What is the plot of Geek Girl?

The story is centered on Harriet Manners, a sixteen-year-old girl who has always been trying to blend in and not get noticed. Despite her geekiness which can be seen by everyone, she remained invisible. During a school trip to London Fashion Week, her life turns dramatically when she gets spotted by a modeling agent and is introduced into the world of glamour, and fashion.

Moreover, the plot synopsis informs us that Harriet will meet several interesting characters ranging from edgy agents and reclusive designers to the dangers of impossibly high heels and an attractive young supermodel.

The series guarantees a mix of comedy and tragedy, thus making it worth watching for both book readers and new fans.

This is Harriet’s path to self-acceptance and empowerment concepts that make this show resonate well with audiences. Most certainly, the adaptation will maintain its witty engaging tone while giving a fresh look at its visual storytelling as expected from this TV version.

Geek Girl is coming soon to life starring amazing cast members with a captivating storyline that every die-hard fan longs for its release date to come sooner rather than later.
