In the tenth book in the Sew Zoey series, Zoey’s aunt lets Zoey in on a very big secret: She and her fiancé are throwing a surprise wedding! She asks Zoey to make the wedding dress and be a junior bridesmaid. Zoey is so excited about the wedding she could burst—but can’t say a word to anyone except her dad and Marcus. At school, Zoey has some new sewing competition: A boy in her new Home Economics unit is sewing circles around her, and is a strong competitor for a class sewing contest. For the sake of the wedding, can Zoey let go of her desire to win the competition?
Chloe Taylor learned to sew when she was a little girl. She loved watching her Grandmother Louise turn a scrap of blue fabric into a simple-but-fabulous dress, nightgown, or even a bathing suit in an instant. It was magical! Now that she’s grown up, she still loves fashion: It’s like art that you can wear. Chloe has written more than thirty books for children and lives, writes, and window shops in New York City.
