***Cianna #NerdGirlSunshine Review***

 Outstanding read! Madison really delivered with this novel, and it has definitely made me want read other books by him. He’s got a fluid writing style and really is able to find the heart of a story and draw the reader into it. I loved it from the beginning, every page, until the end.

Lucas is a perfect hero. He’s clever, he’s funny, and he’s a geek. He’s average and normal, and he is just perfect for this story and everything that happens! I love that the action in this story continues on at a high level throughout the novel. We’ve been thrown into it quite quickly, and we’re completely engrossed.

As a YA novel, I felt Madison Daniel did a great job with his character development and story. So many times YA authors let things slip because they are writing for a younger audience, but not Daniel. He has this story running like a well oiled machine, it’s got strong characters, and a great developed adventure story with technology and an awesome soundtrack! (I mean, seriously, who takes all that time to sync up a book and a soundtrack! It rocked, literally) He wrote a story I would happy give copies to every geek friend I have. I’m 25! I related to this story just as well as a teen would. That’s a sign of great writing.

I hear there’s a sequel in the works, and I’m very excited. If you like technology, music, geeks, video game or a strong story with great characters, you need to read this book. I am mad it took me so long to get through it! It was awesome!
