- Don’t Cosplay with My Heart
- written by Cecil Castellucci
- published by Scholastic (2018)
I’m gonna be honest here. This is not usually my kind of book. I’m not necessarily the target audience. But because it’s written by Cecil Castellucci, I had to give it a go.
And boy am I glad I did. (Listen to my conversation with Castellucci here.)
Don’t Cosplay with My Heart is an ode to the glorious and brutal reality of being a young nerd today. Which is a totally different thing from being a young nerd in the 80s and 90s, which hits much closer to home.
