7. Playing Tyler by TL Costa
Popular and near legendary YA author John Green once said, “Nerd girls are the world’s most underutilized romantic resource.” Ani is a geek girl, a legendary gamer and a 16-year-old Yale computer programming prodigy—basically she’s an outcast in her own right. And 17-year-old Tyler can’t focus, even when he takes his ADHD medication. Just when it seems Tyler’s life is on a collision course with a life sentence at McDonald’s, an exciting opportunity to test a flight simulator designed by Ani makes Tyler think his life might be turning around. Playing Tyler is a fast-paced thrill ride about two outcasts, young love, deception and the fight to stay alive.
