Geek Girl: Model Misfit – Book Review and Giveaway

20130818-014013.jpg

Well the Geek is most definitely back. Harriet tries to hoodwink us into thinking her new modelling career makes her cool, but she’s still our peanut-muffin (my attempt at a Wilburism) Harriet really.

Geek Girl: Model Misfit is the second book in the Geek Girl series by the brilliant Holly Smale. You might also like my review of Geek Girl, and an earlier interview with Holly.

Now I’ve been pondering how to review this without giving spoilers, so all I’m going to say is that Holly has expertly used one of my favourite writerly tools – bravo.

At the start of Model Misfit Harriet is due to be a big sister, and with all attention on the baby, Natalie sent away for the summer and a lack of Lion Boy!, an overheard conversation is the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Harriet jumps at the chance to head to Tokyo for scary Yuka’s latest campaign, which involves Charlie the octopus, sumo and an awkward reunion.

Most of the characters from the first series are back, but because the action takes place in Japan, some of them are just mentioned rather than seen. A few notable additions are Harriet’s highly irresponsible step-grandmother Bunty, and Harriet’s new model room-mates, Rin and Poppy.

I have only one last thing I’m going to mention, because really I want you to experience this amazing follow up fresh and spoiler free…

My favourite character, Toby – Harriet’s stalker, reduced me to tears in one scene, and I nearly hugged myself because of ‘all the feels’.

Clearly I gave Geek Girl: Model Misfit 5 out of 5 stars

Cover Reveal – Geek Girl: Model Misfit

I know I’m a little late to the party (I was busy being my fabulous geeky self at LeakyCon – more on that later) but I still wanted to share this wonderful cover. I’m so looking forward to this book.

So, what do you think?
