Synopsis: “My name is Harriet Manners, and I am still a geek.”
Harriet knows that modelling won’t transform you. She knows that being as uniquely odd as a polar bear isn’t necessarily a bad thing (even in a rainforest). And that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to beat this.
What Harriet doesn’t know is where she’s going to fit in once the new baby arrives.
With summer plans ruined, modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get as far away from home as possible. But nothing can prepare Harriet for the craziness of Tokyo, her competitive model flatmates and her errant grandmother’s ‘chaperoning’. Or seeing gorgeous Nick everywhere she goes.
Because, this time, Harriet knows what a broken heart feels like.
Can geek girl find her place on the other side of the world or is Harriet lost for good?
My Rating: 5/5 stars
My Review: Model Misfit is the second book in the Geek Girl series. Click HERE to read my review of Geek Girl, the first book in the series.
The Geek is back, and she's funnier than ever. If you loved the first book, then you will be head over heels for this one.
With the pressure of the new baby, a loss of a hot boyfriend, and Harriet's 'Summer of Fun Flow Chart' being put to waste when her best friend leaves her for the summer, things could not get any worse for Harriet. Thankfully, she has a fairy god mother named Wilbur who comes to the rescue with a new modelling job in Japan.
Harriet has not changed one bit, even though she may act a little older and wiser, she is still the same lovable girl you've met before. She still makes you laugh out loud, and feel like you're fifteen years old again with her crazy adventures and super fun spirit.
Holly Smale has outdone herself once again. This book is magnificent and its the perfect summer read that will make you smile and laugh. It is such an easy and enjoyable read, I just want to read the whole series all over again.
If you've read my review of the first book, you can tell just how much I love this series, and my feelings have definitely not changed since finishing the second book. It is just as good. In fact, it might even be a little bit better.
I highly encourage everyone who has started the series to continue on, because you will definitely not be disappointed. And if you haven't read this series yet... What are you still doing here? Go and get a copy of Geek Girl right away. :)
