 What's a geek girl to do when all's fair in love, war, and hacking ...
Stung by an epic betrayal, Camy Cavanaugh relies on the sure things: her best friend, her job as peer tutor, and her safe spot on the sidelines of life. But when she hacks into a secret, trash-talking website, it ignites a war between the sexes that won't end until the whole school is turned upside down--and Camy's world is turned inside out. 

Now the hottest girls in school refuse to date the A-List boys. But with the Homecoming dance looming, everyone from the queen bee to the girl "most likely to" pushes Camy to hook them up with guys from the nerd herd. 

And then there's quarterback, A-lister--and former crush--Gavin Madison. He hasn't spoken to Camy in three years ... but he's talking now, begging her to pair the guys on the football team with girls from the Honor Roll. 

It's a contest of wills and everything is on the line--even Camy's heart. Will she retreat to the sidelines, or will she find the courage to get back in the game?

This contemporary young adult novel won the 2016 International Digital Awards, in the Young Adult Novel category. Read on for a tech-savvy twist to Lysistrata.

About the author

 Charity Tahmaseb has slung corn on the cob for Green Giant and jumped out of airplanes (but not at the same time). She spent twelve years as a Girl Scout and six in the Army; that she wore a green uniform for both may not be a coincidence. These days, she writes fiction (long and short) and works as a technical writer for a software company in St. Paul. 


Her short speculative fiction has appeared in UFO Publishing's Unidentified Funny Objects and Coffee anthologies, Flash Fiction Online and Cicada. 

Darcy Vance is the slacker half of the author duo of Charity Tahmaseb and Darcy Vance. She didn't start writing seriously until she was 40, and didn't publish her first novel until she was 50. Even then, she needed a co-author to get the job done. 

While Charity was busy slinging corn for Green Giant and jumping out of airplanes for the Army, Darcy was busy making out with boys and perfecting the art of the doodle. She only makes out with one boy now (her husband) but she still doodles wantonly. 

Their novel, The Geek Girl's Guide to Cheerleading, was a YALSA 2012 Popular Paperback pick in the Get Your Geek On category.
