A girl forced out of her comfort zone finds that being true to herself is the best way to live her life, in this second novel from the author of For the Record.

It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Skylar Hoffman’s senior year at her preppy East Coast boarding school should have been perfect:

amazing boyfriend

the coolest friends

the most desirable dorm

But it’s far from it. To her dismay, Skylar’s not going to rule senior year because she’s stuck in Abbot House, a tiny dorm known for, well, nothing. Living with a group of strangers everyone thinks is lame is bad enough. Worse is that Skylar wasn’t exactly truthful about how she spent summer break in Los Angeles—and her little white lie is causing her once rock-solid romance to crumble fast. And when it turns out that Skylar’s best friend is the one responsible for having her booted from Lincoln? It’s an all-out war.

Stepping out of her comfort zone never felt so scary—or necessary. But everything is different now. Including, maybe, Skylar herself . . .

GOING GEEK was the first novel that I have read by CHARLOTTE HUANG and once I did, I wondered to myself why I haven’t read her earlier than I had? I have been hearing quite bit about her debut novel, FOR THE RECORD Which I am now excited to read. After reading this one, I am blown away by the characters and the story. It felt so real to me and a type of story that you can see yourself happening in real life. Everything that they were all dealing with, it sounds just like high school and the most of things that Scarlett went through. I fell in love with most of characters, especially with Scarlett and Declan, out of all of the characters in the novel, the two of them were my favorite. I needed to know how it would end for them. Most of all I was curious about the way things would end for Skylar.

Skylar went under main character change in this novel, you could tell by way she thought, and how she started doing things in different way than she did in beginning of the novel. What I loved the most about her was fact that she didn’t give up, not a single time. Despite what her old best friend tried to do, and how she tried to turn all her old friends against her. It didn’t stop her. Skylar was on a mission, the one that she wouldn’t stop till she got what she wanted to. I stil couldn’t believe what Whitney done, get her kicked out and than practically turned against her because her other best friend Lila showed up? Besides you can have more than one best friend. I guess she wasn’t a true friend with everything that she put Skylar through. I felt like Skylar was better off without her anyways. Who needs friends like these anyways? I hoped that Skylar would find wat to bring her down.

Now Declan, he’s the type of guy that every girl wants. The way he helped Skylar and was always there when she needed him, the two of them belong with one another. I was just waiting for Skylar to realize that. I just wish that she would realized it sooner than she had. I had a feeling that maybe there was a chance that she might go running back to her ex and end up breaking his heart. I was glad to find out that she didn’t. I loved the scenes between Declan and Skylar the most, you could tell that there was a connection between the two of them. I was rooting for them, hoping for their happy ending.

I loved every page. It was beautiful and filled with so much emotion. I could feel everything that Skylar was feeling. I was on edge of my seat till the end.
