Overview

At this school, everyone's a geek. And Miranda Bloom still can't fit in...

Miranda is a math genius with divorced parents, an evil stepmother, and no boyfriend in sight. She can't even fit in with the other geeks at the Nottingham Independent School for high-IQ students, because they actually have useful talents. Miranda, on the other hand, is known as "The Human Calculator," which doesn't amount to much when people have, you know, their own calculators.

Then Miranda gets stuck planning the school's Snowflake Gala. And as she struggles to find a date and drum up some school spirit at Nottingham-aka "Geek High"-she finds that who you are means more than where you fit in.

    Harsh as it may seem, I found this as one of the WORST books I've ever read.

    Geek High disappointed me greatly, with the chilidish views of the main character, and lacking story plot.

    Girl likes guy, girl is invisible to guy, etc etc. When I was reading the book, I could have SWORN I had read the book before, with the great sense of Deja Vu I got...When I realized that the plot is so cliche and overused, that reading the scenerio in a million other books was just bugging me.

    This book had a main character who expressed her lack of common sense (in the teen world today), that I could've sworn that the author was five years old.

    There are also A LOT of typos that should have been caught by editors of the book.

    This is NOT a recommended book to read!!

    I found this book very entertaining. I really like Dex, but Miranda seems a bit over dramatic and stero-typical. Such as, the geek to get-the-guy girl. Though I really enjoyed it. You can even pick up on the connection between Finn and Charlie. I give it a 4 out of 5, read it!

    I think htat this book was a little too dramatic, and needs a better base of the story. That's just my opinion...not yours!

    Reviewed by Randstostipher "tallnlankyrn" Nguyen for TeensReadToo.com

    Miranda Bloom can be described in one word: Normal. Or maybe two: Slightly Normal. <BR/><BR/>Her life consists of a laid-back mother, an absentee father who just married a demon (more on that later), two pretty sane friends, a dog who loves her dearly, and no boyfriend (which she hopes will change in just a matter of time). She isn't the prettiest, or the ugliest, and she doesn't have a major talent. She can do an equation before you can say calculator, but that isn't really a talent since she can easily be replaced by a calculator. <BR/><BR/>It's a new year though, and Miranda hopes she can turn her life around. Make it even better than it is right now, which might take a while. From having the hottest and sweetest guy, Emmett Dutch, notice her, to avoiding vicious comments from the evil Felimonster, Felicity Glen, this is the year she truly wants to remember. <BR/><BR/>Unfortunately for Miranda, this new year of hers doesn't start out so great. Her mom decides to abandon her and go to London to do some research for her new book. That means Miranda has to move into her dad's drab house, which includes his new demon wife and her demon spawn, the oh-so-perfect Hannah. Her crush, Emmett, does notice her though, but only because Miranda trips on the first day of school right in front of him. And when Emmett first meets Miranda's stepsister, Hannah, it is love at first sight, which is good for Hannah but totally bad for Miranda. <BR/><BR/>Can Miranda survive living with her dad, find a talent, find at least one guy who would go out with her, and navigate Geek High while trying to make this the year to remember? <BR/><BR/>The first in a new series, GEEK HIGH is definitely GEEKTASTIC!

    This is the kind of book that just can't be put down!

    This was an awesome book! There was just something about it that made it such a great read! I was looking around at B&N looking for something decent to read. When I saw Geek High I thought it looked somewhat good. After reading it, It was SO much better than expexted! There is never a boring part in this book! I stayed up until about 12:30 when I had starting reading it a bit earlier b/c I could'nt wait until morning to find out what happened next! Anyway, this is one of the best books that I have read in a while and is funny too! A spectacular novel for any young adult who likes all different types of books! I myself am currently about to start Piper Bank's next novel called Geek Abroad! I am pretty sure all of the same characters are in this sequel, except Miranda goes to London to see Sadie (Her Mom) and that is where it takes place! Excited to read it! I hope that this review was helpful for anyone who has free time and likes good books! : )

    could not put the book down!!

    Geek High was the best book,! I started reading it the last day of school. I read the first few pages and fell in love with it! I also just finished Geek Abroad that was also a excellent book! The Two books are heart touching and very excellent!!! I would request this book, if you want a quick read and what to just sit and never put the book down!

    Never what I expected......

    I never expected this book to be one of my favorites. I just picked it out and i only got to page twelve and stopped, for about 2 months. Then I just started reading last week, and i finished it in two days! It was amazingly awesome, never what i expected thaat would come out of this book. I recomend it to middle school and high school girls.

    I Couldn't Put The Book Down!!

    i think that this book is really sweet and i love how everything patches together at the end. this book takes you to a mind of a girl that is totally in love when she has to live with the 'other family' and everything start to fall apart. but when she meets a really cute boy that goes to her step-sister's school, it could turn her life around. it shows you how tough romance can be when it is taken away from you.
