Product description

Fourteen-year-old Archie is a geek to the core. In his role-playing games he’s a Level 5 Mage, capable of summoning the Undead. In this world, things are rather different. With no rule book or magic to help him navigate Life’s Big Challenges – warring parents, a crass stepfather, orc-like school bullies and rubbish hair – he spends his days teetering on the brink. And then a Beautiful Girl appears in his geeky world. Despite the fact that the closest he’s ever come to an encounter with a girl is painting an Elven miniature, Archie embarks on a Daring Quest to win her heart…

“This book makes being a Geek sound pretty cool to me!” Stephen Moyer, True Blood

“A deliciously tender story that wittily captures the ecstasy and agony of being a teenager.” Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids
