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).

Sweet Nerdy Love Story

This book is light and fluffy and I loved every minute of it. If you want a sweet romance mixed in with your comics references I highly recommend it.

Not What I expected

So I decided to read this book in the spirit of The Avengers movie and I wanted something nerdy and related to comics and this seemed perfect for this mood Sadly it wasn't that good, I mean the story is fine but nothing was really happening and I couldn't get myself to like any of the characters, I was really sad that Evan never got his shot but I was really bored and uninterested through out the story, I guess I wanted something more of ( Geekerella ) vibe So the story is about Mir and Weldon who happens to be from two feuding family over comics and such and how will their love story unfold .. it's light and no drama whatsoever I expected better but alas .. didn't enjoy i The narrator wasn't good, she was so monotone and made the story even harder to get into, you can listen to it but don't expect something great

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.
