    1. Clich This book is so clich I thought this book was okay, but I didn t love it There was no surprise in this book I felt that the plot was week and I wasn t attached to the characters There wasn t a proper conclusion to the story and I was really upset This is another White Pine book for the book club that I am in Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book It s a quick read and you can finish it in about an hour It is about a 16 year old girl named Gretchen Meyers, who is having a hard time in sch [...]

    2. Date Read January 2015 This is my1sttime reading it.Rating 0 stars Review 223 pages of pure misogyny featuring slut shaming, the friend zone, and the special snowflake mentality My favourite.

    3. Gretchen Meyers doesn t know exactly what went wrong, but life in the eleventh grade is beginning to suck As if having a semi nudist, food obsessed family wasn t awkward enough, she has lost her best friend to the fanatical school swim team, and her chemistry grade is so close to negative digits that only emergency tutoring can save it So far, so high school Then James Dean rolls into her life, also known as her zit faced chemistry tutor James and his slightly less zit faced cousin Dean Kind hea [...]

    4. The Opposite of Geek is a fun and unique book that has a remarkable format This book is laid out with journal entries and poetry, making for an interesting read It also includes a major plot twist to boot The writing style in The Opposite of Geek is very fascinating It is written as a journal with various journal entries on each page It never specifically says Dear Diary , or the date of the entry, but the way the character s voice is written makes it seem very personal I love when books are wri [...]

    5. Gretchen Meyers und ihre beste Freundin Nemiah kann nichts trennen, dachte Gretchen zumindest immer Als Nemiah mit ihrer neuen Schwimmteam Clique abh ngt und Gretchens Chemienoten immer weiter in den Keller sinken, war klar Nachhilfe musste her Zum Gl ck gibt es Nerd James mit seinen freakigen T Shirts und dem attraktiveren lteren CousinIch lese gerne noch realistische Jugendb cher, wenn sie mit Witz und Charme geschrieben sind Dies versprach ich mir auch von diesem Titel Die Kapitel erinnern an [...]

    6. Gretchen is like any other high school student struggling to find her way in the world She feels pressure from her parents to succeed, fights with her friends and endures tutoring Her character grows phenomenally in the novel as unexpected tragedy occurs She finds a way to make someone s life matter, even in their absence.

    7. This book is about a girl named Gretchen Meyers who isn t so happy with her life right now Her parents are pressuring her to become a doctor and she s failing chemistry She doesn t have a good relationship with her family members, and her only friend Nemiah seems to completely forget about her after joining the swim team Gretchen becomes friends with Dean her chemistry tutor and James who is his cousin Together, these three go out for small adventures, but overall, they enjoy their friendship Un [...]

    8. This book was quite average, and pretty cliche, but I did enjoy it.Basically, the main character, a 16 year old named Gretchen, has hit a low point Her grades for chemistry suck, her parents don t understand that she wants to be a writer and not a doctor, and her best friend ditched her for some other friends Okay, pretty relatable, which was one of the strong points of the books Then, she gets a chemistry tutor named James, and she meets his cousin Dean through him They re kind of like the thre [...]

    9. This had a rough start, like the author was trying to figure out the teenage voice.At the very beginning I wasn t very impressed, I didn t like the voice or the narration But those were simply for the intro of the book Once the author figured out who the character was, it got better.Once that stride was hit, the character was pretty fantastic I could see the characterization and all that, and it fit together wonderfully.I also just cried from the posters perhaps two thirds until the end I always [...]

    10. I read this for our school s Battle of the Books It was very teenager or rather pre teenfull of drama and angst but it does grow up as the character does with climax of the story Really well written and an original lead character whose enjoyment of non typical teenage things, making her a perfect underdog Speaks well to the issue of cliques in high school BUT this character only gains acceptance through a tragedy that strikes at the hearts of the cliques Not sure if that s a message that I m hap [...]

    11. This was one of my White Pine 2014 15 reads.The Opposite of Geek has a strange format that reads like a poetry book Once you discover the pacing and structure it is easier to focus on the narrative This novel focuses on the constant shifts of high schools, including the ever changing pool of friends, enemies, and crushes The ending post accident seemed rushed, like there wasn t enough grieving, and the poetry Gretchen reads at the end is weak I liked that other author s poems were included in th [...]

    12. The opposite of geek is a compelling novel about a girl who is slightly in denial about being a geek She becomes great friend with a guy named James and his Cousin Dean Thing are amazing which of course means something terrible and lets just say it ended up with me in tears for a few minuets after Although this book is amazing and I would recommend it to friends I felt as though I didn t get enough closer at the end like something was missing This was a nice casual book about friends who deal wi [...]

    13. I liked where this book was going But my question is did it have to go to the lengths it did to achieve its ending I mean was the main character such a lost cause, that without that drastic twist, she would never have done what she did in the end The romance was a bit shallow, in my opinion, but whatever right It was like a distraction in my opinion And her best friend really REALLY Wow just, wow .

    14. This book is so great in so many levels It s emotionally hard hitting, intelligent, and at the same time light hearted, humorous and up beat Gretchen goes through so many ups and downs it s a roller coaster for the reader I love how this book tackles the realities of social life in high school, friendship and tragedy and offers a glimmer of hope at the same time I love the use of poetry and verse and how Gretchen s voice grows through the pages.

    15. This is a great book for mid teens The book is about a girl who feels rejected because her friend left her for another group of friends, but finds new hope with two new friends I just have oNe protest about the book The sorrow in it is written so well many will be reduced to nothing but tears while reading this It is a book of both great happiness and great sorrow.

    16. A book that did not seem to have any new ideas and is carrying on the legacy of weird teenage talents and their bizarre views of life The only thing appreciable was introducing a change in views about geeks to the general public.It was okay.

    17. Bullying and changing landscape of teen friendships Difficult themes and situations This was a fast easy read which I basically liked but it left me wanting Good for the reluctant reader.

    18. Story filled with Romance, Heartbreak and Wonder Life struggles and challenges I loved this book.What is the opposite of geek Find out by reading the book

    19. Done as journal entries, some in poem haiku form At first typical high school stuff, then gets pretty deep in issues.

    20. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley Germany in exchange for an honest review.

    21. A little bit depressing, but overall, It yanked me in and spit me out pretty fast a nice, quick read.

    22. The main character was pretty relatable, but that was the only thing I really liked about the book Most of it was very predictable Good thing it was a quick read
