Review: A Girl Like Moi: The Fashion Forward Adventures of Imogene by Lisa Barham
"Imogene is obsessed with fashion. Combine that with her talent for trouble (aka maxing out her "emergencies only" AmEx) and suddenly she's not going to chere Paris with her best friend for the summer. No, she must do the unthinkable for a stylish Greenwhich girl such as herself - get a job.
Resourceful as always, Imogene works her connections and lands a dream internship at a fashion forcasting agency in NY. Now she's lunching at Serendipity, first on the line at Barney's warehouse sale, and skoshing seats at fashion week.
But when Imogene's dream is threatened by a cute Italian boy and one very evil intern, she questions what she really wants. And she learns that even in fashion, being true to yourself and following your dreams can go hand in hand."
This book was pretty good, but not my favorite. Imogene was kind of ridiculous and I can't really see any of the events happening in "real life". But if you're looking for a cute, light read... this could be the book for you. I especially liked the little illustrations on the sides of pages... Be warned, this book is very predictable!
