SUSANNA BARRINGER, TEEN reporter extraordinaire, has the hottest ticket in town, covering Fashion Week for Scene magazine. She’ll see the new collections unveiled, meet the biggest names in fashion, and go behind closed doors to uncover the secrets of style.

But this assignment is harder than squeezing into a size 2. Bribing models with brownies is not the way to get backstage. Nell’s nemesis is trying to lure Susanna to work for her. And Brian McDermott, Susanna’s former crush, has moved back to New York and just might be ready to pick up where they left off. . . .

Will Susanna be left one Manolo short of a pair? Or will this wily reporter land the story and the boy, all in a day’s work?
