Close Encounters of the Girl Kind
Close Encounters of the Girl Kind
Author: Andy Robb

Fourteen-year-old Archie is a Geek to his core. In the world of role-playing games, he's a Level 5 Mage, capable of summoning the Undead. But with no rule book to navigate Life's Big Challenges – warring parents, a crass step-father, orc-like school bullies and crap hair – he's teetering on the brink...
Then a Beautiful Girl appears in his Geeky world… Despite the fact that the closest he's come to an encounter with a girl is painting an Elven miniature, Archie embarks on a Daring Quest to win her heart. Geek meets girl – what could possibly go right?
