Geek + runway = a runaway UK hit! Geek Girl is the first book in a hilarious, internationally bestselling series that's perfect for fans of Louise Rennison and The Princess Diaries.Harriet Manners is a geek. She always has been, and she thought she always would be—but when she's discovered by a modeling agent, she leaps at the chance to reinvent herself. There's only one problem: Harriet is the definition of awkward. Can she transform from geek to chic?

Why Am I Waiting?

I have been waiting to get my hands on a copy of “Geek Girl” for what seems like forever. “Geek Girl” was released in the UK but now it is finally coming to the US. I am so excited. “Geek Girl” sounds like an absolutely fantastic novel and I can’t wait to get my hands on it and dive right in. The story sounds similar to Princess Diaries. Even though I never read Princess Diaries, I loved the movies. I really can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for this novel, so you will just have to take my work for it.
