    1. You might have to go here if it is too small for you to read it.While this book is a variation, it certainly follows Plot 4's basic structure. Jen is a foster child--she doesn't open up to people and puts up a barrier between herself and everyone else. She's been at her present school for about a year but only hangs out with a few people, all of whom could be/are considered goths or partiers. (partyers? both of these look incorrect) After a dare (saw that one coming, didn't cha?), Jen hits on "c [...]


    2. There four stars are all for the goofy smile I had on my face while I read this book. It's a light, quick read and not particularly original or ground breaking, but I'm ranking this based on my enjoyment as I read. I read it in one sitting and couldn't stop thinking about the chemistry between Jen and Trevor for the next two days.I started reading the first 10 chapters for free on the author's website after reading Erica's review, and about 12 pages in, I knew I was going to need to find a copy. [...]


    3. Just to get this part over with, I'm gonna mention what I didn't like; While the writing has some great potential, the flow and pacing to this book is way off. It felt fast and rushy in some spots while not enough punch to others. There just wasn't enough room provided in between scene which made it harder to follow and it felt predictable and not very original.but! this book made me smile. A lot!While the story has it's flaws, I still very much enjoyed reading Geek Girl.It starts off with a bet [...]


    4. Geek Girl by Cindy C. Bennett was definitely a pleasant surprise that I enjoyed despite its minor flaws. The plot has been attempted many times before and the outcome was somewhat predictable, so what I feel made this story stand out were the two main characters Jen and Trevor and their transformation. The story starts off with Jen the rebel foster kid punk making a dare with her friends that she can turn good-guy geek Trevor onto the dark side. Well as the saying goes, it’s all fun and games [...]


    5. Jen is your typical bad girl; she hangs out with a group of friends known for their reputation for partying hard, drinking, drugs and smoking. She has a typical Goth look going on that her foster family don’t really approve of; tight black clothes, red and black hair and lots of heavy make-up. She hasn’t really had a stable family relationship, her relationship with her parents was difficult and so she’s moved around quite a lot from one foster family to another. Having got stuck with a fo [...]


    6. 5 StarsI anxiously awaited this eBook after reading this authors "Heart on a Chain". This story was a bit of a slower grab for me, but once it did - WOW!This is a heart-wrenching story about a foster child; Jen Jones. Jen [Jennifer] is a 17 year old girl who has been in the foster system for years. She has developed coping mechanisms for herself which are very narcissistic and self-destructive with a low self-esteem. She wants her upper lip re-pierced and makes a "bet" to get the money to have i [...]


    7. Okay, I’m giving this book four stars because it made me laugh…a lot. And smile. If it didn’t have those sweet, funny moments, it would be three stars for it’s unoriginality. Now I did like it. I liked the story and the characters, I enjoyed reading it. It’s just nothing praise worthy. It isn’t a brilliant, beautifully written, extremely well executed, thought provoking novel. Rather it’s a sweet, funny, ah, clichéd story.Bad girl Jen, bets her friends that she could turn a geek b [...]


    8. 3.5 stars. What a cute little gem this was. At first, I thought there wasn't going to be much more to the book than the summary - rebel girl takes a bet where she not only has to hook a geek guy, but also has to get him to "come to the dark side."Before even reading the first page, my mind went to half a dozen movie plots. This story couldn't be hard to figure out, after all. I knew that the girl would fake liking the guy, until at some point, she saw what a great catch he really was. After all, [...]


    9. 5 STARS! I'm a hopeful romantic at heart, and a total sucker for YA romance. Enough said! But I guess it doesn't hurt to elaborateSo, the story starts off kind of cliche, girl plays the game but the game ends up playing her; basic, simple story line.Typical, but oh so delightfully fun.At first, Jen is your stereotypical foster-girl, bad girl "freak" goth chick. She hangs with the "bad" kids, partying, dabbling with some minor drug usage, alcohol, oh you know - typical "goth" like behavior. Then [...]


    10. Two insy-weeny-teeny requests : have a swarm of that high school feel good book butterflies eat at my insides . And please be 3.99999 stars or better :) Please and thank you !!* oh yeah this book delivered ! It took me by surprise and It was refreshing and an easy read ! ~ 4 giddy girl goofy giggle welcome to geekdom stars !!!


