Holly Smale - Author

About the Author

One of the World Book Day 2015 Authors . Holly Smale is the author of the Geek Girl series. She was unexpectedly spotted by a top London modelling agency at the age of fifteen and 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 of 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.

The series concludes with Forever Geek, published in hardback in March 2017.

The second sensational book in the Valentines series - a hilarious and heart-aching story about the impossible standards for being a girl. Be yourself but, you know, someone else . . .

Faith Valentine has it all - fame, money and extraordinary beauty. But what she wants more than anything is a quiet life away from the cameras. Except nobody ever asks Faith what she wants, and her family's expectations are crushing her. The world thinks she's perfect, but is there is more to perfection than meets the eye?

My name is Harriet Manners, and I have always been a geek. The fourth book in the award-winning GEEK GIRL series. Harriet Manners knows many things. She knows that toilet roll was invented by the Chinese in 600 AD. She knows that a comet's tail always points away from the sun. And she knows that the average healthy heart beats 70 times per minute. Even when it's broken. But she knows nothing about making new friends at Sixth Form. Or why even her old friends seem to be avoiding her. And she knows even less about being a glittering supermodel success. Which she now is - apparently. Has Harriet's time to shine like a star finally arrived, or is she about to crash and burn?
