Reader’s Annotation: Book one of the trilogy titled The Fashion Forward Adventures of Imogene, A Girl Like Moi is an absorbing account of one sixteen year old’s quest to unleash the fashion diva within.

Summary: A self-described “should have,” Imogene knows she’s between worlds. Neither an “it” girl, nor a poseur, she simply wants the opportunity to showcase her talent for spotting trends and predicting next season’s must-haves. Imogene’s opportunity arrives in the form of a summer internship with the hottest fashion forecasting company in the Big Apple. But can Imogene concentrate enough on her job while she’s crushing on a certain Italian hottie? And is she smart enough to outmaneuver an unscrupulous rival intern? This story, with color illustrations by Sujean Rim, is a fashion feast not to be skipped!

Notes: Imogene is a dazzling, witty ingénue who could pass for the younger sister of Elle Woods (of Legally Blonde). Her story continues with Project Paris and Accidentally Fabulous.
