โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

Even though I kept hearing great things about Geek Girl, I never really happened to read it. A month ago, my teen sister borrowed the whole Geek Girl series and told me this is something I must check off my list. And here I am one month later – loving the first book!

Geek Girl tells the story of a young teen Harriet, who is a geek and gets bullied at her school. She might know all the science answers, but she has no clue why people are laughing at her when she goes outside with a cartoon hoodie.

But when Harriet gets discovered by a modelling agency,she realises how things can get different, and she has to choose whether she wants to risk losing everything by changing who she really is.

A very funny and geeky read, where I couldnโ€™t stop but giggle a few times. One moment really got me though:

โ€˜โ€™If somebody offers to shave your legs,โ€™โ€™ she snaps, โ€˜โ€™let them.โ€™โ€™

Harriet is a typical geeky high-school character, and you canโ€™t help but love her weirdness, her silliness and the ways she believes in.

The read was somewhat predictable from the beginning, and there wasnโ€™t any big plot twist or cliff-hanger, but I believe that this book didnโ€™t really want to achieve that anyways.

This was a perfect read for me to relax and enjoy reading – reminded me of my high-school days and made me remember a lot of similar moments.

I am recommending it to all of you out there – that love being different and are not afraid to stand up for yourselves, no matter how much people laugh at you.
