Author of Wattpad sensation ‘Reasons To Love A Nerd Like Me’ has a message for YOU + get a sneaky peak with this extract

Becky Jerams cover by Kendal James no penBecky Jerams, Wattpad sensation and author of fab ‘Reasons To Love A Nerd Like Me’, has something she wants to say to all of you:

Hi Maximum Pop! Readers!

My name is Becky Jerams and my debut novel Reasons To Love A Nerd Like Me has gone from a Wattpad hit with over 2.5 million reads to an official ebook on Amazon Kindle.

The story focuses on nerdy gay teenager Scotty Williams and his rather complicated love life whilst at sixth form college in the fictional British city of Havensdale. I would love people to read my story because I have aimed to address a whole range of different topics that affect young people including bullying, prejudice and self-acceptance. My main character Scotty is not a victim, but someone who loves himself exactly the way he is, even if others can’t accept him for it.

I have had many wonderful comments and messages from teenagers around the world of all walks of life who have told me this story has helped them in some way or changed some of their opinions on certain matters. It makes me very happy to know my characters have affected people in a positive way and I would love to share my story with an even bigger audience.

If you love quirky characters, unconventional romance, headstrong female sidekicks and themes of music, pop culture and various other geeky references then please do check out my book and let me know what you think. I’d love to hear from you!

Fancy having a read at Becky’s book? Here’s the first chapter.
