A Girl Like Moi

Imogene, a sixteen year old Greenwich style-magnet lives for fashion: Prada, Lanvin, Dior...You name it and she has it in her closet. So she's pretty thrilled about going to fashionable Paris for the summer with her best friend (and future clothing designer) Evie. But there's bad news ahead-after a fiasco at McDonald's and credit card issues, Imogene is banned from going to Paris. Instead, she's going to spend her summer quite differently: instead of lounging around Barneys, Imogene has to do the unthinkable-get a job. Just when Imogene thinks that her summer is going down the drain, she finds her perfect job: an internship at the trendiest, famous international fashion forecasting agency, Hautelaw, smack-dab in the middle of New York City. Now Imogene's checking out the latest trends, eating at the most chic restaurants in the city, hanging out with supermodels, going to the hottest fashion shows and discussing styles with famous designers. Unfortunately, Imogene's job might be threatened by the distraction of a very cute (and fashionable) Italian boy who might just like Imogene back, an evil coworker who will stop at nothing to make Imogene look bad, and deadlines. Will Imogene follow her dream? And what does she really want to do with her life? 
   This book was simply smashing. It was delightful, quick, and tremendously well-written. If you want a light, easy, and fashion-forward summer read, then A Girl Like Moi is the perfect match! Bookworm can't wait to see what's next from Lisa Barham!
