Eeeeeh. I’m honestly feeling disappointed with Love and Other Unknown Variables because more than half the Goodreads reviews have rated this book 5 stars. Sadly, I just don’t see the appeal. The book follows Charlie, a boy who attends Brighton School of Mathematics and Science and has his entire future planned out. He wants to go to MIT and he’s crazy good at maths.

There are two main subgenres that peel off from contemporary; the sweet and fun or the dark and meaningful. In this case, The Summer I Became A Nerd is a copacetic mixture of the two, turning out to be a cute yet depth-contained novel. I thought that the story was slightly unrealistic and the main character lacked self-esteem but in the end, it was thoroughly enjoyable. Leah Rae Miller created quite a handful of character moulds.
