Harriet and the clothes show? Not a good combination, after an eventful coach trip, upon arrival, she trashes several stalls, gets threatened to be sued, and hides under a table. Things surely couldnt get worse? She gets spotted, by a model agency. Something she can't tell Nat, not when it was Nats dream all along.
Geek girl is heartwarming, funny and perfect for teens. Its a reminder its not all bad, it does get better. I loved Harriet, she made me laugh, she made me recognise myself a bit (not the model part - haha!) Nat was sweet, with good intentions with a huge temper. Geek girl was a coming of age story in parts, it was about friendship, been yourself, and a love story all wrapped up in a novel.
It was fast paced and alot happened in the short space of time we met Harriet, but im guessing the modelling world travels at the same speed. If you are a fan of teen and y/a fiction this could be up your street.
