This is exactly what I needed after reading Second Chance Summer and Some Girls Are– a fun, hilarious coming off age story. I felt like I laughed from start to finish. Harriet’s story could be compared to the Ugly Duckling’s except when Harriet transforms, she still ends up being herself and I thought that was great. She’s a certified geek from start to end and I loved that about the story. Although Harriet transforms, it’s mostly inner transformation. In the end, she earns self-confidence and realizes she’s great just the way she is.
The plot may be a little bit unrealistic and some of the characters a bit stereotyped but they were all so fun to read and all of them managed to make me laugh. They’re all adorable and hilarious in their own ways. I don’t know but I find British humour really hilarious and relatable.
I would highly recommend this book if you’re looking for a good contemporary that’ll make you laugh and feel good about yourself
