    Retro Geeks is a hilariously funny short read that will also touch your heart. Karen Mueller Bryson has penned a beautiful story about two best friends who are finding their own identity apart from each other and learning to love who they are and growing in self-confidence to be proud of it.

    Molly and Ally have been best friends forever. They also have a love for the 80s. They live for the 80s in their music, dress, and hairstyle—they are retro 80s’ geeks. This is their senior year and for once Molly and Ally would like to be in with the popular teens, and they want to go to their prom with the popular hot guys, which of course are the jocks, Tank and Hank.

    Elisa is the Queen of Mean along with her want-to-be side-kick, Megan. Elisa loves to hurt others and to finish out her high school years of being queen of mean, her last mean deed to absolutely crush Molly and Ally and their hopes to go to the prom with hot guys. Elisa decides to give Molly and Ally what they want and lets them be a part of her popular group and have Tank and Hank ask them to the prom, but miss queen of mean is going to get some of her own mean back when Molly and Ally gives Elisa and Megan some long overdue karma.

    Tucker and Dylan are the two guys that have been crushing on Molly and Ally. These two guys want so badly to ask the two girls to the prom. But Molly has her mind set on her and Ally being a part of the popular kids and going to the prom with two hot jocks. I love Tucker and Dylan. These guys are great as they never let their egos get bruised and they never lose hope to take Molly and Ally to the prom.

    Retro Geeks is a wonderfully cute, fun story of two beautiful retro geek girls discovering who they are, and how to be proud of it. And also seeing that the real hot guys are just as geeky as them. I enjoyed that Bryson gives us some of the greatest hit songs of the 80s with the background story of the song artists. I recommend Retro Geeks as an awesome coming of age story and a hilarious “get even” with all the mean girls we all new in high school theme.

    A quick, quirky read!

    Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. It is a good short story, perfect for a quick read. Retro Geeks is fun and lighthearted.

    The main characters, Molly and Ally (named after the two best brat pack members, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy), are likeable geeks who love everything about the 80s. They love the music, the movies, and especially the fashion. However, the two senior girls are hopeless outcasts in their school because of their love of the 80s. Sometimes it was difficult to root for these girls...Molly in particular because she seemed to derail anything Ally wanted (i.e. Tucker) in her need to be popular. And Ally had a secret that I wished she just would have come out and told before it was too late. There was no reason for that secret!

    Of course, what story would be great without a nemesis? Elisa is the stereotypical mean girl in school. She thinks everyone loves her, wants to be her, and wants to be her friend. She gets what's hers in the end. As she should, and would, in any 80s teen flick!

    Would I recommend it: If you want a quick, quirky read, then yes, pick up this book. And the chapters are named after 80s hits. How fun is that!

    Will I read it again: I will not read this book again.
