Geek Girl

Those of you who dip your toes into the ocean that is Twitter may have noticed me mentioning a book for silly, soppy girls, called Geek Girl, by Holly Smale. In the interests of full disclosure, I have to say right now that I met Holly at the Harper Collins Summer Party last week and, well... she's kind of besotted with me. It's a thing, it happens, it's perfectly natural, so let's all move past it without making Holly feel at all self-conscious.

Thank you.

I exchanged a few tweets with her a few weeks ago, then visited her twitter page. I figured if she was half as funny in her book as she is on twitter, it'd be a book worth reading. So I bought it, and I've just finished it.

My Review of Geek Girl

Geek Girl is a book about a girl who is a geek. There are no ninjas in it. Virtually no one dies. There are two haircuts (one planned, one not). There are bizarre characters. There is one tremendously awful bully that makes you want to punch the page. There are clothes and shoes.

And DESPITE all the lack of bloodshed... this book is brilliant.

Harriet is 15 years old. She's a geek. She likes facts and figures and doing her homework. She's not exactly popular in school. She's just... weird. Her mind works in unusual ways. When she's plucked from her life and told she's going to be a model she thinks everything is going to get better— she's going to change and suddenly be cool and have friends...

There are lines in this book that will make you laugh out loud. There are jokes. One liners. Gags. Set ups and payoffs. It may deal with popularity (or lack of same), and it may deal with bullying, and insecurity, and it may play with the myth of metamorphosis... but even when Harriet is at her most vulnerable, she is never less than hilarious.

If it helps, you can think of Harriet as the younger sister to Clarabelle, in the Skulduggery books. She is, literally, THAT weird. And THAT loveable.

I would rate this book eight fish out of eight.


But please, let's not mention how much Holly fancies me. It's just... it's embarrassing.

(A sidenote, though... I hate to be a spoiler of it all, but it was fun when random conversations turned into roleplays, like say when Ieni stole my arm... I don't want that to be gone...)

#ChaseForBook9

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

Talking: People who want to roleplay have now resumed the roleplay, Zaf. I'm just going to hold off for a bit longer until I can get a response from Star, because I want to respect her powder-thing.

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright (Ink!) - talking (UNTIL I DECIDE TO EPICLY ROLEPLAY LIKE AN EPIC PERSON, MWAHAHAHAHA) said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NOT FIRST! D:

I dedicate to chatting, I love you, and epci roleplaying, you're epic. XD

I also dedicate to the fact we could reach a solution. You guys are all utterly amazing. I have said it before so you may just ignore this - but think about it. If you were at school, would both parties have been able to sit down, look at things from the other side, calmly discuss it, and decide on a solution? HELL NAW. We're all very sensible, understanding, mature an utterly damn nice people, and DON'T YOU FORGET IT. Feel proud, insignificant humans beings. Feel proud that you managed to impress me very slighlty even though you cannot compare to my jepic bubbliness. :)

(THAT IS THE MOST MEANINGFUL SPEECH I CAN MAKE? WHAT THE HELL WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME. OH WELL, I CAN BLAME IT ON MY BRAIN BEING EATEN BY YELLOW SHOWER CURTAINS. XD)

Star Inkbright (Ink!) - talking (UNTIL I DECIDE TO EPICLY ROLEPLAY LIKE AN EPIC PERSON, MWAHAHAHAHA) said...

@Aretha: Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry, I completely forgot!

It's different with every person, but when it's all in him, it's be continual and not ebb and flow, I think. I'm not sure when it'll wear off, but if I bring Hunter on now he can take it off (he can't convert it into something else, but . . . oh, never mind, I'll lt him explain) and then he can try to heal Coco. I still don't know whether it'll work or not, I'm playing it by ear. XD Hunter'll tell you all it'll work, but he doesn't know either, and he'd always rather reassure people beacuse he has it in the bakc of his mind that if it falls flat on its face he can just kill everyone.
*thinks* I think the box might last a few days. Not many days.
Yes.

But I'll bring Hunter on now.

