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.

When I was a teenager, I tried to read, listen to, and learn about everything I ever saw referenced in my favorite books. Jessie had me in laughs every page I turned. I was a bit annoyed with the use of parentheses in every other sentence. I guess it would be nice if life were so easy to figure tye but it was an enjoyable read and Jessie was a fun snarky heroine. In addition, my advanced calculus teacher decided to schedule the class in the super early crack of dawn time slot so the class time would never be affected by assemblies so I had to take the early bus.

Feb 09, Ami rated it liked it Shelves: She doesn’t even know his name, ino that night, she has a wet dream yes, girls have them, too! Jessie Sloan is the quirky and interesting girl that has never had to really stop and consider how quirky and interesting she is, due to the conventional popularity of her big brother and circle of friends.


It was just one of those feeling.


This book is not correctly marketed. So, I thought about that a lot while reading this book.

So below is my review from May 8th, Jess struggled in the story with where she fit in and whether, she was okay thr being average, but nerdy. S You will never eat a Krispy Kreme donut again, due to the aforementioned oral sex conversation.

In her imaginary spare time, she enjoys traveling, watching television for grown-ups, and eating baked goods. Nerds-in-denial in jr high? As a teen, I wanted to grow up so badly. I loved her no B.

A lot of teen books do this, and I can understand why.

INTO THE WILD NERD YONDER by Julie Halpern | Kirkus Reviews

Through all the crap that bogs down sexuality in teen books, keeping real teenage girls who read them from fully realizing “Hey, I’m not the only horny freak out there who also is a girl,” this book hands it to you on the plate with the rest of your dinner.

Kerry Winfrey June 29, 8: Do they also have to get gonorrhea and be taken advantage of by asshole dudes? Symbol 1 1 Feb 27, I really liked this book.

I am not kidding.

You are okay exactly as you are! Into the Imto Nerd Yonder was a good book that could have been much bette Rating: It was refreshing to see what I think is reality for a lot of teens – a girl who marches to the beat of her own drummer, but still worries about others hearing that beat. It seems that the ending is way to long off so I make yonver ending here.

We’re All A Little Nerdy: ‘Into The Wild Nerd Yonder’ by Julie Halpern

This will have to be chalked up to a case of, “It’s not you, it’s me. Maybe this is just me. The differences between dork and nerd still eludes me, but either way, Jessie is hilarious.

I have wonderful siblings who I never stopped feeling close to. I love seeing siblings getting along and looking out for each other, but the dude was just too saintly.

A personal favorite line: So instead, there’s at least a minute of dead silence. As someone who has had to dump crappy friends and has been dumped by crappy friends, I totally understood where she was coming from and how she was feeling, because I’ve been there.

While not awful, I have a hard time thinking of anyone I could recommend ino book to.
