Review: Geek Girl by Holly Smale

Geek Girl by Holly Smale

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What you shouldn’t expect from this book

– A complex read with lots of teenage angst, dealing with realistic day-to-day life in a way that tugs at emotions.

What you can expect:

– A humorous account of an unlikely situation, for an unlikely person.

– A fairytale-like romance where the geek finds her Prince Charming.

– A story that tackles the issue of bullying in a way that makes you think as an afterthought.

Harriet Manners is a geek. When she is accidentally spotted and offered a modelling deal, her life is turned upside down. The only problem is that no one else seems to realize this.

Written in a hilarious narrative, riddled with random facts and quotable one liners, this book is in one word: easy.

It’s the book you might consider giving to younger teens. Geek Girl touches on the topics of bullying in a way that comes off as light, but still showing how much it can affect people. I liked that.

But it isn’t just for teens, though. The random facts, the humor and of course the swoon worthy guy, was all pretty awesome for me too. Plus, it was just plain fluff. A feel good book that might serve as an appetizer in between two heavier books.

Recommended for: Everyone. You and you, and you over there. Chances are there’s something you’ll enjoy in this book. And if you don’t, you might know someone who would. I honestly believe that this kind of book is a need, and I’ll probably end up throwing this as my sister at the first given moment.