Ari I can help....I know of a few sigils that can give him his strength

Star Inkbright (Ink!) - talking (UNTIL I DECIDE TO EPICLY ROLEPLAY LIKE AN EPIC PERSON, MWAHAHAHAHA) said...

HI RHYDIAN!

Btw, if you want to roleplay, you have to make your display name say so, and if you want to just talk, ditto. :)

WE JUST DECIDED AND WE'RE TRYING IT OUT SO PEOPLE HOPEFULLY DON'T GET IGNORED.

Danke, guys. :)

So, can I join in?
What's happening?

Hunter - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

Hello.

*looks around for Niccolo, who is apparently Niccolo, because apparently he's as screwed up as I am*

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

Aretha, Nikola Tesla is you and Coco's ship name.

Fabi ☂Talking, at the moment☂ said...

(Nice ded, Star)

#ChaseForBook9

Hunter - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

Talking: @Flame: Well, it's a long story, but basically, Niccolo is Aretha's character who's discipline is stealing people's true names (and therefore also their magic powers). However, he recently got taken over by the strongest of his true names, Alastair, who is a sadistic mass-murderer who's aim in life is to cause suffering. He started dying because long story, and then let Niccolo take over because it would hurt us more to watch him dying. I gave them RedRays, which is this torture substance, to make him die slowerer and now I'm going to try and save him [I'm also Star's character who is awesome, btw.]

#ChaseForBookNine

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

Talking: Do you guys mind if I ask other people to do the explaining for this one? It's tricky for me with two characters- but if everyone else is busy, that's ok too, I can deal.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

*falls to her knees next to Niccolo* Hang in there....*places her hand on his forehead*
He's disrupted again... All those souls in there are restless.

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

So, who can I kill?

*draws sword*

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

*stares* We have a ship name? Wait, what?

*runs back over to tree* *in scolding tone* You could have waited just a bit longer for that, you know. Why are you so determined... No, never mind. Just try to breathe.

#ChaseForBook9

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

*glances back at Flame* Well, nobody, at the moment.

Aretha, can he even hear us?
*glances at him*
Don't try anything like that again, kay? Ducktor's orders. (Ish)

Elder Zafira Kerias (Roleplaying) said...

ALEXIS!!!! *hugs Coco and smiles*

Niccolo thank you...

*badks away and holds Alexis close*

Alexis: momma! *cries*

I got you Alexis

*sits in tree holding her close*

Niccolo Croatoan- roleplaying said...

*starts to speak and coughs up more blood instead* *attempts to regulate breaths, but fails miserably*

Hunter - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

Star: Talking: I'll talk to you also if you give me something to babble about, Fabiness! :)

Back to roleplay and Hunter: Hey, Niccolo. *puts hand on his shoulder* *draws RedRays from me to him* Ow. *sucks in breath* *sits down and tries not to hallucinate*

You ma be wondering why I'm speaking cohertently. Like I said, I'm used to them. More times you do it, beter you get. One day, maybe it'll stop hurting. *stores all the RedRays in my hand so maybe I can put up with it*

Okay. *grabs energystick, which is essentailly a giant battery full of electricity, and tries to hael Niccolo*

*draws force still tearing his cells apart out and converts it, damaging my cells as I do so* *tries to start repairing everything*

. . . This may take a while . . . *shuts up*

*closes eyes* *tries to stay focused through sea of pain and energy and tiredness* *keeps drifting out and forgetting what I'm doing*

#ChaseForBookNine

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

Um, I'm not sure... I think he can, but there's really no way of knowing... He hasn't said anything to me telepathically, either, but I think that's just because he's too exhausted to manage even that...

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias (Roleplaying) said...

*looks up at Hunter*

What if we kill him? I can easily bring him back and usually if a mage dies and a Necromancer brings them back the dead guy comes back normal

Hunter - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

*stops healing and falls back against grass* *picks up phone, hardly aware of what I'm doing, and presses 5* Ez.

Ez.

Help.

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

Niccolo, don't speak. I'm going to hit you if you do.

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

*stares at Zaf* I really don't think killing him is a good idea. Let's just see if what Hunter is doing will work.

