Into the Wild Nerd Yonder. Julie Halpern, Author. Feiwel and Friends $ ( p) ISBN It’s Jessie’s sophomore year of high school. A self-professed “mathelete,” she isn’t sure where she belongs. Her two best friends have transformed themselves. As much as I love Into the Wild Nerd Yonder, I kind of hate it, too. Seriously, this book is amazing and I’m so jealous of Julie Halpern’s writing.

Aug 09, Carly rated it liked nedr. And is she sort of okay with that? I love Julie Halpern – she writes with so much humor and heart that it makes for a great read. Jesse is your run-of-the-mill, typical teenage girl. Your life is too precious for this book! I mean, who couldn’t fall for “slushy-blue” colored eyes?!

The book is average. Though I wanted to read this book before I saw the cover.


Her punk rock brother is dating the prom princess. It has very little to do with the joy of becoming a nerd.

Which was disappointing because I was really looking forward to hearing about what people do herd live action role-playing games. Julie lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband, author and illustrator Matthew Cordell, and their two children.

I am a foreigner and I need to know the answer to this question. They seem genuinely comfortable in their own skins, and I love reading about that in a YA book. And where do I fit into all of this?

The book is loaded with the mediocre, halperm awful and the just plain nasty They are exactly as I remember me and my friends being: The antagonists jalpern not archetypes, but simply the villains a lot of us remember from our own high school days: I wasn’t ready for it to end. The conversations between the teenagers are to me a bit terrifying and what I would definetely classify as inappropriate.

Julie Halpern – Into the Wild Nerd Yonder

I was so pleasantly relaxed and happy Apr 17, Megan rated it it was ok Shelves: Jessie was so likable and simple; after being ditched by her oldest friends in the world on the This book is no literary masterpiece, but its one of the funniest novels I’ve ever read and it’s a short, fun read too – I finished it in a little more than 24 hours.

And while her so called friends were undeniably vicious and mean girls, Jessie herself was no angel…she was a little passive aggressive, and slightly snarky. And now reading more and more YA lit I am learning that apparently these are not cool things and popular people don’t do any of them. It had a positive message and a happy, warm-fuzzy conclusion.

I fell in love with all of the hilarious characters immediately, from quirky makes-her-own-funky-skirts Jessie, to curly-haired-nerdy-but-sweet Henry, yobder Dungeon-and-Dragon-master-dork Dottie, to adoring-ex-punk older brother Barrett.

He’s devoted to Jessie without being a wimp about it and their interactions are genuine and mutually caring without being saccharine.

This coming-of-age, finding oneself book was soo vy.
