In a Nutshell: Luminous finale laden with laughter and love
There’s more sunshine, soul-searching and sticky situations than you can shake a Eucalyptus branch at in this scorching conclusion to a series that’s captured the hearts, minds and funny bones of millions of readers around the globe.
Now sixteen and a fully-fledged sixth-former, Harriet the model, geek and complete control freak is embarking on a trip of a lifetime to Australia with best friend Nat (“Sartorial Genius, Temper-Loser, Truth-Sayer”) and her glorious grandmother Bunty. “We may be going Down Under, but I’m on top of the world”, Harriet enthuses as their adventure begins and, truly embracing the road trip vibe, she’s even promised Nat that she’ll be “more laid-back and free-flowing moving forward”. With Australia covering over 7.6 million square kilometres, there’s obviously little chance of Harriet bumping into her Ozzie ex-boyfriend, right? Well, not quite…and it’s not long before an emotional rollercoaster is set in motion, sending Harriet reeling up and down, Down Under!
The themes of friendship, fitting in and finding yourself radiate through the series to exhilarating effect and, while fans will miss Harriet, this fabulously fitting finale to her voyage of self-discovery will also leave readers breathless for what Holly Smale does next.
