I got an early ARC of this and it was WONDERFUL. Clever, cute, well-written, incredibly nerdy - everything I wish had been written for tinier me!

Cat and Alex Gallo are at GeekiCon because their parents are the authors of the cult favorite Ducky McFowl and are participating in a panel discussion. Cat loves comics and is determined to win Con Quest, a slightly illegal contest that awards the winners time with a famous celebrity but is not sanctioned by the con. Alex, who may be somewhat neurodiverse, does not like crowds or being touched, and would just rather play video games of construct with Legos. Their older

This is a great book, not only for kids, but anyone who is a fan of Star Wars, Supernatural, Cons and comic books in general!

The main characters are a set of twins competing in the QUEST, an unsanctioned scavenger hunt put together by an actor of "Paranormal" who is described suspiciously like a character from Supernatural who ALSO runs a scavenger hunt at San Diego's ComiCon. ;)

I enjoyed the story of what defines a "real nerd" and the joy of being yourself. There are also TONS of mentions of

*Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for the review copy.*

This is such a cute and awesome middle grade book. I loved the writing and the characters. As a geek myself I loved all the names of the TV shows, movies, comic and manga/anime that were so close to the real thing(Star Worlds, for example.)

I could picture this as a movie, the descriptions were so vivid. And man, so I ever want to go to a Con!

Highly recommended.
