Publisher Description

In this dystopian thriller, fashion is making everyone a victim: “A captivating and fast-paced ride” (Joelle Charbonneau, New York Times–bestselling author of The Testing trilogy).
 
In Marla Klein and Ivy Wilde’s world, teens are the gatekeepers of culture. A top fashion label employs sixteen-year-old Marla to dictate hot new clothing trends, while Ivy, a teen pop star, popularizes the garments that Marla approves.
 
Both girls are pawns in a calculated but seductive system of corporate control, and both begin to question their world’s aggressive levels of consumption. Now they’re joining forces to subversively resist and overturn the industry that controls every part of their lives . . .
 
Smart, provocative, and entertaining, this thrilling page-turner questions the cult-like mentality of fame and fashion. Are you in or are you out?
 
“Through its likable characters, sly humor, and smart, fast-moving plot, this entertaining debut raises serious questions about the costs of disposable fashion and pursuit of celebrity.” —Kirkus Reviews
