Even if it means stealing her best friend's dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of impossibly handsome model Nick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun read Loved the story & the storyline. Simple & fun. Harriet was very likeable; clumsy, geeky, socially awkward, easy to relate to. It was a fun following her on her journey of finding her true self, what is important to her in life & a very good looking young male model that resembles a lion. Definitely recommending to others & definitely getting the sequel.
