More and more teens are exploring the world of fashion. And for those For those teen fashionistas, author Olivia Bennett has created a unique fashion fiction series, the Allegra Biscotti series about a girl whose passion for creative expression through fashion is more than a hobby-it’s an outlook on life! Adopting a secret identity to protect herself from the limelight, under-the-radar 8th grade student Emma Rose becomes Allegra Biscotti, Queen of the Runway-whipping up cutting-edge designs and delighting the world with her unique sense of fashion in the long awaited sequel, Who What Wear.
Emma is all about wearing clothes that express “who you are”-not who others think you should be, and the Allegra Biscotti series celebrates friendship, fashion and following your dreams.
I (well, rather my daughters) got a chance to read this book and they loved it! My high school age daughter said that even though this book is meant for girls in grades 3-8, she really enjoyed it as well! She loved the cute illustrations and said that the book was a very easy read.
My daughters thought that all the characters where very lovable and my daughter wishes that she had a guy friend like Charlie. (Emma’s best guy friend) My teenage daughter also wishes that there was a real Allegra Biscotti. (she say’s that she would snatch up her clothing line if she was real!)
All in all my daughters really enjoyed this book and think that’s it’s the perfect book for girls! They cannot wait to read the third book in the series. (they also want to read the first book)