    11. Think I could turn that boy bad?I think the rule of thumb with make-him/her-fall-for-me bets is first to always ask yourself, 'Am I in a novel?'. If the answer is 'Yes', then you DO NOT MAKE THE BET because you will fall hard for this person and eventually, YOU WILL BE FOUND OUT. The fallout will not be pretty.When 17-year-old Jen makes a bet that she can bring 'cool geek' Trevor over to the dark side, she instead finds herself sucked into Trevor's world of family bowling, charity work and sci-f [...]


    12. 4,5Hay ciertos tipos de libros que me hacen ver lo tonta que soy. ¿Por qué? Por juzgar antes de leer. Me he topado un montón de veces con Geek Girl, pero la listilla dentro de mí pasaba de largo sólo con su portada. ¿Y qué es lo que me he encontrado en su interior? Una historia maravillosa. Me tenía atrapada desde la página 1 y no he podido soltarlo hasta que lo he terminado. Y debo decir que he quedado completamente encantada. Justo ayer pensé "Dios, ¿por qué todos los libros son ig [...]


    13. I am surprised how much I loved this. It is not my usual genre. I prefer PNR because they tend to be more intense. And this is everything I have come to expect from contemporary romance, sweet and slow and realistic, but in all the right ways. The book wastes no time and jumps right into the bet. The first line of the book is, "Think I could turn that boy bad?" Jen then proceeds to flirt with Trevor shamelessly within the first chapter, and Trevor gets all flustered and adorable. The first few c [...]


    14. Originally reviewed at toughcriticbookreviewsspoA big WOOHOO goes out to Ms. Bennett for ending my book slump. Geek Girl was everything I needed in a book and more. I was in love with Cindy Bennett's Heart on a Chain and was curious to see if she could deliver again. The answerheck to the yea!!!! What astounded me the most was the vivid transformations taking place throughout the entire story. It's not just Jen's transformation that is so beautifully written, but the way she "sees" Trevor. It ma [...]


    15. Absolutely loved this book. Loved it so much I read it in one day and stayed up until 4 AM finishing it. It was a beautiful, teenage love story and it was wonderful. I was transported back to highschool and had me giggling, excited and giddy reliving first loves. It also made me cry. But this book wasn't just straight romance, it was about love and learning how to love, to be loved, how to get through heartbreak. Jen learns to be loved and love back through the simple pure love Trevor, her foste [...]


    16. Rating: 3.75*You know those Disney-like movies with the unhappy, white American teenager, forbidden love, cheesy script, overused plot and good-looking actors that can't act and are too old for the part they're playing? I love those movies. They just make me feel good, even if slightly nauseating when the main couple express their eternal love for each other. I used to think it was stupid, but now I've come to appreciate the safe haven they provide. It's just so unrealistically corny and overdon [...]



    17. What an under-appreciated book this is. By a show of hands (or comments), who has heard of this book? It doesn’t have half the attention it deserves on and oh, does that make me even happier to share it with you guys.Jen dresses to stand out in a crowd – tight, black clothing, ruby red lips lined with black lip liner, dark hair with red chunky streaks. She’s a girl who is not easy to overlook. Imagine Trevor’s shock when she sets her eyes on him and starts popping up everywhere he is. L [...]


    18. If i can live a fictional life, i would like to be Jen. First off i'm a big, larger-than-life HUGE like really friggin huge fan of Heart on a Chain so reading another work of Ms. Bennett has been one of my missions ever since. Geek Girl did not fail me. I was so afraid that it won't live up to my expectations after HOAC, but wow it blew me away. I actually love it! The story isn't just bad girl meets geek guy. It was about how a girl found her self by trying to be as bad as she can be. Hmm was t [...]


    19. "Think I can turn that boy bad?" That opening line was the start of a bet that turned the world of Jennifer and Trevor upsidedown. And of course, as what I always read when a bet is involved in a story, it always backfires to whoever did it. So I guess there's nothing new about the plot huh? Jen, thought of an idea one day, out of her boredom, while looking at the geek group and seeing Trevor. The badass girl wants to turn a good boy into a bad one. There isn't really anything surprising about t [...]


