Zoe Rosenthal Is Not Lawful Good
author: Nancy Werlin
Zoe Rosenthal’s superpower is planning—and avoiding unnecessary risks. Her mental checklist goes something like this: 1) Meet soulmate: DONE! 2) Make commitment: DONE! 3) Marriage: AFTER COLLEGE. She isn’t sure which college yet, but it will have a strong political science department, since her perfect boyfriend, Simon, plans to “save the country,” as his sister says, “and the planet and everything.” And Zoe will follow, the perfect girlfriend. It’s good to have her love life checked off. But speaking of unnecessary risks, Zoe’s secretly on a plane to Dragon Con for the second season premiere of Bleeders. The show is subject to her boyfriend’s derision, and once her flirtation with fandom is over, Zoe will get back to planning a future with Simon. The trouble is, right now, Bleeders—and her fellow “Bloodygits”—may just mean the world to her. Will a single night of nerdery be enough? From best-selling and award-winning author Nancy Werlin comes a smart, breezy coming-of-age story about finding your friends—and your inconvenient self.
“A charming story of a closet nerd realizing her full potential and finding her fandom family.” —Kirkus Reviews
