Every so often a great Young Adult book lands in my hands and Geek Girl by Cindy C. Bennett is one of those said books. I read this book from cover to cover within a twenty-four hour time period, amazing right? It may only be 316 pages, but each page is deliciously satisfying and little bit heart wrenching. Geek Girl is not easy to put down. I ate my meals with one hand and kept the other on this book. Geek Girl is a MUST read! Two thumbs up to Cindy C. Bennett for writing such a gem.

...Jen, really sucked me into her world. Jen's experiences and views living with a foster family is as out-of-place as Willis's historian, Kivrin, in medieval Europe-this really appealed to me. I loved Jen's metamorphosis from emo/freak girl to `Geek Girl'. Cindy Bennett does a terrific job from start to finish and has me cheering for Jen and Trev from the very beginning. Beautiful dose of humor, romance, symbolism, and sci-fi movie `geekiness'. Great read, highly recommend for all ages.

I usually like to read paranormal romance, and this one seemed like it might be straight romance. It was a love story and it was wonderful, it had me giddy and excited. I found it interesting compared to my paranormal romance...the love developed over time as it would in real life and not at lightning speed as it would in other books.That was a nice change.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.

Geek Girl, by Cindy C Bennett, pulls us into the life of Jen, a snarly, confused Goth girl with plenty of attitude. I was quickly brought into the story by the easy narrative and dialogue which seemed spot on and I found myself smiling and nodding at the realistic situations and uncomplicated humor. Jen's feelings, her confusion, her rebellion and her transformation are all expertly handled by the author. If I gave this book fewer than 5 stars it would not reflect the excellence of Geek Girl.

I for one think that this is one of the best YA books of the year. Geek Girl keep me turning the pages, and when I was not reading Geek Girl I was thinking about it. The writer really draws you into this book. This is a beautiful story about falling in love for the first time, learning to be loved by someone else and learning to live through heartbreak, learning to trust other people and just learning about self discovery. Great debut novel but a very talented writer. Please do read this book.
