Booklist Review

Project Runway meets Mean Girls in this fashion-inspired first volume of the Chloe by Design series. Chloe Montgomery has always dreamed of becoming a fashion designer, so when her favorite reality show, Design Diva, offers up a teen version of the show, Chloe knows she has to audition the show's wild challenges will push her creatively. She gets in, but can she overcome her shy instincts and handle criticism from both the judges and her fashion nemesis? While the writing and story line may be a bit simplistic and the characters stock (the nervous protagonist, the supportive best friend, and the archrival frenemy), the book shines in its descriptions of fashion designs. Full-color fashion-sketch illustrations accompany the text, showing off Chloe's and the other competitors' designs. While the outcome is predictable, Chloe's journey (and the fashions that accompany it) make for an enjoyable, fluffy read. Perfect for readers obsessed with fashion, clothing design, and reality TV.--Thompson, Sarah Bean Copyright 2014 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-8-Sixteen-year-old Chloe Montgomery is a self-described fashion addict. Not only does she devour fashion magazines and TV shows, but she is also an aspiring fashion designer. When her favorite fashion reality show, Design Diva (think Project Runway), offers teen designers an opportunity to audition for the teen version of Design Diva, she decides to apply.√ÖWith the support of her parents, best friend Alex, and a few inspirations, she makes the final cut and lands a spot on the show. Much to her chagrin, her nemesis, Nina, also gets a spot. Filming in New York is more difficult than Chloe anticipated, and the competition is fierce and intimidating. Chloe has difficulty conquering her self doubt and her suspicions about Nina's true intentions. As the competition draws to its conclusion, Chloe finds that in order to be successful she must stay true to herself. The protagonist is a relatable character whose struggles with self doubt will resonate with readers. The fun and frothy plot reads quickly, and the fashion sketches add to the enjoyment of the book. This will find a fan base with fashion and reality TV show addicts alike.-Kefira Phillipe, Nichols Middle School, Evanston, IL (c) Copyright 2014.
