Geekhood: Mission Improbable
Geekhood: Mission Improbable Geekhood: Mission Improbable
Geekhood: Mission Improbable
Author: Andy Robb

Archie is a Geek to his core – and despite having a Close Encounter with Sarah at the beginning of term, he’s still completely clueless about girls. Enter Clare – an older woman (she’s sixteen) who Archie meets on his weekend trip to see his dad and his nightmare step-mum, Jane. Clare and Archie hit it off – and she comes up with a brilliant, foolproof way to get their crushes to notice them: pretend to be going out with one another! What can possibly go wrong? With school, Sarah, a fake girlfriend and his insane family to deal with, Archie and his mates step-up the nerdiness and go Live Action Role-play gaming. Ladies and gentlemen, we are entering a new era…


A warm, witty tale of being a teenage geek, Geekhood captures the awkwardness of being a teenager perfectly. Geekhood has won huge acclaim and deserves a place in the heart of any teenager with even slightly geeky leanings.


"A deliciously tender story that wittily captures the ecstasy and agony of being a teenager." Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids.


"This book makes being a geek sound pretty cool to me!" True Blood's Stephen Moyer.
