‘My name is Harriet Manners, and I am a geek.’
Books 1 – 3 in the bestselling, award-winning GEEK GIRL series.
Harriet Manners knows that a cat has thirty-two muscles in each ear, a “jiffy” lasts a hundredth of a second, and the average person laughs fifteen times per day. She knows that bats always turn left when exiting a cave and that peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite.
But she doesn’t know why nobody at school seems to like her. So when Harriet is spotted by a top model agent, she grabs the chance to reinvent herself.
Harriet Manners knows a lot of facts. She knows that Geek + Model = a whole new set of graffiti on your belongings, and that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to beat this!
But Harriet doesn’t know where she’s going to fit in once the new baby arrives. And with her summer plans ruined, modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get away.
Harriet Manners knows more facts than most. She knows that New York is the most populous city in the United States and she knows that its official motto is ‘Ever Upward’.
But she knows nothing whatsoever about modelling in the Big Apple and how her family will cope with life stateside. And even more importantly, what to do when the big romantic gestures aren’t coming your way from your boyfriend…
