In recent years, male geeks have taken the world by storm: They've become unexpected sex symbols (Seth Rogen and Michael Cera); they've penned pieces of literary brilliance (Rest in peace, David Foster Wallace); they've even reinvented the art of modern cinema (Kudos, Coen brothers!) But what about their female counterparts? After all, fangirls are just like fanboys - they put on their imperial stormtrooper Lycra pants one leg at a time. "Geek Girls Unite" is a call to arms for every girl who has ever wondered where her rebel sisters have gone. It's also a sassy, savvy celebration of all the women who are busy bucking convention and making the world a smarter, better, and, yes, cooler place. Each chapter is dedicated to a crosssection of the geek elite-fangirls, music fanatics, bookworms, craft mavens, funny girls, film buffs, and others - and looks at groundbreaking women, geek hall-of-famers, ultimate love matches, and most likely frenemies. Along with fun quizzes, illustrations, and trivia boxes, each group also gets tailored recommendations for playlists, books, movies, and websites. Fun, funny, and ultimately empowering, this is the perfect book for women of any age who've felt like they're on the outside looking includes.

Review:

“Geek Girls Unite is the ultimate guide for any girl who identifies with the geekier side of life. It’s a hilarious must-read look into the modern geek and what makes her so cool!” (comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates)

“While geekdom has long been portrayed in pop culture as a boys’ club, Simon catalogues the wide variety of geek girls in this entertaining look at embracing nonconformity...a worthy endeavor.” (Publishers Weekly)

Tina Fey worshipper Leslie Simon crowdsources media obsessions from a ‘guild’ of like-minded women to assemble this peppy survey of comedy, literary, film and music icons, all the while evangelizing on behalf of misfit females. (Wired.com)

From the Back Cover:

What do Amy Poehler, Bjork, Felicia Day, Martha Stewart, Miranda July, and Zooey Deschanel have in common? They’re just a few of the amazing women proving that “geek” is no longer a four-letter word.

In recent years, male geeks have taken the world by storm. But what about their female counterparts? After all, fangirls are just like fanboys—they put on their Imperial Stormtrooper Lycra pants one leg at a time.

Geek Girls Unite is a call to arms for every girl who has ever obsessed over music, comics, film, comedy, books, crafts, fashion, or anything else under the Death Star. Music geek girl Leslie Simon offers an overview of the geek elite by covering groundbreaking women, hall-of-famers, ultimate love matches, and potential frenemies, along with her top picks for playlists, books, movies, and websites. This smart and hilarious tour through girl geekdom is a must-have for any woman who has ever wondered where her sassy rebel sisters have been hiding.
