Summer Book Reviews
'Geek High' Reviewed by Stefania Lee
Math-mastermind Miranda, nicknamed "Human Calculator," cannot fit into the genius-filled "Geek High." She is cursed with problems that simply cannot be solved by using math.
Her mother flies off to London and leaves her with her father who has a new life of his own with Miranda's malicious stepmother and vexing stepsister.
She is head-over-heels for a boy who falls for her stepsister, and Miranda also gets blackmailed into planning the school's dreaded Snowflake Gala.
As the school year progresses, bad evolves to worst before it ever becomes magnificent.
Geek High is a welcomed addition to my collection of favorable books. It is funny, exciting, and has a satisfying ending. I look forward to the sequel.
