From the Back Cover
Tori Edwards jumps at the chance to move from Winnipeg to New York City with her family. After all, NYC is the place to be for an aspiring fashion designer, and her new high school has access to a placement program with FIT—the Fashion Institute of Technology. Life is fuller and more chaotic than she imagined, but she hangs on between boy—troubles, portfolio—building, and struggling to find perfect accessories. Then, just as it looks like Tori might achieve all she has dreamed, shocking news from her parents unravels her carefully designed plans and she is forced to look beyond the pages of a fashion magazine for answers.See all Product Description

The story is about Tori, a 15-year old who wants to be a fashion designer. Her family moves to New York City for her father's work, but also so she can pursue her dream. This book isn't a fluffy read. Tori's family experiences some problems and Tori is forced to choose between doing what she wants and what is right.
The part of the book that I liked best was the description of New York City, it almost became a character of its own, and the humour. The book is written from Tori's perspective, which is why so many of my female students enjoyed it.
I highly recommend this book for girls ages 12-15.
