Geek Girl (Geek Girl #1)-Holly Smale

Ages: 11+

Harriet Manners knows a lot of things.

She knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear and that the average person laughs 15 times per day. What she isn’t quite so sure about is why everyone at school dislikes her. So when she’s spotted by a top model agent, Harriet grabs the chance to reinvent herself. However as she veers from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, she begins to realize that the world of fashion doesn’t seem to like her any more than the real world did.

As her old life starts to fall apart, the question is: will Harriet be able to transform herself before she ruins everything?

Which series will you be picking up to bring in 2017?
