“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.”

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.
