Watch Why Geek Girls Rule!

Full of wit, geek girl awesomeness and a never-say-die attitude, Blaze is a heroine that YA book fans, nerdettes, and comic book lovers alike will embrace. But don’t take our word for it:

  • “High-schooler Blaze is self-depricating, hilarious, and geeky in the coolest way possible. Blaze (Or Love In The Time Of Supervillains) is one of the most relatable anti-love stories we've come across in a while. Plus, the comic book drawings inside are awesome!” —Seventeen.com
  • "At turns funny, cringe-worthy and heartbreaking...Don’t miss out."—RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ stars
  • "Made me laugh...and cringe...and laugh again...Laurie Boyle Crompton's blend of snark and heart will keep you turning the pages." —Mandy Hubbard author of Prada and Prejudice
  • "Entertaining reading. What makes the story truly valuable...the novel forces readers to reconsider the way they treat their peers, especially girls, over their sexual behavior, real or imagined."Publishers Weekly
  • "Hilarious and heartfelt! Blaze is a hero for the modern age!" —Jennifer Ziegler, author of How to NOT be Popular
