Our customer reviews

Three best friends come together to change one life and make fashion history. Nonie loves fashion, but lacks the talent for design. Jenny just wrapped up a Hollywood movie. She's hitting the red carpets, where she's forced to wear hideous dresses. The fashion world is ripping her to shreds. Eddie wants to save the world. She writes a blog and posts fashion news about Jenny to gain more followers. She's also tutoring a young girl from Uganda. Crow loves fashion and sketches designs all over her papers. Eddie uses fashion to help with her reading - as Crow will read if she's interested in the subject. When Nonie meets Crow, she's determined to help her achieve her dreams. She'd never expect that helping Crow would make fashion history. Crow's uber-talented, and soon begins selling her clothes at a stall. Before long, she has a waiting list for her items. Suddenly, great fashion opportunities loom in front of her. Can the three friends help solidify Crow's fashion career? I'll admit, it took me most of the book to care about the characters. In the beginning I couldn't connect with anyone, but then things changed. I began to like the girls and thus the story. I enjoyed learning more about Crow and her life in Uganda. I loved the fashion show and how it all came together, and am glad SEQUINS, SECRETS, AND SILVER LININGS is the start of a more
