WAUSEON, Ohio — This week marks the nationwide release of “The Truth About Pimply-Faced Geeks,” an engrossing, new novel by author Megan Spengler.
In “The Truth About Pimply-Faced Geeks,” Abby Rivers is not prepared to be betrayed by her best friend, Claire, in the middle of her eighth-grade year. But in the blink of an eye, their friendship is over. Now, she finds herself hiding in the bathroom during lunch to avoid the humiliation of eating alone. Not only is Rivers dealing with the loss of Claire, but she’s also failing algebra. Her parents won’t allow her to play basketball, the one thing she excels in, if she doesn’t pass algebra by the time the practices start.
Rivers has to ace the big test or she’ll be sitting the bench.
In this captivating coming-of-age book, Rivers has to decide whose voice she’s going to listen to. With the help of the school loner and a past teacher, Rivers discovers what God truly thinks about her.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
