Geekerella: Book Review

Book Review: Geekerella
By Tiegan Grant
Geekerella is a story that follows a young girl (Elle). This story is a Cinderella retelling with geeky aspects. But unexpected things happen. The so called worst actor gets cast as her favourite character in a TV show, a stranger starts texting her and a mutual friendship is formed. And of course, the wrecked twin step sisters and step mother.
As this story progresses you meet wonderful characters with quirky personalities.
It is not hard to guess the plot as it is a play-by-play of the original Cinderella. But with it comes geeky and quirky personalities, and the text. For example the main geeky aspect is that Ella is obsessed with Starfield. A TV show that is an escape for her from reality. But as the show reboots will it meet her expectations or will it be the shows greatest downfall?
Some of the things that I personally liked were that she was no ordinary girl she was special in her own way, same with Darien the actor that everybody thought new nothing about his role but he was secretly a fan boy himself.
The way the text was written was intriguing as it had references to Starfield (which I haven’t watched) but it was fun to learn about this universe with the characters.
Through this book you can tell the love that Ashley Poston has for fandoms and geeky things, as it shows through Ella’s personality.
