For every girl who marches to the beat of her own drum, Leslie Simon has your manifesto: a smart, expansive, and winningly entertaining celebration of comedy queens, film geeks, bookworms, craft mavens, indie chicks, and other all-star women. Following the breakaway hit book Everybody Hurts, Simon's energizing look at today's pop-culture and counterculture heroines-like Amy Sedaris, Tina Fey, Sofia Coppola, Regina Spektor, and Jenny Hart-is an empowering, eye-opening, and, above all, fun journey. Readers of The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking and The Modern Girl's Guide to Life will love joining forces as Geek Girls Unite!

"While geekdom has long been portrayed in pop culture as a boys' club, Simon catalogues the wide variety of geek girls in this entertaining look at embracing nonconformity...a worthy endeavor." -- Publishers Weekly
Tina Fey worshipper Leslie Simon crowdsources media obsessions from a `guild' of like-minded women to assemble this peppy survey of comedy, literary, film and music icons, all the while evangelizing on behalf of misfit females. -- Wired.com
