Publisher's Summary

A sweet, funny contemporary teen romance for the inner geek in all of us from graphic novelist Faith Erin Hicks.  

Miriam's family should be rich. After all, her grandfather was the cocreator of smash-hit comics series the TomorrowMen. But he sold his rights to the series to his cocreator in the 1960s for practically nothing, and now, that's what Miriam has: practically nothing. And practically nothing to look forward to, either - how can she afford college when her family can barely keep a roof above their heads? 

As if she didn't have enough to worry about, Miriam's life gets much more complicated when a cute boy shows up in town...and turns out to be the grandson of the man who defrauded Miriam's grandfather and the heir to the TomorrowMen fortune.  

In her endearing debut audiobook, cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks delivers a sensitive and funny Romeo and Juliet tale about modern romance, geek royalty, and what it takes to heal the long-festering scars of the past (spoiler alert: love).

Excellent mix of YA romance and comic book nerdom

I loved the story and its roots in comic book history.

I loved Weldon and Mir.

I thought the narration was pretty spot on. It would've been nice for it to have a male narrator for the Weldon POV switch, but that's just a nice to have--not a must by any means.
