Reads: Violet By Design


Little ladies who love fashion and the glamorous world of modeling – If you can read a blog, you can read a book. Writer Melissa Walker, who has worked for some of your favorite magazines such as Glamour, ELLEgirl, and Seventeen released her highly praised second Young Adult novel Violet By Design this week. The Violet series tell the story of Violet Greenfield, a high school senior and skyscraper of a girl who is scouted by a high powered modeling agent and whisked to New York City to become the next “It Girl” model , but as one can imagine, the glitz, glamour and the popularity that come with being a model, also attract the pratfalls of betrayal, pressure and disappointment. In Violet By Design, Violet considers giving it up all together…will she?

Those that enjoy the Gossip Girl books will most likely get hooked by this series (do check out the first book Violet on the Runway), available at Amazon.com and other fine bookstores. Remember, reading is fundamental.
