Review: Geek Girl by Cindy C. Bennett

Geek GirlGeek Girl by Cindy C. Bennett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"Think I can turn that boy bad?" 17-year-old Jen turns her life upside down when, out of boredom, she makes a bet that she can turn school geek Trevor into someone like her. Instead, the goth girl finds herself sucked into his world of sci-fi movies, charity work, and even-ugh!-bowling. To truly belong with him-and with her new foster family-she must first come to terms with her violent past.

A big WOOHOO goes out to Ms. Bennett for ending my book slump. Geek Girl was everything I needed in a book and more. I was in love with Cindy Bennett's Heart on a Chain and was curious to see if she could deliver again. The answer...heck to the yea!!!!

What astounded me the most was the vivid transformations taking place throughout the entire story. It's not just Jen's transformation that is so beautifully written, but the way she "sees" Trevor. It made my heart smile when his inward goodness transformed his physical appearance. You can actually watch read how he changes right before Jen's very eyes. However, did Trevor really change at all? The truth is that Jen's own personal transformation allowed her to finally see what was right in front of her the whole time. She is the one who really has changed.

I would never give a book 4 stars if it didn't have toe curling romance. All I can say is swoon (for you younger readers google the word swoon then you'll understand). I absolutely adore Trevor. I believe when writing this book Cindy Bennett must have looked up "perfect guy" in the dictionary and then used what she found there to create Trevor. He teaches Jen how to be loved, tearing down the walls that her tortured past has caused her to put up. Their relationship kept me up all night devouring the book in one sitting.

This book contains so much raw emotion filled with passion, love, and a little heartache. It contains issues dealing with abuse, drugs, and mild sexual situations. In the end, love overcomes all hurt; good triumphs. Isn't that the way it's always suppose to be though? I'll take my happy ending any day!
