Geek Girl: Model Misfit by Holly Smale
"Harriet Manners is a model—but she feels even less popular and more awkward than she did when she was just a geek. So a summer modeling job in Japan sounds like the perfect vacation, even if she has to bring along her crazy grandma Bunty, and even if she might run into Nick, her gorgeous supermodel ex-boyfriend. No one is going to ruin Harriet's fabulous Tokyo adventure—unless she accidentally ruins it herself. . . ."- summary from Amazon
This series is turning into one of my favorites and I love reading a new entry in it when they come out. It reminds me so much of works from Meg Cabot and Louise Rennison and it's so good to find books like those. Harriet is an awesome and hilarious main character, and her adventures in fashion are so funny and crazy that it's extremely difficult to put the book down. I fly through these books even though they're usually close to or over 400 pages long. It amazes me how quickly I read them.
Overall, a fantastic new book in the series. Please read these books if you love funny contemporaries and support them so they can continue to be published here in the US (They're already up to Book 5 in the UK!). But regardless, I will support Smale however I can get the books. She's such a wonderful, hilarious writer.
