Reviews

A smart, sassy and very funny debut. The Bookseller Loved GEEK GIRL. Wise, funny and true, with a proper nerd heroine you're laughing with as much as at. Almost. James Henry, writer of Smack the Pony and Green Wing A feel-good satisfying gem that will have teens smiling from cover to cover, and walking a little taller after reading - Books for Keeps I would highly recommend Geek Girl to anyone who likes a good laugh and enjoys a one-of-a-kind story.

About the Author

Holly Smale

One of the World Book Day 2015 Authors and March 2015 Author of the Month. Clumsy, a bit geeky and somewhat shy, Holly Smale spent the majority of her teenage years hiding in the changing room toilets at school, scraping abuse off her belongings. After she was unexpectedly spotted by a top London modelling agency at the age of fifteen, nothing changed at all: she spent the following two years falling over on catwalks, going bright red and breaking things she couldn’t afford to replace.

By the time Holly had graduated from Bristol University with a BA in English Literature and an MA in Shakespeare she had given up modelling and set herself on the path to becoming a writer.

Geek Girl was the no. 1 bestselling young adult fiction title in the UK in 2013. It was shortlisted for several major awards including the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Branford Boase award, nominated for the Queen of Teen award and won the teen and young adult category of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize and the 11-14 category of the Leeds Book Award.
