Book SynopsisAs Zoey prepares for a sewing contest, she realizes her friendships are also in need of tailoring. In the second book in the Sew Zoey series, things are going great for Zoey on the fashion front: She meets a real designer who tells her she should enter a big sewing contest, and she finds out that her idol, Daphne Shaw, is a fan of her blog! But off the runway, Zoey's having friend trouble times two. First her best friend Kate gets her braces off--and starts getting a lot of attention from boys, including Zoey's crush, Lorenzo. Is she still the same sweet Kate on the inside? Then Zoey's newest friend, Libby, thinks Zoey is friends with her only because her aunt is one of the contest judges. Zoey thought fashion emergencies were tough...but compared to friendship emergencies, they're a cinch. How can she prove that she's friends with Libby for the right reasons and fix her relationship with Kate? In a way that is totally Zoey!
"An aspiring fashion designer is the affable heroine of this first book in the Sew Zoey series. . . . In a smoothly written story of overcoming challenges with ingenuity and style, Taylor shows a knack for characterization and dialogue, and her detailed descriptions of Zoey's designs will entice young fashionistas."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"Most novels about fashion end up being more about little divas than about the clothing; this is an exception. This story celebrates the rewards of personal creativity and risks of self-expression. . . . This book will appeal to a middle-grade crowd that isn't into vampires and dystopias, as well as to those who create art with their hands."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"The characters are enjoyable and well developed, and the plot is humorous and entertaining. The black-and-white drawings that open each chapter add a bit of fashion flair. With a touching ending that will leave readers with a warm, fuzzy feeling, this novel will appeal to young fashionistas."-- "School Library Journal"
"Zoey Webber is a funky fashionista stuck in a gray-polyester-uniform world. The first book in a delightful new series, this will appeal to any girl finding her own style. Zoey is a bubbly and vivacious character who doesn't let insecurities take command."-- "Booklist"
Zoey is back and still sewing and blogging in the second book in this upbeat series. . . . When she comes to the conclusion that she has to patch her friendships in the same way she patches her torn jeans, determined and creative Zoey reweaves both friendships and makes them stronger.-- "Booklist"