#ChaseForBook9

RP: Dalek, please. Whatever the two are going to do... We have to help calm the souls inside so they don't completely kill him

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

*takes Dalek's hands, and puts them on one of Niccolo's shoulders*

It's going to hurt a bit, keeping his souls at rest, so be prepared. Just try to keep them all straight and don't let them hide anywhere.

*closes her eyes and concentrates*

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

Aretha... Think you can handle Hunter?

*chops Niccolo open in the same why, takes his heart out, grabbing the veins and arteires around it first so they don't ping back into his flesh beacuse then you can't get them to connect up again* *grab's Hunter's quatre of a heart and puts it in, supplying enegry as I do so* *watchs as it seals* *moans in pain from slightly contact with RedRays*

*can speak* Wow.

Adra, I'll grant you three wishes. Sky's below the limit.

*breathes, in and out, steadily* Adra, can I kidnap you?

Okay, you won't have noticed, but as I was drinking more ethermelt, the concentration in my blood was increasin. See, my veins are all black . . . no I'm not a Remnant. And so . . . that's help him, beacuse the heart takes blood and oxygen EVERYWHERE in his body. The only thing is, blood types. I'm O negative, beacuse I'm awesome,and the ethermel can make that positive, beacuse it's awesome, but if it's anything else, the ethermelt will try to deal but he could die. Also, it may not work, buT I'm pretty damn out of energy, so let's hope. *watches Niccolo to see if he improves, deproves or starts screaming.

Ez? *taps her on back* Um . . . thanks.

Ember: Ez and Hunter, that's awesome. Maybe you could teach me how to do that when this is all over?

Oh my god... Dalek, one of them's inside me... *shudders*
Get the hell out of me. *concentrates again*

Talking: Trip when you role play but 'roleplaying' in your name when you arent put 'talking'

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

Well, Trip, I don't know yet. Hunter and Ez did something, but I'm still not sure what, and I still don't know what will happen to him now...

#ChaseForBook9

Hunter - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

Well, either he's going to sit up after a few mintues completely healed, or he's going to die. He may just stop breathing and die just like that, or he may start writhing in agony and then die, or he may just start scraming and then die. I don't really know. *takes phone out of pocket* *absorbs energy from it, running the battery out* *checks Niccolo* Okay, his cells are moslty healed. That's a good sign. However, say he lives, he'll be ill for quite a few days.

You can't do it. See, you couldn't have done that without the RedRays freezing us, otherwise we'd've just died outright. Also, you need the ethermelt. The reason my heart is better than his is because mine was full of ethermelt, which is essentially energy in another form, and so his heart will pump it around his body and it'll help him, beacuse it'll automatically start healing him. After a while, of course, it will be all spent up.

Anything else, just ask. :)

(Damn, internet failing . . . sorry if this posts late. )

Okay Zaf, good idea.

Roleplaying.

So Niccolo may wake? Good I owe him the biggest hug I ever thought to give

NO ADRA * moves to adra and sends energy through*

Fabi ☂Roleplaying, but I'll talk if anyone needs me☂ said...

Talking/babbling: I keep crying from these songs... I should put on another playlist...

dalekwho-rp said...

* energy attacks spirit inside* I can't keep this up for...

Trip Castalan the Hobbit Lord - Roleplaying said...

What's going on with Adra?

#ChaseForBook9

Hunter - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

Talking: Star: @Trip: We had a MASSIVE debate on the last page baout roleplaying and talking, beacuse some people were getting ignored and needed help but didn't receive it, so this is our solution.
If it doesn't work, we'll debate again. :)

I may make Ez go. I'm sort of being three people at once. XD

#ChaseForBookNine

Trip Castalan the Hobbit Lord - Roleplaying said...

Spirits? Energy? I can help, what am I attacking?

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias (Roleplaying) said...

