I picked up Geekerella by Ashley Poston because I fell in love with it's cover.(guilty, guilty!) But I was also excited to know how the author has retold the story of Cinderella.
The artistry and brilliance of the author is clearly evident as she gave a modern touch to the story of a lonely girl living with her wicked stepmother and she has transformed it into a completely different story by adding the elements of Science Fiction.
We meet Elle, a geek girl obsessed and smitten by 'Starfield' which is a show being remade into a movie. On the other hand we have Darien, the lead actor of the movie. Their love for the show brings them together in the most unusual way. Read this one to find out how Elle and Darien struggle, deal with anxiety but most importantly, express their love for 'Starfield'.
Why to read the book: If you want to relive your childhood, grab this one. You will be definitely filled with excitement each time you'll spot a parallel to the fairy tale. A world of Instagram and Pinterest coupled with whole lot of modern references serves as a delightful and entertaining ride for the readers. The Pumpkin Carriage, Shoe and Ball Dance have been rendered a fun and contemporary refashioning.
So, if you're in a mood to reminisce your childhood, pick this one and enjoy!
