Sincèrement. Je préfère savoir que lors d’un éternuement, tous les organes s’arrêtent, le coeur compris, qu’une cuillerée à café d’étoile à neutrons pèse des milliards de tonnes, ou que le merle bleu ne voit pas la couleur bleue. C’est sûrement pour ça que je n’ai pas beaucoup d’amis et qu’un «fan» a écrit GEEK au marqueur rouge sur mon sac. Alors que feriez-vous à ma place si une agence de mannequin vous repérait ? Et vous proposait de passer d’intellectuelle à... top-modèle.

Having recently read several rather suspenseful and fairly serious books, Geek Girl turned out to be the perfect book to wind down with. Rather unpopular at school, geeky Harriet Manners tries to avoid being noticed by others, especially her nemesis, Alexa, and her even geekier stalker, Toby. Unfortunately, her loyalty to her best friend, Nat, lands her slap in the middle of the modeling world as well as in the center of more complications than she can deal with. I so needed to read something like this delightfully relaxing and, most of the time, hilariously funny story right now. Even the serious, leaning to the disastrous, parts of the story is written in an upbeat way that just keeps the smile hovering. Harriet is such a realistic, likable, and lifelike character, she makes the story come alive with her geeky statistics, natural doubts and fears, and often slightly off-beat observations. The even geekier Toby is absolutely lovable despite his weirdly accomplished role as Harriet's stalker. Even Harriet's sometimes-less-than-completely-honest father, and her stern lawyer stepmother, turned out to be characters that I felt sad to say good bye to at the end of the book. Nick, Harriet's deliciously handsome co-model, comes across as a flighty, slightly untouchable character at first. Fortunately, the young man redeems himself towards the end of the story. For a lighthearted, relaxing read full of laugh-out-loud humor and wickedly sharp wit, I recommend Geek Girl as an absolute must read. (Ellen Fritz)
