Geek Girl - Picture Perfect - Review and giveaway!

I really liked the look of Geek Girl and was keen to read it, so I read through it quite quickly!  It was much better then I expected actually.



Geek Girl by Holly Smale is about a teenage girl called Harriet Manners who loves living where she lives and loves the friends she has but she has to move all the way to America, far away from all her friends and her home, and only an hour and a half away from New York.  She doesn't have such a great life there, she has a mean tutor and nobody to talk to.  But, from what I read throughout this book, I think she coped quite well.

Harriet has a boyfriend called Nick, who is a model and travels all round the world, because of this Harriet doesn't get to see Nick much.  But when they do meet up they have some good times.  They really love each other.  When Nick finds out that Harriet has run away from home he takes her back and Harriet gets grounded for five days.

It is soon Harriet's birthday and she is so looking forward to her birthday.  Her parents are acting like they don't know it is her birthday, so this makes her birthday even more exciting...that is until she finds out that her parents actually have forgotten about her birthday.  Harriet stays in her room and doesn't come out.  She is so upset - Harriet's dad got a new watch and he saw the date and realised that it was Harriet's birthday.

Early in the morning Harriet leaves her house and goes to New York to meet up with her friend who has given her a job as a model.  Harriet used to be a model before and really missed modelling but Harriet has to go on a roller coaster for a photo shoot and the roller coaster has to go round a few times and when she gets off she faints.

I really enjoyed this book and thoroughly recommend it.
