To better understand this book one first needs to look at the meaning of the word “geek.” And according to Wikipedia it means:

“A slang term originally used to describe eccentric or non-mainstream people; in current use, the word typically connotes an expert or enthusiast or a person obsessed with a hobby or intellectual pursuit, with a general pejorative meaning of a "peculiar person, especially one who is perceived to be overly intellectual, unfashionable, or socially awkward.”

The parents of today’s children had individuals who were referred to as Geeks, and so did their parents as they were growing up. However, the violence against them was not as prolific as it is today. And while schools always had bullies even going back to the 1940’s, the issue of their presence back then is not as is in the forefront of news-worthy stories today.

The premise of this book deals with three boys: Austin, J J, and Josh, who have to deal with Ron, the new kid at school, who happens to be the quintessence of what a bully is supposed to be. They knew that violence would only beget more violence and therefore could not be the solution to the situation they had to deal. Instead, these three decided to form a club of geeks to formulate a viable solution to their situation. Since none of them were considered to be cool according to the standards of others they needed to figure out what could and would make them cool in their own right; enough that others at their school would want to join their club, and perhaps even the bully protagonist, Ron.

For having presented the subject of bullying in such an enjoyable manner I’ve given this book 5 STARS. ( )
