Harriet Manners knows a lot of facts. New York is the most populous city in the United States. Its official motto is ‘Ever Upward’. 27% of Americans believe we never landed on the moon. But she has no idea about modelling Stateside. Or, even more importantly, what to do when the big romantic gestures aren’t coming from her boyfriend…
Overview *Contains Spoilers*
I absolutely loved this book! It was perfect in every way! The characters were well developed. The dilemmas and situations that she faces were realistically portrayed right from page one. In this book, we see once again, that Harriet Manners has absolutely no clue about boys which makes her geekiness stand out even more. She blindly follows the advice from another girl who believes that she knows everything about boys, but Nick (aka Lion Boy) is not your average boy. He is a model and can’t always be available for Harriet at every moment of every day. Harriet is so caught up in her own little world, despondent because of the lack of modelling and upset at being whisked away to New York at a moment’s notice, only to find out that she is not actually staying in the city, that she mistakenly believes everyone is out to get her and that nobody likes her, least of all her parents and her boyfriend.
This book is a rollercoaster of emotions as the reader is brought along on Harriet’s journey to resume her modelling career, put up with a ‘fake’ A level tutor who calls Harriet stupid, and a boyfriend who she believes is neglecting her. Along with all that, her parents forget that it is her birthday and her boyfriend mixes up the train stations so doesn’t get to see Harriet on the special date. Everything seems to go wrong for Harriet that could possibly go wrong, but everything comes together for her at the end of the book.
I loved every moment of this book from start to finish and I was so sad when I had finished it. I would definitely recommend this book to all ages because it was fantastic!
