Geek Girl is an incredible series about 15 year old geek, Harriet Manners, and how she goes from geek to something slightly different. Harriet is not like the other girls at school. She is not cool and trendy, doesn't like fashion and gets bullied a lot by Alexa. Her best friend, Nat, loves fashion and has wanted to be a model since she was 7. Harriet's Dad loves Harriet and will do anything for her. Annabel, her stepmother is a lawyer. She helps Harriet out whenever she needs it and Harriet loves her.

Nat drags Harriet on a school trip to a clothes festival, where Harriet has a few embarrassing accidents and unexpectedly is spotted by a model agency. She is signed and rushed to Moscow for a fashion show. But when she gets home there are a few problems she needs to deal with.

"A smart, sassy and very funny debut." The Bookseller

Описание: Harriet Manners knows a lot of things.

She knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a "jiffy" lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. What she isn't quite so sure about is why nobody at school seems to like her very much. So when she's spotted by a top model agent, Harriet grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her Best Friend's dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of the impossibly handsome supermodel Nick. Even if it means lying to the people she loves.

As Harriet veers from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, she begins to realise that the world of fashion doesn't seem to like her any more than the real world did.

And as her old life starts to fall apart, the question is: will Harriet be able to transform herself before she ruins everything?

Book Review 22: Geek Girl by Holly Smale


Model Misfit (Geek Girl #2) / Не Совсем Модель (Чудачка #2)

Model Misfit (Geek Girl #2) / Не Совсем Модель (Чудачка #2)

ISBN: 9780007489466

Описание: “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?
