Book 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.

    About the Author

    Holly Smale is the author of Geek Girl, Model Misfit and Picture Perfect. 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.

    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.

    By Ancient Mariner TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Energetic, cheerful and charmingly funny, the Geek Girl series fits in perfectly as a prelude to Louise Rennison's Georgia Nicolson and Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones. Georgia Nicolson seems like a "real" teenager and Bridget Jones is a more adult version of such a teen character, and both can be achingly funny and touching. But, for bigger than life antics and zesty good humor I'm happy to turn to Harriet Manners. The Geek Girl books read like a stoked middle grader's idea of what a great, fun teenaged life could be, and that's a very nice recommendation.

    "Geek Girl" was supposed to be the first book in a trilogy, but it was so wildly successful in the U.K. and so loaded up with awards, that the trilogy has now been expanded to a planned six volume series, (of which four have been published in the U.K.). This book is the second in the series. It offers the same appealing Harriet, but we also see a good bit of the supporting players, which is fine because there is a broad range of characters on offer, most of whom have charms of their own.

    First off, it's nice to have parents who aren't idiots or louts. Harriet has a good relationship with her Dad and step-Mom, and they get some of the best, and certainly most knowing, lines. Harriet's best friend Nat is everything you could want in a best friend, and lights up her scenes. Guys aren't quite so successful, and sometimes feel just like place holders for real characters, but that's O.K. because the point is to focus on Harriet and her travails.

    I like the fact that we aren't heavily into Orange County mean girls or pretty Manhattan rich bitch liars. There's some of that, but it isn't the main focus and it is doesn't overwhelm this otherwise light and frothy concoction.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect sequel for Harriet!! 5 Aug. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I LOVED this book!! I adored Harriet in the first book but she's even better now! I love how she didn't change who she was even as her career took off. I love how she isn't ashamed of who she is. I think Harriet Manners is a great role model for young girls and have recommended this series to my 12 year old niece. She's like Harriet, clumsy, smart, sweet, loving, insecure but has a heart of gold. I want her to see that she is perfect, like Harriet is.

    I adored Rin!! What a cutie!! Bunty is an amazing character too. And Wilbur, with an Bur, not an Iam... What can I say?? He is the funniest thing ever! Love him! He cracks me up!! And Yuka is still terrifying! Richard and Annabel are, as always, funny, warm and crazy. The kind of parents who embarrass the hell out of you, but that you wouldn't trade for anything in the world.

    I loved the exotic setting of Tokyo. I don't think I've ever read a book set there and it was interesting to read about it. It sounds so alive and buzzing! Gorgeous and exciting and just a little bonkers (Kylie Monogue...)

    The relationships at the heart of Geek Girl are what makes me love these books. Nat and Harriet as best friends are believable and real. Nick and Harriet are quite a typical young couple and I like that about them. Harriet and her parents, whilst they're totally bonkers, they're a "normal" kind of family dynamic that is relatable to a lot of people. That makes these books so easy to read and feel something.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Holly’s writing style is absolutely spot on. 19 Feb. 2014
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    After reading Geek Girl at the beginning of last year, I was looking forward to catching up with Harriet and Nick. This book starts at the end of the school year and Harriet and her friends are breaking up for the summer holidays. Harriet has made a comprehensive spreadsheet of all the different activities Nat, Toby and her can take part in over the summer. However, when Nat declares she has to go to France as punishment over the holidays, Harriet feels disappointed. She needs to find a way to keep herself busy that doesn’t include hanging out with her embarrassing dad and her pregnant step mum. Cue the modelling job of a lifetime: Tokyo.

    Harriet flies out to Tokyo and begins her modelling job but as always, things don’t quite go to plan and with an irresponsible grandmother, two new flat mates, Wilbur the camp as anything agent and Nick all in the mix, something is bound to go terribly wrong.

    Holly’s writing style is absolutely spot on. For a younger reader it is littered with comical slapstick moments but then for an older reader it is also laced with wit and irony which adds a whole new layer to the plot. The idea of Toby being Harriet’s ‘stalker’ is just brilliant and Wilbur as a character is, what I imagine to be, a cross between Alan Carr and Gok Wan. I also love the addition of Harriet’s father and step-mum; they are the typical, cringe inducing, embarrassment of parents that we are all used to.

    Harriet is a really great character to go on a journey with, there is always some kind of drama waiting for her around the next corner but it’s always exciting and quite reassuring to see her deal with all of the problems and come out of the other side as a much more experienced and well-rounded character.
