I get that they want to help her, but come on. All That Glitters was without a doubt the best book in the series so far. The second-hand embarrassment kind of wincing. And her plan appears to work. I also run a blog with my fiancé, which you can find over at.
There is a fine line for me between social awkward and just bein I have decided on rating this one a 2 star in the end. I think that's both part of why I like her, and why I keep wincing while reading about her trials and tribulations. And I love how Harriet knows a lot of facts; I feel like I've learnt more reading Holly's four books than I have in three years at university! She knows that a comet's tail always points away from the sun. They also like that by the end of the book, she stands up to a girl that bullies her.

This fourth book in the series was just as enjoyable as the previous books but also took a more serious tone towards the end which I loved! Despite originally being planned as a trilogy, six books were released. Why not Celsius, like almost the whole world does and also her country. I especially applaud the way in which Smale managed to keep secrets from us throughout the entire novel.
