Lynn Visible by Julia DeVillers

Cover ImageFrom the Publisher: "Lynn Vincent knows all the latest trends and isn't afraid to flaunt her funky style. The problem is, in small-town Pennsylvania, being fashion forward makes Lynn socially backward. And the queen bees at her high school won't let her forget it, especially when her dream of making the IT panel for GlIter Girl—the coolest fashion magazine in teendom—is crushed. But when one of Lynn's unique creations makes it into the hands of a famous designer and onto the runway, it seems that Lynn might finally get her moment in the spotlight." Publisher: Penguin, 2010, 160 pp.
