This laugh-out-loud slice of British nostalgia is a funny romantic comedy that will appeal to both women and men alike. Standing amongst the best British fiction on Kindle, this warm-hearted, rock and roll romance will keep you giggling long into the night. It's 1978 and comic-collecting, TV obsessed, sci-fi geek, Gordy Brewer, dreams of transforming himself from super nerd into super cool. Being cool is the only sure way he can think of to get bazooka-boobed babe, Pippa Wilson, the object of his desires, to go out with him. But Pippa's only got eyes for her ultra trendy, extremely good-looking, git of a boyfriend. Not one to be put off, Gordy joins forces with music mad Daisy Flynn - his pretty but equally geeky best friend - and using 'The Fonz' as his guide to 'all things cool', sets out to win Pippa's affections. However, Gordy's road through this riotous, retro rom com is perilous with potholes and from disco disasters to holidays from hell he soon learns that true love comes in all shapes and sizes - not just in a 'D' cup. This nostalgic geek romance is a fun-filled romp through the fashion fails, scare cuts and growing pains of small town life in the 70s and 80s proves that nerds can be cool after all!
