Overview

Last year, Shelby Chapelle and her friend Becca founded the Queen Geek Social Club, and set out to find others of their kind. This year, Becca has even bigger plans for the Queen Geeks. She thinks working on the club's website and planning Geekfest (a talent show of geek-tastic proportions) should be Shelby's number one priority.

Guys have always been strictly secondary to the goal of spreading geekiness to every corner of Green Pines High School...and then the world! But sophomore year heats up when Shelby is swept off her feet by the karaoke stylings of a guy named Fletcher. And then Becca and another Queen Geek fall for the same guy, which results in a cursed love triangle-or a doomed love rhombus, if you count Shelby and Fletcher.

The going can get tough when Queek Geeks fall in love, but Shelby knows that being true to your inner geek is the most important thing.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 8-10- In The Queen Geek Social Club (Berkley, 2006), high school freshmen Becca Gallagher and Shelby Chapelle formed a group that would bring together girls like themselves. In this sequel, Becca has plans to make the QGSC even bigger and better, with Shelby's help. Her friend, however, is preoccupied with her first serious boyfriend. Preble expertly handles the ups and downs of teenage friendship and romance, as well as motherless Shelby's relationship with her involved, "mad scientist dad." Readers will enjoy this light, funny novel with real characters who go through the typical trials of teenage life.-Shari Fesko, Southfield Public Library, MI

Megan, Timber Creek High School Class of 2008 This novel is a sequel to the Queen Geeks Social Club. I didn¿t read the first one but you really don¿t need to. This is an easy read, it will only take you a day or two because once you start you won¿t be able to put it down. Queen Geeks in Love was simply amazing. If you are a teenage girl you will really enjoy this book. In the first novel different and unique girls started a social club called the ¿Queen Geeks,¿ now in this novel they are trying to make their social club bigger. Becca, kind of the girl in charge of everything wants to start a website for their club. Another character, Shelby, her boyfriend, Fletcher, offers to help the Queen Geeks create their website. Now that everyone is spending time with Fletcher they are falling for him, but he is Shelby¿s boyfriend. The girls all go through things that a typical teenage girl would go through, that is what I liked most about this novel, I could relate to the girls and their problems!

This isn't one of those books that you read for finding yourself and trying to be deep. It's not a classical book you can discuss with your teacher, but nonetheless, it was amazing and I loved it! Good read, so definitely try it out. Read the first book, though; then read this one. I have yet to read Prom Queen Geeks and I hope it doesn't disappoint! :)

Blech. I think there's just one word for this book no. The whole geeky thing, while in the first book, it may have been entertaining, just got too over the top. Even sophomores in high school should be mature enough to not run around in super hero costumes out of a manga novel they themselves invented. To me, that's just a little weird. And I know that weird was what they were going for in the first place, but, I don't know, it was just too weird (did I use the word weird enough for you there?). I truthfully don't know anyone who would do the stuff that the Geek Club did in this book. And throughout the whole thing, you have all these guy issues that just got repetitive and boring. Shelby likes Fletcher, Shelby can't commit, Fletcher's sad, Shelby and Fletcher make up, Fletcher wants to take it a step further, Shelby backs away, Fletcher dates another girl, and in the end they happily get back together. If that wasn't enough for you we have the whole Becca is in love with Jon who is in love with Amber thing going on. Which, oh my, threatens to break up their friendship. The book was really slow, boring, unoriginal, and just plain dreary. Like the first one, I found no reason to keep reading, although I did, just to say I finished the book. The one good part of the book for me was the karaoke bit. Although highly predictable, I loved that whole part of it. What can I say, I'm a sap for that kind of stuff. But really, unless you're just looking for a way to pass time, don't read this book. It's just not worth it. I'm sad to have written such a bad review...maybe the third book will change my mind. *crosses fingers*

Last time, in THE QUEEN GEEK SOCIAL CLUB, Shelby and her new best friend, Becca, created a group full of average girls that would try to take over the world, one Twinkie at a time. Along the way, Shelby had to get used to her dad dating, making sure her friend didn't go too far, and falling for the oh-so-adorable Fletcher.

Shelby Chapelle is back, this time with even more sticky situations. Shelby and Fletcher have gotten pretty close, except for the parts where she starts to pull away or changes the subject when things get too serious. Sure, Fletcher is great, but since he is Shelby's first boyfriend, freaking out over everything that goes on between them seems like the sensible thing to do. Besides, who really wants to be affectionate in public? Their relationship could work out, just as long as Fletcher takes all of Shelby's actions with a grain of salt, and doesn't question too much on what is going on.

But Shelby better watch out, since Fletcher is becoming the apple of some of the girls' eyes in her school. Who could resist a guy that is the perfect gentlemen, knows where to eat, and can sing karaoke without getting embarrassed? Boy troubles continue when Becca and Amber fall for Jon, the very cute and very artsy guy.

Aside from all the love drama, the Queen Geeks are hoping to take their social club to higher levels. Becca is fancying up the website and entering it into a web contest, hoping that their club will get better and even more publicity. Then there is their Geekfest talent show where all sorts of talents, both plain and weird, can be showcased. And, of course, we can't forget about the assembling of the Geektastic Four, co-created by Jon, for the Comic Con competition. Four girls, with four superpowers. There is Smart-tastic, Organize-i-tastic, Art-tastic and Vege-tastic.

The Queen Geeks are stronger than ever and here to stay. So long as the one thing they never worried about, BOYS!, doesn't take over their brains.

Charming, intriguing, satisfying, hilarious, candid, attention-grabbing, witty, defining, and smart, QUEEN GEEKS IN LOVE is basically great! Every single character that we all came to love, from Shelby to Euphoria, is back and better than ever. With even more problems and the hilarious actions that go along with them, Laura Preble takes us deeper into the world of some pretty crazy girls. Who said that sequels could never be as good as the first? Let's just hope that there is a sequel for the sequel!
