Project Paris written by Lisa Barham is about two girls named Imogene  and Evie who are best friends and get a fashion internship in Paris over the summer.  While interning the girls run into a number of problems, ranging from wardrobe malfunctions to the terrors of dating hot french boys. The big challenge of the book happens after the girls get to Paris and find out that there’s a strike going on… a strike held by the models, and they have to figure out how to untangle the mess made from the strike in time for fashion week.

I really liked this book because I’m obsessed with fashion. I love that the author included brand names and the description of Paris is really accurate ( I went to Paris this past summer, and I saw some of the places mentioned in the book). Because of all the details and descriptions I feel like the characters and setting of this book are so real, and Imogene and Evie could be some of my best friends if they were alive. This book is perfect for teenage girls because it highlights all the things we think are important like fashion, boys and dreams coming true. More good news is that Lisa Barham wrote another book called A Girl Like Moi which gives the reader more adventures and laughs with Imogene and Evie. I can’t wait to read it again, and I hope there will be more books like this to come.
