Gloss Book review No. 19


gloss
New York, 1963.
Fashion, music and attitudes are changing, and there's nowhere in in the world more exciting. Sherry, Donna, Allison and Pamela have each landed a dream internship at Gloss; America's number-one fashion magazine.
Each girl is trying to make her mark on New York and each finds herself thrown head-first into the buzzing world of celebrity, high-end fashion and gossip. But everything isn't as glamorous as it seems - secrets from the past threaten to shatter their dreams.
They're finding out that romance in New York is as unpredictable and thrilling as the city itself
I bought this book because of my obsession with all things NYC, I thought it sounded a bit Mad-Men meets Gossip Girl meets The City and picked it up in a ‘buy 1 get 1 half price’ deal.
I actually read this in the summer, and to me it is a summer kind of book, not really sure why that is! I enjoyed reading about 1960’s NY, I love that now I’ve been there a couple of times I can really play out the scenes in my head as I read them, having said that this is probably a lot to do with why I enjoyed the book so much, it’s a YA book and very much so. Nothing too taxing on the brain so to speak, but enjoyable as you hear of the four girls coming of age adventures.
