About The Book
As a new school year begins, everyone and everything starts to change. Can Zoey keep up? Includes “Sew Zoey” blog posts and fashion illustrations.
In the ninth book in the Sew Zoey series, quite a few people have a change of heart—and clothes. One of Zoey’s frenemies asks for Zoey’s help choosing a back-to-school outfit. Zoey’s friend Priti shows up to school with a new look and gets mixed reviews. And Kate is nursing a swimming injury, so she suddenly has tons of free time…and wants to spend it with Zoey. But between helping her frenemy and attending fittings for a tween TV star who wants to buy one of her outfits, Zoey is too busy. Kate fears that Zoey is changing. Could she be right?

Raves and Reviews
"Most novels about fashion end up being more about little divas than about the clothing; this is an exception. This story celebrates the rewards of personal creativity and risks of self-expression. . . . This book will appeal to a middle-grade crowd that isn’t into vampires and dystopias, as well as to those who create art with their hands."
– Kirkus Reviews
"An aspiring fashion designer is the affable heroine of this first book in the Sew Zoey series. . . . In a smoothly written story of overcoming challenges with ingenuity and style, Taylor shows a knack for characterization and dialogue, and her detailed descriptions of Zoey’s designs will entice young fashionistas."
– Publishers Weekly
"Zoey Webber is a funky fashionista stuck in a gray-polyester-uniform world. The first book in a delightful new series, this will appeal to any girl finding her own style. Zoey is a bubbly and vivacious character who doesn’t let insecurities take command."
"The characters are enjoyable and well developed, and the plot is humorous and entertaining. The black-and-white drawings that open each chapter add a bit of fashion flair. With a touching ending that will leave readers with a warm, fuzzy feeling, this novel will appeal to young fashionistas."
– School Library Journal
