Ana’s parents keep her on a very short leash. She’s a senior, captain of the quiz bowl team and champion archer. Now Mrs. Brinkham has persuaded Zak, total slacker, to fill the vacancy on the quiz bowl in semifinal competition. This do-nothing could seriously wreck all Ana’s hard work. What could she possibly have in common with Zak?
If you like cosplay, you will be amused by the visit to a convention, which happens to be going on in the same city as the quiz bowl event. It’s a new experience for Ana but a familiar place to Zak.

Huh? All the people in this area who attend the cons religiously [hopefully not the new cannabis con, though] and still these books are on the shelves - - for comic, sf and dragon convention types everywhere!
A most delightful book, incorporating elements of unfortunate predatory capitalistic parenting most of us have witnessed at one time or another. Good to read something with at least a partial happy ending!
