Geek Charming: Film and Novel

Geek Charming, the movie from the Disney Channel, is based on Robin Palmer's novel of the same name. I mentioned it in today's other post, so I wanted to share the trailer here since I failed to discover it last year. (Despite all efforts, I miss so much here!) And, yes, it is inspired by the Frog Prince. The book is also bargain priced right now in paperback, so if these type of retellings are some of your favorites, don't miss this one!


Book description while we're here:

Dylan Shoenfield is the princess of L.A.'s posh Castle Heights High. She has the coolest boyfriend, the most popular friends, and a brand-new "it" bag that everyone covets. But when she accidentally tosses her bag into a fountain, this princess comes face-to-face with her own personal frog: self-professed film geek Josh Rosen. In return for rescuing Dylan's bag, Josh convinces Dylan to let him film her for his documentary on high school popularity. Reluctantly, Dylan lets F-list Josh into her A-list world, and is shocked to realize that sometimes nerds can be pretty cool. But when Dylan's so-called prince charming of a boyfriend dumps her flat, her life - and her social status - comes to a crashing halt. Can Dylan - with Josh's help - pull the pieces together to create her own happily-ever-after?
