Reviews

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
