REVIEW: Tokyo Cover Girls 


Title: Tokyo Cover Girls 

Author: Jackie Amsden 

Genre : contemporary, ya

Synopsis:

New York has Jacobs, Paris has Chanel, Milan has Versace and Tokyo has . . . Hello Kitty toilet plungers? With its cute-obsessed catalogue and magazine market, anyone who is anyone knows that modeling in Japan means being at the bottom of the fashion industry. Blake, Jess, and Hailey are doing their best to survive yet another casting where pigtails and toddler-impressions are a must when they stumble upon the opportunity of a lifetime. The prestigious Satsujin company has selected them to compete for a campaign that will transform the winner from commercial nobody to haute couture superstar faster than you can say Vogue Italia.

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐

REVIEW: 

This book is about model’s life which we all know was never been so easy, the author gives a twist by supplying different challenges for the characters. Be captivated by their journey to modeling as they go around Tokyo. A different type of reading that models will surely pick up because if curiosity. This Contemporary ya book is far different from contemporaries I have read before.
