VOYA - Mary Ann Darby

"This is an enjoyable series that is made more compelling by the terrific illustrations by Brooke Hagel. As Chloe’s designs and the designs of her competitors emerge, the colored sketches evolve along with the design ideas. Chloe is a likable character, and the backup cast includes a loyal best friend, a sneaky nemesis, and a love interest. . . .Middle school and junior high fashionistas will love this series." - VOYA
