“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?

This is one of my most anticipated books to read this year and I’m so happy I got the chance to read this early. I started reading this book out in public, while waiting on the queue. Despite the weird looks, people give me because I sometimes laugh to myself while reading this, I still pushed through and read. Of course between being bored to death and amused with my nose buried in a book, I’ll totally choose the latter.

Like the first book, Model Misfit brought hilarity, humor, drama and romance. In this book, Harriet signs on to a modeling project with Yuka Ito in Tokyo, where she spent her summer vacation in order to get away from home, thinking she couldn’t fit it with the new baby coming.

I dove into the book without knowing anything. When I requested this book from Edelweiss, I didn’t even read the synopsis. I just knew that I’m going to get a great reading experience because a.) it’s written by Holly Smale and b.) It’s Geek Girl!

I was really sad when I learned that Nick and Harriet broke up. I love them so much together, they’re so adorable! I think they’re the most adorable teen couples ever. Throughout most of the book, Harriet was heartbroken, the fun thing was, as much as one would expect a book with 15 year-olds as a couple who broke up would go waaaaayy too whiny and immature, this one is NOT and I LOVE IT. Plus, their chemistry was much more explored in this book and it has blossomed in a way that makes me clutch to my chest because of FEELS.

I love the additional characters in the book! Aside from the Nat, Harriet’s BFF; Toby, Harriet’s stalker who had an amazing character arc here by the way; and Alexa, the not-really-an-antagonist-but-enjoys-bullying-Harriet-and-friends, the book introduced more amazing characters.

Rin was one of Harriet’s flatmate in Japan and she’s super adorable! She even calls Harriet as Harry-chan. *heart eyes*. She was written so well. I like to think Holly Smale has a knack for writing super adorable characters. I love her character so much! Poppy was their other housemate. She’s this beautiful model, who worked with Nick in one project. Like Harriet, I did feel a little threatened by her character and it’s written so well too!!

Bunty, Harriet’s Step-Grandmum, I guess was the cherry on top. She’s really awesome and funny and cool! One of the main topics discussed in this book is family. I love the Manners so much, especially Harriet’s dad. What I love more is the fact that family was the main concept of the book, like how will Harriet fit in the family when Annabel finally gives birth to the baby. It was such an experience reading the development of their relationships with each other, it has gone deeper and I think the strings have been knotted tightly.

Overall, this book was a mix of fun and heartfelt read. It was amazing to witness Harriet’s growth as a person. If you haven’t read this series yet, I suggest you do.
