School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
“These books, nominally about exploring fashion identities, will fly off library shelves due to the superabundance of celebrity photos. . . . Pictured celebs seem to be chosen in part for their durability—Taylor Swift and Solange Knowles are likely to be well known for a while—giving these books a fighting chance of remaining relevant for a few years or until their bindings wear out.” —School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
“The design of each title echoes the style presented (batik patterns for boho, for instance), and the information is accessible, helpful, and should inspire kids to express themselves.” —Booklist
“The books in this series are a fun mix of fashion and self-discovery, with a little DIY thrown in for good measure…. Emphasis is placed on exploring options to find the best way to highlight the reader’s own personal style.” —VOYA
