Cinderella goes to the con in this fandom-fueled twist on the classic fairy tale.
Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom. Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad’s old costume), Elle’s determined to win…unless her stepsisters get there first.
Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons—before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.

This book was one of those books that had heart wrenching moments that seemed so real. Reading this book caused me to feel many emotions that felt quite raw and that were quite true and I just simply felt like I could relate. The author wrote the book in such a way that made it feel like it was me who was the one who was getting her heart torn to pieces at the most saddest moments the main female character was living through. I highly recommend this book . And I really loved how the fandom element was incorporated into the story, it gave the original story a spark that ignited into this beautiful retelling of this colorful and star filled story of Geekerella.

Is this a graphic novel?

looks good love fairy tale twists

Yes, fairy tale twists are amazing!

This book is a book for people who believe in the power of fandom and how it can bring people together and tear them apart at the same time. It is romance,fandom, and friendship at the same time. I loved and I hope you do too
