9780007489442: Geek Girl

Harriet Manners is a geek.As if the Oxford English Dictionary on her nightstand isn't enough of a clue, there are also the weird looks she gets at school, and the way no one appreciates her extensive trivia knowledge. So when her friend Nat drags her along to a fashion show and Harriet is accidentally discovered by a modeling agent, she leaps at the chance to reinvent herself.Harriet isn't sure she'll ever learn to navigate the terrifying world of high fashion--at least not without falling off a runway and embarrassing herself in front of her gorgeous new costar, Nick. But ready or not, she's about to learn whether she has what it takes to transform from geek to chic.

About the Author:

Holly Smale was unexpectedly spotted by a top London modeling agency at the age of fifteen and spent the following two years falling over on catwalks, going bright red, and breaking things she couldn't afford to replace. By the time she had graduated from Bristol University with a BA in English literature and an MA in Shakespeare, she had given up modeling and set herself on the path to becoming a full-time writer. Her novel Geek Girl was the #1 bestselling young adult fiction title in the UK in 2013, and it was short-listed for several major awards, including the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. She currently lives in London, England.

Review:

''Hilarity, deception, misunderstanding, fashion, makeup, and hairstyles . . . Quirky, likable, and geeky, Harriet is an outsider to the modeling world but possesses a natural charm that is everything the fashion world needs. Pure fun.'' --Library Journal

''Debut author Smale, a former model herself, gives Harriet an instantly appealing narrative voice, full of discursions and self-deprecation - wisecracking, down-on-her-luck Harriet is easy to warm to. If the ugly duckling turned swan is cliché, both Smale and Harriet know it . . . Uproarious.'' --Publishers Weekly

''A smart, sassy, and very funny debut.'' --Bookseller

''I loved Geek Girl. Wise, funny, and true, with a proper nerd heroine you're laughing with as much as at. Almost.'' --James Henry, writer for Smack the Pony and Green Wing

''Delightfully quirky.'' --Bliss magazine
