The Other Normals by Ned Vizzini
His parents, however, have a different idea -- and send him off to Camp Washiska Lake to experience the "real world" and interact with "normal" kids. When he gets to camp, he finds that it's not exactly what the brochure made it out to be... to say the least!
The Other Normals is a fun and fantastical look at one corner of nerd culture, and Vizzini realistically portrays the struggles and angst of growing up a social outcast. Perry's bitterness and anti-social qualities may be a bit off-putting at first, but he grows develops through the course of the novel as he is thrust into very unusual situations.
You can find The Other Normals in the VBPL catalog, along with Ned Vizzini's earlier works, including It's Kind of a Funny Story (which was also made into a movie). Readers may also enjoy Cory Doctorow's Little Brother and For the Win, along with Julie Halpern's Into the Wild Nerd Yonder.
