Geek Girl: Picture Perfect by Holly Smale | Book Review
THE STORY | Harriet Manners is about to go on the adventure of a lifetime. Along with her parents and baby sister, Harriet is now in New York. All of this is thanks to a six-month job her father recently accepted. Suddenly what was once going to be a drab season at home (without her boyfriend or best friend), suddenly turns into anticipation for what’s next. She’ll be able to spend nights with her boyfriend, Nick and they’ll be spending those nights out in New York City.
Unbeknownst to Harriet, her father’s job is in New York, but the family will settle in a suburb that’s not exactly anything like New York. Devastated, Harriet tries to make the best of it and still feels further away from Nick than ever. When everyone seems to forget Harriet exists, she decides it’s time she met New York City…
REVIEW | I’ve mentioned numerous times my love of the Geek Girl series. Part of this is because, here in the States, they seem really underrated (they are written by a British author and first published in the U.K.), but maybe that’s just my perception. Either way, these books are adorable.
TV SHOW REVIEW | Date My Dad – A Cute Show To Make you Smile!
Inside these pages, we see Harriet in an entirely new way. No longer is she the docile geek character we’ve come to love. She tries on the shoes of rebellion in this novel, and though it goes against everything Harriet is, we still love her. Book three seems like the perfect place to make a bit of a change in this character’s life, and her personality isn’t the only thing that changes. While I won’t say what else undergoes change, I will say, you may close this book with a tiny bit of heartbreak.
The “adventure” of this novel is fantastic. Even though it comes with a defiant Harriet, the story is still entertaining. I also love that we see the character explore new surroundings in an entirely new place. The adventure of the story is fun and makes for a new kind of “statement” to this story.
If you’ve previously enjoyed Geek Girl and her (mis)adventures, you’ll love this installment, Geek Girl: Picture Perfect. It’s again another winning story that will make you smile, and leaves me ready for ‘All That Glitters.’If you love a relatable and fun-loving character, don't miss this #YALit series! #BOOKREVIEW Geek Girl: Picture Perfect - Watch out New York!
