Susan Juby’s new book THE FASHION COMMITTEE demands a playlist full of various styles of music celebrating a common theme: fashion.
Happy release day to Susan Juby‘s The Fashion Committee! The story is about two teens who enter a fashion designer competition in order to win a scholarship to a local private art school. We found the book to be fun and funny, attention-grabbing, and even often times very real.

We’ve also included the official giveaway below so you can enter for a chance to win one of five copies the publisher will be giving.

“The Fashion Committee is another winner by one of my all time favorite authors.”–Meg Cabot, New York Times bestselling author of the The Princess Diaries and Mediator series
Charlie Dean is a style-obsessed girl who eats, sleeps, and breathes fashion. John Thomas-Smith is a boy who forges metal sculptures in his garage and couldn’t care less about clothes. Both are gunning for a scholarship to the private art high school that could make all their dreams come true. Whoever wins the fashion competition will win the scholarship–and only one can win.
Told in the alternating voices of Charlie’s and John’s journals, this hilarious and poignant YA novel perfectly captures what it’s like to have an artistic drive so fierce that nothing–not your dad’s girlfriend’s drug-addicted ex-boyfriend, a soul-crushing job at Salad Stop, or being charged with a teensy bit of kidnapping–can stand in your way.
With black and white art custom-created by fashion and beauty illustrator Soleil Ignacio, the book is a collector’s item, perfect for anyone with a passion for fashion.
