What is geek girl about
Geek Girl (Geek Girl, #1) by Holly SmaleHarriet Manners knows a lot of things.
She knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a jiffy lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. What she isnt quite so sure about is why nobody at school seems to like her very much. So when shes spotted by a top model agent, Harriet grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her Best Friends dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of the impossibly handsome supermodel Nick. Even if it means lying to the people she loves.
As Harriet veers from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, she begins to realise that the world of fashion doesnt seem to like her any more than the real world did.
And as her old life starts to fall apart, the question is: will Harriet be able to transform herself before she ruins everything?
