The 3rd book in the series and I won't spoil it for you, but we see Harriet and her family move to the US. It's a book full of humour and rarely takes itself very seriously.
Aimed especially at young women aged around 11+, my 14 year old daughter has read the 1st book in the series but not the 2nd, and now reading the 3rd book she felt it is not necessary to have read the others first in order to enjoy Picture Perfect, it works on it's own.
Here are the main points from her review -
- Best for age 13+
- Lots of big words like 'propitiously' unlike lots of boring teen books
- Relatable to girls 13-16
- Funny and upsetting
- Makes you want to read the whole series
- Not the same as all of the other 'teen' books and shows you the world from a 'geek' point of view, however still has the enemy, best friend, boyfriend, the love triangle and the parents she feels she hates.
- Double thumbs up
- Ending makes you cry
This book is mainly aimed at pre-teen and teenage girls and we think it hits the mark just right. The language is grown up and doesn't condescend, but the themes are not too mature. My daughter read it in 2 days, and at 400 pages I think that's a good measure of how much she enjoyed it.