    20. I couldn't give this book a rating of below 4. When I was younger, I have identified five qualities I'm looking from a guy for me to like him. One, he should be smart because I really admire those guys who excel academically. For me,that means he really values education more than anything else. Two, he should should know how to play a guitar and can also sing a tune so that he'll be able to serenade me, or maybe write a song for me. Three, he must have a sense of humor and this a must because I [...]


    21. There’s nothing new here, but GEEK GIRL’S easy style and quick pace are what’s gotten me out of my reading funk. *THANK GOSH!* While the story is predictable in that there’s a good guy, a not-so-good girl and an ill-conceived dare of turning one of them otherwise, it wasn’t boring. As said, she is not so good. The ‘why’ of that is a sad story all on its own. HOWEVER, I could never completely connect with her because it all just felt a tad neat, forced. Like someone saying there had [...]


    22. Una de mis mejores lecturas en lo que va del año.Estoy muy sorprendida de que este libro haya sido así de bueno, no le tenía mucha fe.Lo empecé porque Cindy Bennett no me había decepcionado con Heart On A Chain, entonces decidí confiar en la autora una vez más, por más que la sinopsis de Geek Girl no me parecía tan interesante. Y finalmente, Bennett no me decepciono.Real que es una historia muy hermosa. A medida que pasan las páginas el libro mejora y mejora, en ningún momento empeora [...]


    23. Cedar Fort acquired a real indie gem with Geek Girl. I first read Geek Girl back in March when it was self-published, and I burned through it in a matter of hours. Talk about flowCindy C. Bennett's writing is addictive and all-consuming and emotionally gripping. And she ALWAYS makes me cry.I initially gave Geek Girl four stars, but as I re-read it now that it's been published, I'm upping it to five. Out of everything I've read this year, this is one of those stories that has just stayed with me. [...]



    24. Bet you will like this book! Jen, Goth girl, bets her fellow Goth'ers she can turn straight-laced, nerdy boy Trevor…I mean Trev, bad. The prize for winning? A lip piercing paid for by her buddies. Trev is surprised by Jen's new found fascination of him. He has reservations about her motive, but he is just too nerdy to think this Goth girl has dishonorable intentions.And so the fun begins.Ms. Bennett has a gift. Geek Girl is fun, witty, enchanting, and wonderful. I laughed, nodded in agreement, [...]


    25. No estoy segura de cómo me siento en este instante Creo que ¿decepcionada? ¿Desilusionada? Pero no por el libro sino porque terminó!!!! Estoy desilusionada porque es TAN CORTO! Hubiera querido poder leerlo para siempre! Lo amé y todo el mundo TIENE QUE leerlo! (sí, puede que esté exagerado un poco, pero poquito).Es uno de los libros MÁS TIERNOS QUE LEÍ EN MI VIDA! No es empalagoso sin embargo pero es que los dos son tan, TAN queribles. No hay forma de no encariñarse con ellos. Los ador [...]


    26. Cindy C. Bennett's "Geek Girl" is a story of love in several dimensions - learning to love oneself, learning to love within a family and learning to love a significant other. I love reading stories where young adult characters come to terms with the reality around them, form relationships, and learn from their mistakes. It certainly helps that Jen is an identifiable leading young woman within the perspective of the novel, one whose voice is clearly distinct, fun in spurts, and emotionally honest [...]


    27. I highly recommend Geek Girl.*****Well, this was unexpected, me super liking Geek Girl. I didn't care if it was predictable. All that mattered to me was that i'm two chapters in, and i am swooning with delight over Jen and Trevor! All throughout the book, i was smiling and gushing. *happy sigh* Kinda nice to read a book with little sexual innuendos and more gush factor, yes? I'm swept away. :)The bet was no more than something to past the time for Jen before she busts her way out (again) from he [...]


    28. This is one of those books that I liked until about 2/3rd through. Bad girl Jen makes a bet that she can turn good boy Trevor bad. Her reward: she'll get her lip re-pierced which she assumes will be the last straw for her current foster parents. The seduction of Trevor is predictable - he does fall for her, and she falls for him, but the time taken with their developing relationship is well spent. There's a particularly memorable camping scene. It fell apart for me when Jen had changed so much t [...]
