My Book:

     Seventeen-year-old Scarlett, unlike her theatrically-gifted parents, is not one to spend time near a spotlight. Scarlett dreams of becoming a renowned fashion designer, where she can flex her creative talents away from a crowd. So it’s no surprise when she sneaks into her school’s costume shop to explore the racks. Unexpected, however, is coming face-to-face with Nathaniel Wilder, a talented theater student who piques a new interest.

     With fashion still as her main priority, Scarlett vows to learn how to make a 50s-inspired dress for her best friend, Macie. After all, she needs a strong portfolio of work to help her get into her dream school, Fashion Institute of Technology. The one problem? She has no idea how to operate a sewing machine. Thanks to Nathaniel’s encouragement, Scarlett decides to shadow the school’s drama teacher to practice her skills, hoping to fuse her passion for fashion with theater...and be closer to him for the spring play.


     Scarlett’s designs are unfolding, but a distressing event involving Macie shakes everyone in Scarlett’s world—causing their friendship to falter and Nathaniel to unexpectedly pull away. With building stressors threatening the rest of the year, including a rival who wants to tarnish Scarlett’s reputation, Scarlett must rely on her determined spirit and newfound sewing skills to keep her fashion dreams—and her most important relationships—from unraveling.

What Readers



This book is so sweet! It’s the perfect representation of what it’s like to fall in love for the first time. There were so many moments I laughed out loud or had to cover my face out of second-hand embarrassment for the characters. It was such an entertaining, light-hearted read, and I loved it!

All the feels of teen romance and all the tension of high school drama (in both meanings of the word) impeccably described by a spirited narrator. Scarlett's humorous insights and
genuine descriptions of

her emotions make her a winning protagonist.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I particularly liked the multifaceted protagonist. She was shy and feisty and thoughtful and strong. Through her ongoing inner monologue, this book accurately 

portrayed the emotional roller coaster that is high school.
