Product Description

What’s it like to be a super-nerd – and a supermodel? It’s one of many things Harriet Manners knows. Like that the average person eats a ton of food a year. Or the exact length of a nanosecond. But she doesn’t know how to get people to like her. Now Harriet heads off to Japan for a summer on the catwalk. But even the craziest city in the world is still too close to home. Gorgeous Nick is everywhere. And the feeling of a broken heart is something know-it-all Harriet also knows. Laugh-aloud funny and as charmingly odd as a polar bear in a rainforest. A real ex-model’s sassy and addictive take on the catwalk life. We adore it.

Praise for Geek Girl:

“A smart, sassy and very funny debut.” The Bookseller

Holly Smale is the author of the bestselling Geek Girl books. She was unexpectedly spotted by a top London modelling agency at the age of fifteen and spent the following two years falling over on catwalks, going bright red and breaking things she couldn’t afford to replace. By the time Holly had graduated from Bristol University with a BA in English Literature and an MA in Shakespeare she had given up modelling and set herself on the path to becoming a writer.

Geek Girl was the no. 1 bestselling young adult fiction title in the UK in 2013. It was shortlisted for several major awards including the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Branford Boase award, nominated for the Queen of Teen award and won the teen and young adult category of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize and the 11-14 category of the Leeds Book Award.

    Laughing from the first page

    When I found out that Holly was writing a Geek Girl sequel, excitement was an understatement. I really loved Geek Girl and was eager to see what else she could do. When I got it I did however have a slight moment of worrying that it wouldn’t live up to its high expectations- i’ve read many a sequel which are completely unnecessary. Thankfully I wasn’t disappointed even slightly. From the first page I was laughing at Harriets witty comments, getting annoyed at Nicks “tendencies” and feeling sorry for Toby. Next thing I knew, I was reading the acknowledgements. What can I say? Model Misfit is well worthy of five stars – bring on Geek Girl 3!

    Geek Girl Model Misfit is a phenomenal story carrying on 6 six months after the, sharp-witted, intelligent, 15 year old, Harriet Manners becomes an agency model and ends up with a super model boyfriend (Lion Boy)! But right near the beginning she tells us the heart breaking news that Lion Boy dumped her just before her GCSE exams! Once the exams are over it’s the summer holidays and Harriet has a whole summer planned out for her and her best friend Nat, but then Harriet finds out that Nat has to go a farm in France for the summer hols. So when the modelling agency gives her a modelling job in Tokyo for the new label she grabs it by the reins and doesn’t let go. And meets some interesting people along the way including bright and cheerful Rin! This book is an awesome read and I’d definitely rate it for anyone 12+ and I’m giving it 5/5 stars!!! :-)
