Far From Perfect


Holly Smale


The second sensational book in the Valentines series – a hilarious and heart-aching story about the impossible standards for being a girl.

Be yourself but, you know, someone else...

Enthusiastic but not desperate; calm but not dull; funny but not try-hard; sparky but not crazy; feisty but not aggressive; beautiful but relatable; elegant but not icy; confident but not arrogant; feminine but not girly; nice but not boring.

Faith Valentine has it all – fame, money and extraordinary beauty. But what she wants more than anything is a quiet life away from the cameras. Except nobody ever asks Faith what she wants, and her family’s expectations are crushing her.

The world thinks she’s perfect, but is there is more to perfection than meets the eye?

Holly Smale wanted to write from the age of five when she discovered that books didn’t grow on trees like apples. Her passion for stories led her on a number of adventures, including modelling, teaching children in Japan, PR and backpacking across dozens of countries around the world. She has a degree in English literature and an MA in Shakespeare and Feminism from Bristol University. The Valentines series is the blockbusting follow-up to the number-one, internationally bestselling and acclaimed Geek Girl series, which sold over three million copies in thirty languages and won the Teen and Young Adult category of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.
