The Lovereading4Kids comment
January 2015 Book of the Month Harriet Manners, heroine of the best selling Geek Girl, is back for an equally engaging third adventure. On the brink of her sixteenth birthday, Harriet is still juggling the vast gulf between her naturally studious nature and the drama of life as a model with the addition of a genuine boyfriend as well. All looks set for a great time in sixth form when Harriet is suddenly relocated to America when her father gets a new job. Is this the beginning of a whole new life for Harriet? Can she keep hold of all the pieces in her roller coaster life?

Picture Perfect by Holly Smale
My name is Harriet Manners, and I'll always be a geek. It's the hilarious third book in the bestselling award-winning Geek Girl series! 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?
