Geek Girl #1: Geek Girl

Harriet’s first adventure: the geek-chic classic you all want to be seen with! Know-it-all Harriet has no friends, but she’s got brains – and beauty, too. When she’s spotted by a top model agency, can she go from class geek to catwalk superstar? Harriet Manners knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear and that a ‘jiffy’ lasts 1/100th of a second. Here are some things she doesn’t know. 1) How to be normal. 2) Why nobody likes her. So when Harriet is spotted by a modelling scout, she grabs the chance to become popular. There’s only one problem: the snooty world of fashion doesn’t seem to like her any more than the real world does. (But you’ll fall in love.)
