Book Summery (Via Goodreads):Harriet Manners is a model.
She used to be a geek, but now she has transformed into a creature of grace and sophistication. She is completely at one with the world of fashion.
Except she’s not.
In fact, Harriet feels even less popular and more awkward now than she did when she was just a geek. So when Yuka Ito invites her to go to Japan and be the face of her new label, Harriet seizes the chance to get away.
Harriet might have to bring along her crazy grandma Bunty, and she might run into Nick, the gorgeous costar who unceremoniously dumped her two months ago. But no one is going to ruin her fabulous Tokyo summer.
Unless she accidentally ruins it herself…
I read the first book in this series, Geek Girl, earlier this year (review found HERE) and just loved it. This second installment picks up right where the first book left off. You cannot help but fall in love with Harriet. She tries so hard to be many things to many people, but at her core, she is 100% geek. Her geekiness really shines through this time around. I love all of her fun facts that she lists. They add a whimsical touch. The setting is mainly in Japan which provides a colorful background. Her friends are back with the addition of her "model" flatmates she lives with in Japan. Her main love interest is back as well. Smale does an excellent job with this flirty, and sometimes rocky, YA romance. It's one of the best parts of the story. This is a quick, cute read. Perfect if you're looking for something a little lighter. I can't wait for the next book in the series!
Cover Art Commentary:
I just adore the (US) covers of this series. They are so playful and colorful. I, of course, love the glasses!!!
