Geeks, Girls and Secret Identities!




I am so happy to announce the release of my Ninja buddy, Mike Jung's, spectacularly funny debut titled GEEKS, GIRLS AND SECRET IDENTITIES! This is a book I got to read in a draft form. It is a book that made me howl with laughter. It darn nearly made me have an accident! And let's face it, this is one of the coolest book covers ever! A giant robot? Yes please!!



Can knowing the most superhero trivia in the whole school be considered a superpower?

If so, Vincent Wu is invincible.

If not (and let’s face it, it’s “not”), then Vincent and his pals Max and George don’t get any props for being the leaders (and, well, sole members) of the (unofficial) Captain Stupendous Fan Club.

But what happens when the Captain is hurt in an incident involving BOTH Professor Mayhem and his giant indestructible robot AND (mortifyingly) Polly Winnicott-Lee, the girl Vincent totally has a crush on?

The entire city is in danger, Vincent’s parents and his friends aren’t safe, the art teacher has disappeared, and talking to Polly is REALLY, REALLY AWKWARD.

Only Vincent Wu has what it takes to save the Captain, overcome Professor Mayhem, rally his friends, and figure out what to say to Polly. But will anyone take him seriously? Seriously. Anyone??

Find out in this action-packed super comedy debut.
So yesterday my youngest had to miss school. We discovered at the beginning of soccer season that she had ongoing pain which was diagnosed as Sever's Disease, which is a bone disorder involving the growth plate in the heel. It is not dangerous and she will eventually grow out of it, but it means she is in a lot of pain when she overuses it. So the orthopedist put her in a boot today. Poor thing. She was pretty depressed about it so I took her to the bookstore to buy some books. I had told her to keep an eye out for Mike's book and sure enough, she was the first to spot it!



If she didn't have a boot on I think she might have climbed the shelves to reach it. As it is, she's on her tippytoes! She was really excited to finally get her hands on Mike's book! When we brought it home, the other girls all freaked out! They are the co-presidents of Mike's super secret fan club so they feel pretty proprietary about the book and think it should be on the NYT bestselling list like right now!

And so I have the great pleasure of having a giveaway of my friend's awesome book! All you have to do is leave me a comment or tweet me that you think Geeks and girls and secret identities is cool! Then you will be entered for a chance to win a copy of Mike's super cool book!

For more information about Mike, you can check out Mike's blog or follow him on twitter.
