The kind of book that can change your life…

the geeks shall inherit the earth by Alexandra Robbins
POPULARITY, QUIRK THEORY, AND WHY OUTSIDERS THRIVE AFTER HIGH SCHOOL

Cross Gossip Girl with Freaks and Geeks, add MTV’s MADE, a shocking plot twist, and Alexandra Robbins’ signature investigative style – and that only begins to describe GEEKS, a smart, entertaining, reassuring book about the secrets of students who are popular and the triumph of those who are not. Robbins follows seven real people grappling with the uncertainties of high school social life, including:


  • Danielle, The Loner, who has withdrawn from classmates since they persuaded her to unwittingly join her own hate club
  • Whitney, The Popular Bitch, a cheerleading captain both seduced by and trapped within her clique’s perceived prestige
  • Eli, The Nerd, whose differences cause students to laugh at him and his mother to needle him for not being “normal”
  • Joy, The New Girl, determined to stay positive as classmates harass her for her mannerisms and target her because of her race
  • Mark, The Gamer, an underachiever in danger of not graduating, despite his intellect and his yearning to connect with other students
  • Regan, The Weird Girl, who battles discrimination and gossipy politics in school but leads a joyous life outside of it
  • Noah, The Band Geek , who is alternately branded too serious and too emo, yet annually runs for class president.

In the middle of the year, Robbins surprises her subjects with a secret challenge – experiments that force them to change how classmates see them and teach us why the things that set students apart in high school are the things that help them stand out later in life.

Robbins intertwines these narratives – often victorious, occasionally heartbreaking, and always captivating – with essays exploring subjects like:

  • How do you get to be popular?

  • Being excluded doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you

  • Why outsiders succeed

  • How schools make the social scene worse – and how to fix it.
