Into the Wild Nerd Yonder. Julie Halpern, Author. Feiwel and Friends $ ( p) ISBN It’s Jessie’s sophomore year of high school. A self-professed “mathelete,” she isn’t sure where she belongs. Her two best friends have transformed themselves. As much as I love Into the Wild Nerd Yonder, I kind of hate it, too. Seriously, this book is amazing and I’m so jealous of Julie Halpern’s writing.

Yeah, I never go. Return to Book Page. Oh man, this book. So below is my review from May 8th, At first, I didn’t really care because I had no interest in sports maybe why i didn’t make the team and shrugged it off.

I find myself a tad tiring in large doses. Well, maybe we could hang out together some other time? I never thought of it growing up – I did good in school, often liked doing my homework, read a lot, had low-key parties with my few close friends with pie-making and playing “Heroes of Might and Magic” on PC. So I’m not even sure who I would recommend this for. Symbol 1 1 Feb 27, I will say that I really appreciated that it was a youn I just came across this book again today and remember really enjoying it and thought I had written a review for it at the time.

Julie Halpern – Into the Wild Nerd Yonder

Where I wished there was more detail, there was a simple monologue of what happened without really telling me what actually happened. Somewhere around the mid-point, things improve significantly. Jessie accepts, and before she knows it she’s a nerd too – but is that really so bad?

It was tough staying with this book long enough to become interested in it. I was suddenly not part of her life.


How I wish that boys like that yondsr in my high school. Let them be and they will become the best life partners and husbands you could ever ask for. So, I thought about that a lot while reading this book. This is a girl who, upon entering her sophomore year of high school is feeling left out and left behind by her whorish and not very nice best friends.

She went off to practice and games and new friends. With books like these, ending earlier gives you much better experience. Is it…pagequestions and 15, 17, and 19? The reason I can’t give this book more than 3 stars is because of the narrator’s voice.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Apr 10, Tatiana rated it liked it Recommends it for: I didn’t think the characters were too stereotypical or too exaggerated.

The plot was fairly predictable, and by the middle of the book I had already predicted correctly how things would work out in the end, but this did not stop me from enjoying a single page. She wasn’t told that Bizza shaved her head or that Char coloured her hair black and red. What makes some people like punk music and Denny’s and other people like costumes and Dungeons and Dragons?


Otherwise, though, I was golden. Yondder I HATED it that she continued to let her “friends” use and manipulate her even after she completely realized how crappy ito were. You make your own Pikachu skirts for crying out loud!

If you go into the wild nerd yonder, can you ever come back?

He’s devoted to Jessie without being a wimp about it and their interactions are genuine and mutually caring without being saccharine. Things are changing fast. I’m sure it all has to do with politics–you want to make your book appealing to a very broad amount of people, namely teenage girls and their mothers, and so you throw the sexual tension in there because it’s hulie of got to be there, but you don’t explicitly go into it and dodge around it like you’re trying to distract people from seeing it’s there.

I think it could make a great TV show. This time five years ago I was beginning my sophomore year of high school and was beginning a relationship with my first boyfriend ever. Juli this was a sweet and charming book. I did not finish this book and I will not be finishing this book.
