Series: Beacon Street Girls by Annie Bryant
My Rating: 3.5 stars
Wait; did I just actually ENJOY this? I did! In fact, I believe this is the best book since Lake Rescue. Well, didn't see that coming!
After reading Lucky Charm, I wrote this series off as finally dead. But I decided to read this one when I had nothing else to do. I'm glad I did!
Fashion Frenzy actually has an enjoyable and (mostly) non preachy plot. Yes, there is some stuff about not bullying, and yes, it is extremely corny, but it's not over-the-top overdone. It was a fun read, in other words.
I loved reading about Katani and Maeve in the Big Apple. Katani is my least favorite Beacon Street Girl, but I sill loved it when she got one of her scarves featured in the fashion show! (Though it was highly unlikely; but books don't have to be completely realistic!)
I liked this book a lot, which was unexpected. Though this series has become highly unpredictable for me, I would recommend this book to fans of Beacon Street Girls.
