AND NOW…THE FIRST CHAPTER:
One of the best things about blogging is the chance to experience new authors and I can remember the first time I read Melody Carlson and it was through blogging that I got to discover her.
I have been very lucky in gettng several of her YA books and to be included on so many great tours of her books. I have to say I have enjoyed them all and this new series is no exception. I am only into book two but so far so good. Fingers are crossed.
Once again book two opens up where book one left off.
One of the benefits of the girls (Paige and Erin) reality tv show On The Runway is that they get to attend fashion week in NYC. Several NYC landmarks were mentioned and it brought back memories of NYC for me. I wonder what it would be like to be in NYC during fashion Week?
Paige is super excited that she gets to experience Fashion Week and she craves the attention especially if it involves the top fashion designers, and as we read we quickly discover that this new found fame is going to her head and she is going to do what ever she wants to do and doesn’t care.
Mean while Erin is really trying to get the work out and promote the designers who are going Eco friendly. You know the ones who are trying to do good in the world? Well Erin is discovering that no one seems to really take her seriously. Even Paige is giving her a hard time. I have to applaud Erin for bringing this up and I think we need to take a lesson from her.
So the question is will Paige be able to keep her cool or will all this fame finally get to her and make her do things she might not normally do?
What will the girls think about Paris?
