Book Review & Giveaway: Geek Girl 4 – All That Glitters by Holly Smale
Geek Girl is a series aimed at girls around 11-15 years old. The series started with the book Geek Girl which was the number 1 bestselling YA fiction title in the UK in 2013 and was also shortlisted for many major book awards.
Now book number 4 is here — All That Glitters. The series is about Harriet Manners and in this book she is starting sixth form with high hopes for new friends and like-minded students. Many things are going to be different now but will it be in a good way?
The books are very well suited for many young ladies with plenty of interesting aspects of Harriet’s life. She’s a different, clever and refreshing character. She can be quite naive at times but seems to learn from her mistakes. The books cover topics like friendship, love, school, family and bullying — typical coming of age themes that you love to read about when you are a teenager.
Holly Smale’s story telling is realistic (not everything goes to plan and there are consequences) and her characters have a very real feel to them, whether they are likeable or not.
All That Glitters is a funny and surprising story and a great addition to the Geek Girl series. It’s a page-turner that will make you laugh out loud. It’s a perfect book (series) for young adults but can definitely be enjoyed by grownups that are young at heart too!
