Product Description



"Loved GEEK GIRL. Wise, funny and true, with a proper nerd heroine you're laughing with as much as at. Almost." James Henry, writer of Smack the Pony and Green Wing

"A feel-good satisfying gem that will have teens smiling from cover to cover, and walking a little taller after reading" – Books for Keeps

“I would highly recommend Geek Girl to anyone who likes a good laugh and enjoys a one-of-a-kind story.” Mia,Guardian Children’s Books website

Product Description

“My name is Harriet Manners, and I am still a geek.”

MODEL MISFIT is the sequel to award-winning No. 1 UK debut GEEK GIRL.

Harriet Manners knows a lot of facts.

She knows that humans have 70,000 thoughts per day.

She knows that Geek + Model = a whole new set of graffiti on your belongings.

And that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to beat this.

But Harriet doesn’t know where she’s going to fit in once the new baby arrives. And with her summer plans ruined, modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get away.

Can Harriet cope with the craziness of Tokyo, her competitive model flatmates and her errant grandmother’s ‘chaperoning’. Or seeing gorgeous Nick everywhere she goes?

Will geek girl find her place on the other side of the world?

The sequel to the award-winning debut GEEK GIRL.

3.0 out of 5 stars Model Misfit by Holly Smale 3 Nov 2013
After reading Geek Girl earlier this year and thoroughly enjoying it, I was overjoyed to hear that Holy Smale was releasing a sequel. I had high hopes for Model Misfit and the early reviews that I read sounded promising. The thing is, after reading Model Misfit for myself, I didn't necessarily agree with what others said.

Sure, I still found Harriet a likable character; easy to relate to, smart and funny. As in Geek Girl, she's still uncomfortable in her own skin and she also still has a love/hate relationship with modelling. But she's matured. So when she's invited to Japan to spend the summer modelling, she jumps at the chance for an adventure.

In Japan, Smale introduces us once again to a whole cast of characters both old and new. Wilbur, Harriet's agent, is still as cute as ever with his pet names; Yuka, the designer, is still as cold and distant. Then there's the new characters; new models who befriend Harriet in Japan. These new characters add so much to Model Misfit as they slot in nicely among the cast of characters we already know.

My main problem with Model Misfit is that I just couldn't seem to connect to the story in the way I did when I first read Geek Girl. I didn't find Harriet's geekiness as refreshing as I did previously nor did I enjoy the modelling hiccoughs that happened throughout. For me, Model Misfit seemed forced in comparison to its predecessor which is a huge shame as I was eagerly anticipating its release.

Overall Model Misfit is a cute, contemporary read that is a reasonable sequel to Geek Girl, though personally I would have kept it as a standalone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous sequel 26 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Review: "Never underestimate the power of a well-placed apostrophe." This quote just sums up how much I loved this book. I spend my life telling children how to use apostrophes, rolling my eyes at misplaced apostrophes in shops and so the fact that this author understands the importance of a good apostrophe shows just how awesome she is! I was very excited about this sequel, I was literally holding my breath waiting for it to come out, and it was just as good as I expected. It was fabulous to catch up with Harriett again and you are thrown right into the action with her, back into her world of obscure facts, exams and a little bit of modelling thrown in!

Harriett is such a fab character and its great to be able to learn her life lessons along with her. This books really does show her growing up. Whilst she develops and has adventures in the first Geek Girl book, she goes out on her own, on her own to another country, on her own to model in another country and so her character really does have to mature and develop! Her friends are all there in this sequel too. Toby plays much more of a role in this book, and 'Lion Boy' much less of a role-I loved this! Nat is there too, and my favourite character of all-Wilbur! Wilbur and Harriett's dad really are just pure comedy genius-i defy anyone not to laugh at the things they come out with and the ways in which they challenge our poor misguided model.

The storyline of this novel is really quite different from Geek Girl, I was really pleased to discover this, Whilst Geek Girl was most definitely a winning formula, its nice that this novel has a bit more of a mystery about it, the added aspect of travelling to Tokyo, and also of course, has Harriett dealing with a broken heart!
