There's nothing run-of-the-mill about working at Skirt, the preeminent fashion magazine. I'm Kira Parker, total fashion junkie. I thought I had it made when I landed this job. Ha. I mean, don't get me wrong—working at Skirt is amazing. And spending the summer in New York City without my parents? Golden. But now I'm up against Daphne Hughes, daughter of the magazine's owner. What Daphne wants, she gets—all wrapped up in a cute Coach bag. She's already got the guy of my dreams and all the right connections. Now she thinks she'll get the plum position working for the editor in chief without even lifting a diamond-adorned pinky? This catwalk is primed for battle.

Carrie Karasyov & Jill Kargman are best buds who met at their all-girls private high school in New York City. They have cowritten two novels for adults, The Right Address and Wolves in Chic Clothing, and two novels for teens, Bittersweet Sixteen and Summer Intern. Carrie is also the author of The Infidelity Pact, and Jill is the author of Momzillas.From School Library Journal:
Grade 7 Up—When Kira Parker submits her fashion ideas to Cotton, a group that is offering a summer internship to one student designer, she is chosen and spends the time working in New York City for the magazine Skirt. At her first meeting, she learns that the magazine owner's daughter, Daphne, and her friends (who are called the Trumpettes with disdain by other staffers) are also interning. The most coveted spot, working directly under the editor-in-chief, is up for grabs. In spite of Kira's hard work, Daphne ends up getting the job, even though she never works and is haughty at every turn. Still, Kira has a fabulous experience that extends outward from the fashion world to encompass learning more about people, about relationships, and about running a business. By the end of the novel, readers will be impressed with her growth. The authors do a great job of describing the ins and outs of fashion couture. This addition to the chick-lit genre is funny and lighthearted, and worth purchasing if you have students who love stories about strong female characters who persevere in the face of adversity—and do so with style.—Emily Garrett, Armstrong Elementary School, Sachse, TX
