Picture ​Perfect (Geek Girl 3.) 2 csillagozás

Holly Smale: Picture Perfect

„My name is Harriet Manners, and I'll always be a geek.”

It's the hilarious third book in the No.1 bestselling, award winning GEEK GIRL series!

Harriet Manners knows more facts that 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 28% of Americans believe we never landed on the moon.

But she knows nothing about modelling in the Big Apple, and how her family will cope with life stateside. Or how to „become a brand”, as the models in New York put it. And, even more importantly, what to do when the big romantic gestures aren't coming from your boyfriend…

Does geek girl go too far this time?

The laugh out loud follow-up to award winning GEEK GIRL and MODEL MISFIT will have you in stitches.

“Don’t be daft,” Nat laughs, tying her hair into an enormous top-knot. “I’ll just ring you after college and we can do coffee or something.”
Do coffee or something?
“Did you know that coffee can actually kill you in high doses, Nat?”
“I wasn’t suggesting 1,000 cups at once, Harriet.”
“Just a hundred will do it,” I say darkly. “Scientists have done tests.”
I’m just about to tell her that coffee was actually discovered by an Ethiopian goat herder who realised his goats were eating the berries and going totally mad, when we turn the corner and both fall silent.

Anyway, the truly great thing about being so chipper all the time is that nothing can really upset you. Not an early-morning start when you’re used to a summer of lie-ins. Not your dog, Hugo, moulting all over your brand-new Special Outfit. Not the prospect of seeing your nemesis again after ten blissful weeks without her.
Not even the fact that it’s the single most important day of your life and nobody has remembered.
Nope. I am a paradigm of calmness and maturity.
Like Gandalf. Or Father Christmas.

It’s a good thing I am newly shiny and happy on a permanent basis, or I’d be throwing a hissy-fit round about now. Instead, I abruptly pull the curtains open so my parents can see the epic day in its full glory.
“FIRE!” Dad yells, whipping the tea towel off his head and peering at me through his fingers. “Ugh, worse. What have we told you about daylight, sweetheart?”
“It’s 9.21am,” I point out. “You’re not vampires.”
I don’t say that with a lot of conviction. My parents have grey skin and red eyes, they’re up all night, rarely eat and seem to communicate without actually talking. The signs aren’t looking good.

Apparently the word ‘infant’ comes from the Latin word infans, which means ‘unable to speak’, but all I can say is: the Ancient Romans obviously never met Tabitha Manners.

Right.
According to today’s schedule, I now have six and a half minutes left. Just six and a half minutes to put my purple flip-flops on, pick a couple of chocolate buttons off the cake, smudge the icing so my parents don’t notice and get to the bench on the corner of the road where my best friend will be waiting for me: eager, bright-eyed and ready to confront our mutual destinies.
I have it timed to absolute perfection.
Unfortunately, I obviously forgot to show the plan to my little sister. Because as I kiss her tiny nose she gives me one bright, adorable smile.
And vomits all over my head.

When I was in Japan I learnt that Buddhist monks in training must eat every single grain of rice in their bowl or it represents ingratitude towards the universe.
I'm pretty sure the same thing applies to chocolate cake.

Honeypuff, New York is the most magical place on earth, but the subway can kiss my cat's pyjamas. Next time, we're so getting a taxi.
