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.

They have all been ‘BFF’s’ for “like forever”. And is she sort of okay with that? Her punk rock brother is dating the prom princess.

Into the Wild Nerd Yonder by Julie Halpern

There was something oddly serene or nostalgic about reading this book. On the one hand, I could relate to every bit of this. Dec 05, Need Fitzgerald rated it really liked it Shelves: We, as the readers, want to be able to use our imagination and not be explained everything.

Want to Read saving…. I highly recommend it.

But despite that, Into the Wild Nerd Yonder was still a fun read and I would recommend it to everyone. This ijto a girl who, upon entering her sophomore year of high school is feeling left out and left behind by her whorish and not very nice best friends. At first I thought maybe the book was set in the 90s or something, but words like ‘n00b’ and ‘pwn’ told me otherwise. The truth is, boy nerds are just as socially awkward as girl nerds, if not more so. Are they born that way?


Why, because he’s GOOD? The sibling relationship was just fantastic.

A friend of mine in jr high once made a joke with the word “orgasm” in it. Two things I found hilarious: Let them be and they will become the best life partners and husbands you could ever ask hqlpern.

Anyone know what I mean?

She was an uber jerk, but like many people in that situation, Jessie didn’t see it. I never thought of it growing up – I did good in halperh, often liked doing my homework, read a lot, had low-key parties with my few close friends with pie-making and playing “Heroes of Might and Magic” on PC.


Aug 01, Mary rated it liked it. Jesse is your run-of-the-mill, typical teenage girl.

Plus, Dungeons and Dragons rules. She could go and stay at playpen if wants, I’ll be off doing more constructive things. Jessie is firmly and stubbornly clinging to her childhood. They were nice and pretty hip without being all “father knows best.

INTO THE WILD NERD YONDER by Julie Halpern | Kirkus Reviews

So, I thought about that a lot while reading this book. The fact that I am here, on Goodreads, and writing a book review is a proof enough that I am an unapologetic nerd. This time five years ago I was beginning my sophomore year of high school and was tbe a relationship with my first boyfriend ever.

You make your own Pikachu skirts for crying out loud!

May 22, Rachel Hartman rated it it yonded ok. For example, she feels embarrassed for him because he wears too-short pants and too-white sneakers, which is exactly the sort of detail my friends and I would have noticed about dudes in high school.
