For every girl who marches to the beat of her own drum, Leslie Simon has your manifesto: a smart, expansive, and winningly entertaining celebration of comedy queens, film geeks, bookworms, craft mavens, indie chicks, and other all-star women. Following the breakaway hit book Everybody Hurts, Simon's energizing look at today's pop-culture and counterculture heroines-like Amy Sedaris, Tina Fey, Sofia Coppola, Regina Spektor, and Jenny Hart-is an empowering, eye-opening, and, above all, fun journey. Readers of The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking and The Modern Girl's Guide to Life will love joining forces as Geek Girls Unite!
