Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives, breathes, and has major feels for Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her dad. So when she sees a cosplay contest sponsored by the producers of a new Starfield movie, she knows she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, a trip to the LA premiere, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. Elle’s been scraping together tips from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck behind her stepmother’s back, and winning this contest could be her ticket out for once and for all—not to mention a fangirl’s dream come true.

Teen actor Darien Freeman is less than thrilled about this year’s ExcelsiCon. Before he was famous, he lived for conventions, but now they’re nothing but jaw-achingly long photo sessions, endless requests for autographs, and those super awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Federation Prince Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the diehard Starfield fandom has already written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, closet nerd Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.

The fangirl and the federation prince might be a galaxy apart IRL, but anything can happen once upon a con. Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, GEEKERELLA is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom.
