Threads: Sequins, Stars and Spotlights

Crow is on the way to becoming an international fashion designer. Jenny’s been discovered by a Broadway composer. Edie still wants to go to Harvard. Nonie… isn’t sure, but knows it’s something fashion-related and wonderful. They’re growing up and on the brink of glittering careers. So why are their lives so complicated? It seems that success demands sacrifices – but which ones are they willing to make? Now, all four girls have big choices and discoveries ahead of them. Who will wait for fame? Who will emerge an outright star? Who will fall in love? And who will turn her back on all her dreams? The answers lie in New York. It’s a long way for Nonie to travel, especially with only one teeny-weeny wheelie bag. But for the sake of her friendships, she’ll go as far as it takes…

  • Yay! It’s finally here! I’ve been waiting for this book to be published since about this time last year! Maybe even longer.

    Sequins, Stars and Spotlights is all about….well, sequins stars and spotlights! This novel seemed to mainly focus on Nonie and Jenny. The girls are all moving on with their careers….except Nonie. Nonie feels stuck. She’s working temprorarily at Miss Teen but all she’s doing is making the tea for the ‘important people.’ Suddenly, she doesn’t know what to do with her life. But all of that is put on hold when her friends start having problems that need to be solved. Jenny admits to something very serious (an amazing and surprising twist.) which almost causes a fall-out between them all. Edie becomes very tired with everything (running her blog, applying for universities, running campaignes, helping her friends, studying, trying to save the world….the usual.) Everything’s happening at once. Will the girls stay friends and manage their lives at the same time?

    AMAZING. The twists in this book, the new characters, the cover, the designs….it’s all amazing. I actually have no complaints about this book, it was fabulous in every way. :) Something extra special about this book is that the (gorgeous) dress on the cover was designed by Sophia Bennett’s competition winner Jewel. I think the dress Jewel designed is fabulous, she did a great job. :)

    This novel is everything I expected and more. It was great! I definitely recommend it for fashion-lovers world wide. I LOVE IT!!! :) 1000000/10! (Or, in more sensible terms, 5/5. xD)
