Holly Smale

Born in England on 7 December, 1981, Holly Smale is the author of the Geek Girl series and has won many awards over the course of her career.

Geek Girl was the bestselling young adult fiction title in 2013 and the series was originally meant to be a trilogy but proved so successful there will now be six books.

Holly loved reading and writing from an early age and was a model for two years from the age of 15. She did not enjoy this experience but used it as an inspiration for Geek Girl and based the main character Harrier Manners on herself. She studied English Literature at Bristol University and has travelled extensively. She taught English in Japan.

    "My name is Harriet Manners, and I am a geek." Harriet Manners knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a "jiffy" lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. She knows that bats always turn left when exiting a cave and that peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite. But she doesn't know why nobody at school seems to like her. So when Harriet is spotted by a top model agent, she grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her best friend's dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of impossibly handsome model Nick. Even if it means lying to the people she loves. Veering from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, Harriet begins to realise 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, will Harriet be able to transform herself before she ruins everything? The award-winning debut by bestselling author Holly Smale.

    "My name is Harriet Manners, and I have always been a geek." The fourth book in the award-winning GEEK GIRL series. Harriet Manners knows many things. She knows that toilet roll was invented by the Chinese in 600 AD. She knows that a comet's tail always points away from the sun. And she knows that the average healthy heart beats 70 times per minute. Even when it's broken. But she knows nothing about making new friends at Sixth Form.

Has Harriet's time to shine like a star finally arrived, or is she about to crash and burn?
