Need some brain candy after finals? Trying to find a way to distract yourself from eating the piles of sugar cookies in your kitchen? Look no further than Little Brown's website for The Great Geek Escape game!
Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd edited by Holly Black and Ceceil Castellucci, one of our Milwaukee County Teen Book Award nominees (and a favorite of both Katie's and mine!) is a laugh-out-loud collection of short stories about geeks big and small - math nerds, band geeks, Jedi knights and Klingons, LARPers, and the Dawn Summers inside all of us. The Great Geek Escape is more fun than Farmville, as you take your superhero or band geek through the halls of high school, gathering snacks and avoiding the paths of the jocks and the mean girls, to rescue one of the Nerd Herd. So read the book, play the game (in no particular order!), and get your geek on!
( looking forward to starting Ash by Malinda Lo, one of the Morris nominees, when I get home tonight!)
