The Lovereading4Kids comment
Fans of Geekhood: Close Encounters of a Girl Kind will enjoy this equally charming and sympathetic story of how Archie continues to dream of romance with Sarah. But Archie also remains wedded to dressing up in costumes to play his beloved role-playing games… Will being a games geek prevent him from getting a girl friend? Archie’s turmoil illuminated by his flashes of insight make this a funny and poignant story.
Geekhood: Mission Improbable by Andy Robb
Sequel to Andy Robb’s highly acclaimed debut Geekhood: Close Encounters of the Girl Kind, Archie is a Geek to his core - and despite having a Close Encounter with Sarah at the beginning of term, he's still completely clueless about girls. Enter Clare - an older woman (she's sixteen) who Archie meets on his weekend trip to see his dad and his nightmare step-mum, Jane. Clare and Archie hit it off - and she comes up with a brilliant, foolproof way to get their crushes to notice them: pretend to be going out with one another! What can possibly go wrong? With school, Sarah, a fake girlfriend and his insane family to deal with, Archie and his mates step-up the nerdiness and go Live Action Role-play gaming. Ladies and gentlemen, we are entering a new era...
Celebrating all things geeky, the first Geekhood novel, published in June 2012, followed 14-year-old Archie as he emerged from his world of roleplaying games on a quest to win the heart of a Beautiful Girl. With warring parents, a crass step-father and school
bullies to contend with, and no rule book to navigate Life’s Big Challenges, Archie’s task was certainly no walk in the park...