Trip I dunno but Alexis is back and asleep in my tree

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

*growls* How about you focus on NOT getting yourself attacked, Dalek. *grimaces as her muscles lock*
*her body jerks* Well this is new...
*she jolts again* Jesus I'm going to kill him*

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

Oh, ok. *attempts to appear calm, but is actually in total panic mode* So I guess we just... Wait. *stares blankly at nothing*

Talking: So, what exactly do you mean by sick? Sorry for asking so many annoying questions, I just want to make sure I'm respectful of all the stuff your characters are doing, since I don't really understand it.

#ChaseForBook9

dalekwho-rp said...

Talking: a spirit is stuck inside hwr, trip

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

Three of them, actually. So QUIT TALKING TO ME SO I CAN CONCENTATE

dalekwho-rp said...

The energy is me, I'm attacking the spirit

Trip Castalan the Hobbit Lord - Roleplaying said...

Talking: What kind of spirit? Malicious, ghost, human, animal, controlling?

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright (Ink!) - talking said...

@Fabi: Sometimes crying at songs is good, though. Makes you aware of the world and helps you do stuff. :)
On the other hadn - NO NO NO NO NO THE FABI MUST NOT BE SAD! D: *hugs*
YOU BE TOO JEPIC TO BE SAD. :)
Haha, I told my Jeff friend that if she liked jepic could stand from Jeff-epic. XD

Roleplay: FIVE SECONDS, ARETHA. *clicks on Hunter*

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

One of the ones inside Niccolo, Trip. It went from his form to mine. *glares at Niccolo* I'm really going to slap you now, hoor.

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

Adra, could he pull them back? Like, would that even be possible with what you're doing?

#ChaseForBook9

Fabi ☂Talking☂ said...

[hugs back]

I think it's good crying. They're just...beautiful.

[I don't think there's anything for me to do in the roleplay just now.]

#ChaseForBook9

Hunter - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

@Aretha: Well, sick as in ordinary being ill. Fever, sore throat, feeling tired, possibly being sick. It's like when a virus or bacteria damages your cells with toxins. :)

Or maybe that should be an unhappy face. D:

#ChaseForBookNine

Trip Castalan the Hobbit Lord - Roleplaying said...

Well I can help quite easily with that, it's the same thing I did with the remnant.

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias (Roleplaying) said...

I think something happened when my shadows rebounded on me....the cuts are all green

Ez - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

Does anybody want me to explain it clearr? Hunter is so bad at explaining things. He just confuses people more.

Hunter? Can we, oh I don't know, GO now? It's not as if we're BUSY, is it?

#ChaseFOrBookNine

Trip Castalan the Hobbit Lord - Roleplaying said...

If you want me to, of course.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

Trip, do anything, and you could completely mess it up, killing us both.

Ari, I don't know, but I'm trying to keep the souls from Niccolo's consciousness. They're all trying to take over

Trip Castalan the Hobbit Lord - Roleplaying said...

One last question, are your souls fused?

#ChaseForBook9

dalekwho-rp said...

The energy I am creating is fighting the spirits inside adra, trip

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

*takes deep breath* *voice is incredibly calm* Adra, you can let them. Even if they do, he knows how to get them out. He can handle it- I mean, he'll either be dead in a few minutes and it won't matter, or he'll be alive and even if somebody else takes over he'll be able to regain control. He's done it before. You can let go.

#ChaseForBook9

Trip Castalan the Hobbit Lord - Roleplaying said...

I can help Dalek, it's what I do.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

*looks cautiously at Aretha* If I let go... More will get inside me as well. *shakes head* I don't know if I can.

Star Inkbright (Ink!) - talking said...

@Fabi: I love that kind of crying. :)

Ohmygosh, my friend and her sister invented this story (they haven't written it out) where there was this girl who could heal people, but when she healed them, she got what she had healed them of - so if they had a broken finger and she healed them,s he would have a broken finger.
And there was this sadistic murderer person, and he killed somebody.
He wsn't quite dead, he was dying.
And she didn't heal him, beacuse then she would be dying, but she healed the murderer, mentally, so he wasn't sadistic anymore, beacsue she didn't want him to kill people.
But then of course she was sadistic and a murderer, and she was a horrible person, and she got locked up as a lunatic and never beacme a nice person ever again and killed people and was hated, all beacuse she'd wanted to make the world a better place.
I WAS MIND-BLOWN.

