In recent years, male geeks have taken the world by storm: They've become unexpected sex symbols (Seth Rogen and Michael Cera); they've penned pieces of literary brilliance (Rest in peace, David Foster Wallace); they've even reinvented the art of modern cinema (Kudos, Coen brothers!) But what about their female counterparts? After all, fangirls are just like fanboys - they put on their imperial stormtrooper Lycra pants one leg at a time. "Geek Girls Unite" is a call to arms for every girl who has ever wondered where her rebel sisters have gone. It's also a sassy, savvy celebration of all the women who are busy bucking convention and making the world a smarter, better, and, yes, cooler place. Each chapter is dedicated to a crosssection of the geek elite-fangirls, music fanatics, bookworms, craft mavens, funny girls, film buffs, and others - and looks at groundbreaking women, geek hall-of-famers, ultimate love matches, and most likely frenemies. Along with fun quizzes, illustrations, and trivia boxes, each group also gets tailored recommendations for playlists, books, movies, and websites.
Fun, funny, and ultimately empowering, this is the perfect book for women of any age who've felt like they're on the outside looking includes.
