Geek Girl by Holly Smale

Harriet Manners is a geek. Not a model. Definitely not. Completely, utterly, not even the tiniest bit like one. Infinity Models is not the place for a clumsy ginger spouting facts from morning to night. So when she is ‘spotted’ by fashion legacy Yuka Ito-no, the algebra begins to get mixed up with the lipstick. Harriet realises that this is her chance. Her chance to be cool. From now on, fashion will be her god. Whisked off to model in Russia, she really is transformed. Meet the new Harriet Manners, beautiful, graceful, and not even able to walk in high heels, and it’s true, she has to be pushed to the shoot in a wheelchair. Also, just a little side effect, she’s passionately in love with the gorgeous ‘lion-boy’. But Harriet still has to find herself. She still has one lesson to learn…

This book, though with no rude language, does not contain any high quality writing. The plot is very simple, and, through this, you can see that the author is not a professional, but simply writing what she knows. Holly Smale, when a child, was a geek. However, Harriet was characterised well, perhaps by writing in the first person or because Holly Smale knew what she was writing about. As well as this, there is a varying range of very well characterised people.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