I SO WISH I'D MADE THAT UP.

#ChaseForBookNine

dalekwho-rp said...

Thanks trip

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

*keeps voice dangerously calm* Trip, she said if you tried, you could get them both killed. Please refrain.

#ChaseForBook9

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

*addresses Adra again* Is there any way you can pull out? Because if there is, you should do it. Like, now.

#ChaseForBook9

Trip Castalan the Hobbit Lord - Roleplaying said...

Not necessarily. Only if their souls are fused. If they're fused it's far too dangerous, but if not then it's entirely safe.

#ChaseForBook9

Hunter - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

. . . I would offer to help, but I don't see how I can. *lies down on floor staring at sky* *closes eyes* So tired.

If you want me to do anything, I'm here.

I can't interact mentally, though.

#ChaseForBookNine

Fabi ☂Talking☂ said...

Whoa. That's a cool plot, actually.

#ChaseForBook9

Ez - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

Pretend he took that back. YOu don't want to be in his head, no way.

*taps Hunter* We going?

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

I don't know, Ari... I don't know if they're fused or not. But they're powerful as hell.

Trip Castalan the Hobbit Lord - Roleplaying said...

But are they fused to /you/?

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright (Ink!) - talking said...

@Fabi: IKR. I ALMOST CRIED. BUT SEEING AS HOW I CRY EVERY SINGLE TIME SHE MENTIONS ONE OF HER STORIES (Jason and Jess and that), I DECIDED NOT TO.

My friend: Are you crying?
Me: No.
Friend: Your eyes are all watery.
Me: *thinks* OKAY THAT MIGHT HAVE FAILED. XD

Sort of thanks but not, Fabi, because I can't really thank you when I didn't think of it. :P My friend wants to write it out but doesn't know how . . .

Niccolo Croatoan- roleplaying said...

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

*grimaces* Ow..

Hunter - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

@Ez: You know, it's a good thing we didn't try to cut and stick your heart, beacuse YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE, YOU HORRIBLE PERSON.

@Everyone else: Can't Niccolo take the soul back off her when he's in his right mind if he doesn't die? If not, can't you dwell on it then?

#ChaseForBookNine

Elder Zafira Kerias (Roleplaying) said...

*watches Niccolo waiting for him to be awake*

C'mon Coco I actually like you

@Niccolo pulling souls back into himself: LIKE THAT. :)

@Zaf: I thought you shipped Adra with him? XD
OR WAS THAT DENIAL?

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark -RP said...

(Talking: bye Fabi!)
*groans* hang on... one of them's holding on...

Aretha Tesla- roleplaying said...

Response to @Everyone: He certainly could, but the problem is we still don't know whether or not he'll die, and if he does die then Adra is stuck with whoever is inside of her, and that's just not fun. At least that's my concern, I don't know about everyone else.

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright (Ink!) - talking said...

:( FOURS, FABI!!! :(

Okay, I think I'm purely roleplaying unless there's anyone to talk to, because I'd like to talk but I kind of can't by myself.

Hunter I prefer him over Alastair...excuse me I have a greenish slash issue

See, the problem you guys have is, you can't sacrifice a few for the saving of them all. *sighs* *thinks*

*slaps Adra, beacuse that's what Ez does to me all the time to fix me and it sometimes works*

No these are where my shadows rebounded and cut me...I got them cleaned up but they turned green and hurt

Ez - roleplaying (DUH. DON'T YOU THINK I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD IN MY TIME?) said...

If you want me, I guess I'm unwillingly here.

@Aretha: My concerns don't corncern myself with you guys. No offense, but all this has been resolved for years as far as I'm concerned and I do not see the point. *lies down and stares at sky*

#ChaseForBookNine

Trip Castalan the Hobbit Lord - Roleplaying said...

Wow... it's a shame you guys can't see this, all those souls of different colours swirling around Niccolo, going in one by one. It's amazing.
