Harriet Manners is a geek.

As if the Oxford English Dictionary on her nightstand isn't enough of a clue, there are also the weird looks she gets at school, and the way no one appreciates her extensive trivia knowledge. So when her friend Nat drags her along to a fashion show and Harriet is accidentally discovered by a modeling agent, she leaps at the chance to reinvent herself.

Harriet isn't sure she'll ever learn to navigate the terrifying world of high fashion—at least not without falling off a runway and embarrassing herself in front of her gorgeous new costar, Nick. But ready or not, she's about to learn whether she has what it takes to transform from geek to chic.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A smart, sassy, and very funny debut.”


  • “Delightfully quirky.”

    Bliss magazine (UK)

  • “Debut author Smale, a former model herself, gives Harriet an instantly appealing narrative voice, full of discursions and self-deprecation—wisecracking, down-on-her-luck Harriet is easy to warm to. If the ugly duckling turned swan is cliché, both Smale and Harriet know it…Readers will thoroughly enjoy Harriet’s uproarious misadventures.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Hilarity, deception, misunderstanding, fashion, makeup, and hairstyles…Quirky, likable, and geeky, Harriet is an outsider to the modeling world but possesses a natural charm that is everything the fashion world needs. Pure fun.”

    School Library Journal

  • “A smash hit in the UK, this is a cheeky, fabulous, fun read for anyone who has dreamed of a fresh start.”


  • “Harriet is irresistible. Readers will experience love at first chapter for this geek girl who always manages to hold on to her sense of humor as she navigates the treacherous worlds of school friendships and high-fashion modeling.”


  • “A transformation comedy…The wacky humor and subtle girl-empowerment message of the Brit-chick-lit genre are on full display here.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “I loved Geek Girl. Wise, funny, and true, with a proper nerd heroine you’re laughing with as much as at. Almost.”

    James Henry, writer for Smack the Pony and Green Wing

  • Winner of the 2014 Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize for Teen Books
  • Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize

About the Author

Holly Smale was unexpectedly spotted by a top London modeling 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 she had graduated from Bristol University with a BA in English literature and an MA in Shakespeare, she had given up modeling and set herself on the path to becoming a full-time writer. Her novel Geek Girl was the #1 bestselling young adult fiction title in the UK in 2013, and it was short-listed for several major awards, including the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. She currently lives in London, England.
