"Harriet knows that modelling won't transform you. She knows that being a polar bear isn't necessarily a bad thing (even in a rainforest). And that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to challenge this. What Harriet doesn't know is where she's going to fit in once the new baby arrives. With summer plans ruined, modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get as far away from home as possible. But nothing can prepare Harriet for the craziness of Tokyo, her competitive model flatmates and her errant grandmother's 'chaperoning'. Or seeing Nick everywhere she goes. Can geek girl find her place on the other side of the world or is Harriet lost for good?"--From publisher.

The book is about Harriet and how she really thinks of herself as a model. She also decides to go to Tokyo for a modelling job only to discover that something she thought she had lost is there too. I really enjoyed this book because it helped me understand that Harriet wants the public to see her because she even leaves home so she can travel the world being someone that she isn't. It also, in some way, shows how people today would drop everything and fly off if it means getting half-way across the world or in some way changing themselves. I would give this book a 4/5 star rating.
