One thought on “Going Geek

  1. Dahlia

    I was trying to figure out what it is I liked so much about this book, and I realized it s that this is the kind of character arc I always wished was impressed as a great one IRL I remember a friend asking me shortly after we d started at different colleges So who s cool and meaning it in exactly that high school way of hot and popular and influential and whatever, and me thinking that it was such an absurd question to be asking Like, WTF is that concept, even I can tell you who s interested in [...]

    3.5 Stars Ok serious stars were lost because holy shit the main character was SO annoying in the first 150 pages of the book, I almost gave up reading it 3 times Seriously, I get that it was her character and she was slowly developing a small sense of humanity but oh my god she was SO self absorbed with being popular having the perfect image because moving into the loser dorm sucks ass because everyone there is OBVIOUSLY a loser and a nerd and disgusting because they re not popular Also can we t [...]

    It s Skylar s senior year at her exclusive boarding school but things are not going as planned Her family is having financial problems and when her friends and boyfriend learned that she spent her summer working, they disappear And she s now stuck in the loser dorm It s not a spoiler to say that the girls at Skylar s new dorm are actually pretty awesome, right You know how stories like this go But the way that Skylar manages to turn everything around and have a great senior year anyway is an abs [...]

    Going Geek is like Mean Girls in boarding school except Skyler isn t quite as likable as Cady Heron I was pretty anxious to read Charlotte Huang s followup after loving her debut I thought Going Geek was a fun read, but I didn t love it as much as For the Record.This book is filled with catty and spoiled girls I find those sorts of characters entertaining in small doses, and Going Geek was probably the perfect dose I m happy that Skyler gets separated from her old dorm friends right away because [...]

    Want to see all the negative aspects of a typical slice of life YA story with few of the positives I highly doubt you do, but man this book was like a drinking game Take a shot each time the MC can t get used to her new school, meets a quirky side character, has parents that just don t get them I think that s what they had in mind, since you can only experience this whilst drunk.

  6. Kiana Cook

    Going Geek is no literary masterpiece It s not even a great novel as far as YA books go It s all surface level storytelling, with little to no nuance kind of like your average high school based movie if you ve seen Mean Girls or High School Musical, those will probably give you a pretty good indicator of the character depth and predictability in this book But you know what Sometimes it s nice to take a break from reality and lose yourself in a pleasant, familiar story that reminds you how being [...]

    Despite the light and fluffy read that this is, it also deals with some heavier topics like figuring out what you want in life, who you are, and most importantly what makes a friendship healthy Skylar starts out as an incredibly spoiled and snobby rich kid but she learns quickly and I really enjoyed seeing her grow throughout the novel It s a very cute book and even though it s predictable, I didn t read this for its originality It delivered what I wanted it to deliver and that s having a bit of [...]

    3.5 StarsGoing Geek is a heartfelt young adult contemporary novel that readers of all ages can identify with If you read my reviews, you ll know that this genre isn t my usual cup of tea I ll occasionally read and review them, if they sound promising I wasn t sure if I was going to like this book, but I ended up enjoying it than I thought I really liked Skylar as the main character especially as she faces all these new challenges at her school She s down to earth and determined to do things how [...]

    The thing I love about both of Charlotte s books so far is that she has this beautiful ability to write an unlikeable girl that you root for passionately And she takes all of these cringe worth ideas and quirks about that unlikeable girl and, over the course of the book, showing us how with a little perspective and self reflection and open mindedness, we see how those quirks can so easily be strengths This book was such a fun look into the culture of a boarding school and I just loved Skylar She [...]

    I love stories where the main character undergoes a journey of self awareness, and GOING GEEK is exactly that Skylar is forced to terms with her own prejudices and expectations of what is cool, and even so, she has to figure out who she is and what she really wants from life in terms of her group of friends, her partner, and her academic career I absolutely loved FOR THE RECORD, and GOING GEEK was just as fantastic Real characters with real problems but also a fun setting with some really aweso [...]

    While it took me a little while to warm up to Skylar s rich girl attitude, once I did I was hooked Going Geek is such a quick read and so perfect for these last lazy days of summer Huang breathed life into characters I would love to know in person and that for me is huge Although I could have done with less of the Mean Girl esque drama, I really enjoyed this one and look forward to seeing what she does next For the full review and , head over to The Pretty Good Gatsby

    I decided to read Charlotte s book in order of release for the ONTARIO TEEN BOOK FEST and I have heard of her books before so I was excited to read them Here s my review of GOING GEEK I have always been wary of boarding school type of books where a rich girl is in a school with other rich students These types of books just aren t my favorite to read because they are kind of hard to read mainly because the characters are so stuck up BUT GOING GEEK it wasn t like that entirely Skylar went through [...]

    Going Geek might be fairly described as a mix between two classic setups former Pretty Person finds true happiness with underdogs, and underdogs unseat the Pretty People.I suspect that part of me is still trying to find my boarding school experience in a book never going to happen, for complicated reasons , and this really wasn t that book Skylar s school is a prep school to the max students who come from serious wealth and who care who comes or doesn t come from similar wealth pressure from the [...]

    This book was recommended for me because I liked Shannon Hales Real Friends which I enjoyed for its sweet, honest look at friendship while growing up When I started reading Going Geek I hated it It seemed like just another patronizing spoiled girl learns to be nice book I have a thing about finishing books though, so I kept reading By the time I was half way Huang s writing had me hooked It is wyhat I thought, but better Lively pacing, fun if stereotyped characters, encouraging resolution There [...]

  19. Jeff Raymond

    A girl heads back to her boarding school She goes to a boarding school because she s an actress, and her sequel to her big movie wasn t greenlit, and her response is to lie about it So the story continues on with this being the pressure point of the plot, and I think you might get an idea as to why this didn t connect for me There may be some fun fantasy wish fulfillment here for some readers, but I found it hard to like anything going on here.

  20. sislasus

    2,5 stars This was an ok read, kind of cute coming of age feel good, but nothing special It really took some time for me to warm up to Skylar, the people around her were easier to like

  21. Nina

    As a sucker for boarding school tales, this was shallow fun Very similar to Mean Girls that Amanda Bynes Snow White Greek life mash up romcom where she rehabilitates a fraternity of geeky guys.

  22. Monique

    Besides the little things language I think, innuendo I really liked the plot and the writing It was great how everything turned out in the end

  23. ruth

    The main character was so rude and annoying for most of the book, but I did love the side characters so they saved this from a one star It was pretty much a cliche book, but I kinda expected that.

  24. Amy Jones

    I d give it 3.5 stars if I could Nothing tremendously special, but a lot of fun regardless A fairly typical YA book, which is really all I want sometimes.

  25. Julie Failla Earhart

    High School is hell all who survives it realizes that at some point in their life I was attracted to this book because I was curious as to how much technology and, I d like to think, advanced emotional and psychological growth, had changed being a teenager.In this story, Skylar is looking forward to her senior year at a preppy, East Coast boarding school It s going to be the best Year Ever She is going with one of the stars of the soccer team her friends are ultra cool, and she s in the best dor [...]
