★★★★

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 couldn’t stop but giggle a few times. One moment really got me though:

‘’If somebody offers to shave your legs,’’ she snaps, ‘’let them.’’

Harriet is a typical geeky high-school character, and you can’t help but love her weirdness, her silliness and the ways she believes in.

The read was somewhat predictable from the beginning, and there wasn’t any big plot twist or cliff-hanger, but I believe that this book didn’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.

She never turned back…

image

She was the type of girl that believed to everyone. She never saw the evil of people. She trusted them regardlessly. Always. And yes, she was hurt. Many, many times…

She was a girl. Knew so little about life and gave her best to satisfy the people around her. The awful thing was, nobody really cared. She gave everything she had, and no one ever said thanks.

Disappointed of life, and the evil people, she decided to change. She became this cold person on the inside, not letting anyone in. Never. Not a chance. She walk straight forward and she never turned back. That was her shield, of not being hurt. It was the easiest way!

Then someone came and fought through all the shields of protection she had. He fought for her attention and fought for her love, while showing her his! He showed her he appreciates everything she does, and for the first time, she felt worthy. He showed her the way, but the way of forward.

She never turned back, but she had a reason to move forward, because he was there, waiting for her!
