"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.

One star because juvenile writing and cheating. Dude has a great girlfriend who is nothing but good to him, and yet, he forgets her in a snap of fingers when a ''gorgeous'' girl starts paying attention to him. It's okay to feel attracted to somebody else, but it's not okay to act on it when you'r...

Susan Juby is a joy. Her ability to blend humor with gut-wrenching emotion is one in a million. Another winner by one of my all time favorite authors.

“It was beginning to occur to me that I was a little too in love with stereotypes and preconceptions.”

The Fashion Committee was much better than I had anticipated. I am not the biggest fan of light c...

I think this would have been a better book without John's perspective. It diluted Charlie's much stronger story.

The Fashion Committee is a story about a fashion competition that had so much potential. The concept is so original, but I found the main characters to be annoying and unrealistic. I also didn’t enjoy the excessive use of random French words and the main character’s habit of referring to herself...

4.5 Stars. This was a bright shining star of a surprise!! I wasn't expecting to love it so much, but the characters in this book crawled into my heart.

A delight from start to finish. Trademark Juby -- all breezy and light sounding, full of dark depths, because life isn't all peaches and cream. Funny but mostly I teared up from heartbreak - there's a lot here. Addiction and resilience, issues of culture and class, all tied up in sequins and lace...

Well, that was a huge waste. The writing was a bit, well, over-detailed. When I say over-detailed I mean, it's all over the place. (I'll give an example--The character is doing something and then, it adds a backstory, then back to the character again complaining an issue.)The story itself just lo...

The Fashion Committee is a deceptively lighthearted, entertaining, and uplifting contemporary YA novel that celebrates art and creativity while at the same time touching upon a number of serious issues, such as absent parents, drug abuse, bullying, and socio-economic inequalities.
The characters i...

I'm two for two with loving Susan Juby. Like The Truth Commission, this book takes a dishy, lighthearted concept and peoples it with characters facing some seriously hard shit in seriously believable ways. I thought Charlie Dean was going to be a fashionista bubblehead, but instead she's a goddam...
