Geek Giel 3 - Picture Perrfect - Holly Smale



Harriet Manners knows more facts than most.


She knows that New York is the most populous city in the United States.

She knows that its official motto is ‘Ever Upward’.

She knows that one in thirty-eight people living in the US lives there.


But she knows nothing whatsoever about modelling in the Big Apple and how her family will cope with life stateside. Or ‘becoming a brand’ as the models in New York say. And even more importantly, what to do when the big romantic gestures aren’t coming your way from your boyfriend…


Does geek girl go too far this time?


So of course I was nose deep in this as soon as it became available to me. I am a huge Harriet fan and could not wait to find out what she's been up to and what disasters she was going to get herself into this time. 


seven weeks have past since we saw her last. She's now the official girlfriend to lionboy or Nick as we know him, she's not done any modelling at all since she quit her job with Yuko Ito in Tokyo, and baby sister Tabby is the apple of her eye, so you could say things are pretty perfect in her world. 


I have to be completely honest here and say Picture Perfect hasn't been my favourite out of the series so far, but it was really good.  The plot is good and at times it does have gripped, but there are just a few flat parts too. It's lovely to see old characters mixed with new giving us a bit of tension and excitement. I did feel extremely sorry for Harriet in this one though, times are hard for her and she's learning the hard way about growing up, it doesn't help that Alexa is back again and being a super bitch as usual.  


Harriet yet again, with her OCD, list making, diary entries and constant facts have you crying with laughter. She has to be the only person to quote a fact during the stupidest times. I still do love the facts though. I love that they are part of whom Harriet is, part of the story being told, and it's educating you in a way you don't realise. As a YA series I think this is amazing. 


It's hard not to give anything away, so I'm going to stop here and just say I'd definitely recommend this book to you all, but I would read the first two books first.
