Everyone loves KJ Miller, especially the geeks. She's pretty, smart, and super nice to everyone, which has made her the geek pied piper of Washington High. If only Cameron, the star of the basketball team, would follow her around and worship her the way her dorky entourage does.
Finally, a book I not only enjoy, but also, teaches a really good (and relatable) lesson
Geek Magnet was a funny and cute novel that teens should find relatable to their own life. It is about a girl named KJ who is worshipped by the geeks at her school. Although she appreciates their admiration, she is also embarassed that the school views her as a 'geek magnet'(hence the title). KJ befriends Tama Gold, the 'popular girl' who aids her in getting the geeks to go away. She becomes mean, ignoring he ...more
girl loved by geeks. How can you not love a character that is loved by people who secretly drive her insane?
KJ Miller is a nice girl. She's nice to everyone. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body.
Until she meets Tama Gold. And becomes friends with her. The popular girl. The girl who teaches her how to "stand up" for herself. Or, basically, more or less, teaches her how to be mean!
KJ finally gets the chance to go out with her wildly popular crus ...more
The introduction to KJ is more than a little bit rocky. We start with her becoming stage manager for the year’s production of Grease at her High School. More importantly, we see her gaggle of geeks that are involved with the production of the play in different capacities. They’re all various kinds of doggedly anxious to please her, and one ...more
Okay, so I was dizzy with power. Can you blame me? It was the first day of rehearsals for the spring musical, Grease, at Washington High and I, KJ Miller, was the stage manager. The woman in charge. The first junior ever to be granted this most prestigious position.
KJ Miller. How to describe KJ? Well, there's the obvious. She's a geek magnet. She draws some geeky undesirables close to her. Fred. Glenn. Andy. Perhaps because of all the buzzing geeks near her, KJ i ...more
So. Freaking. Cute.
Honestly, this book was all kinds of predictable, cliche, and over-the-top cheesy. It was the epitome of a "feel good" chick-flick, middle-grade "coming-to-age" kind of book. But it was also so cute and sweet and made my insides swell with nostalgia and fluffy sweetness. But unlike the quickly dissipating sweetness of cotton candy - melting in your mouth at first with its' sugary goodness, then disappearing into nothing, leaving you with a sinking emptiness (and ultimately hun ...more
Geek Magnet by Kieran Scott can be categorized as a typical teen book, but what it has and other doesn't is the reality of high school. In the book, KJ is a geek magnet and she was never considered 'cool', well because she was a geek magnet. lol. but at one point of ...more
About Friendship, Family, and Love.
Very different from what I used to read. Instead of chapters, there are Acts and Scenes.
The synopsis on the back cover of the book made me read it. There's something interesting about it, and don't forget the name: KJ :)
KJ Miller is a very nice and a friendly student. And there are THREE GEEKS following her around wherever she goes.
Enter Tama, the popular girl. She'll help KJ to get rid of the Geeks by being mean so that KJ will be with Richardson, ...more

For KJ, life is complicated.
She is the ultimate geek magnet. Why can't it work with the hot guys though? That's what she asks, when she cannot get the right attention from popular boy Cameron. The cover of the book really caught my attention (who cannot resist diving into a book with a cover and title like that?!) and I'm glad I caught sight of it, because it was one hilarious ride into the land of geekdom.
We've all b ...more
The story centers around KJ, a high school junior who was just given the job of stage manager for her school's musical production of Grease. I think a lot of people can relate to KJ, I certainly can. There a ...more
Our dear heroin was one of the most unlikable girls I’ve ever read about. She’s naïve, she’s stupid, she’s rather selfish, has problems with keeping her anger in check (for someone who’s never been anythi ...more
I bought this book because I'm a huge fan of Kieran Scott/Kate Brian and anything with geeks is just sounds interesting!... Bring back Screech memories (yep, that was a Saved by the Bell reference and nope, I wasn't old enough to watch it first time round! But come on the oldies are the besties, right?!) So as I was saying I've read a number of her books in the past but have yet to do reviews of them so will probably get round to do it soon.
So this gir ...more

Weight of the World
Is following the crowd ever worth changing who you are? Ever had to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders to meet other’s expectations? “Geek Magnet” by Kieran Scott is an inspiring tale that touches upon how peer pressures affects your life and who you are as a person.
KJ is followed and worshiped by the geeks of the school. Worshiped as much as coming down with embarrassment of how her peers see her as the “geek magnet” ...more
