Big Apple. Bigger Problems.The success of the Forrester sisters’ On the Runway TV show lands them a hot ticket to Fashion Week in New York City. Paige is determined to garner the attention of New York’s top designers, but her newfound fame threatens to go to her head. Erin wants to help promote the work of some eco-minded designers, but struggles to be taken seriously. Can Paige keep her prima donna behavior in check? Will Erin’s involvement hurt the people she’s really trying to help? Success in the big city comes with even bigger challenges, and as the pressure grows, so does the drama.

Hott Review:

Catwalk was a change of pace for me. Completely different from anything else I’ve read. It’s a YA novel, but first person and not romance or mystery. Just a novel about a Christian teen trying to make it in a world of fashion that she’s in by default. She’s not into fashion just trying to be a supportive and helpful sister. It’s kind of similar to chick lit but not as silly and with more substance.

She’s won a number of awards (including the Rita and Gold Medallion) and some of her books have been optioned for film/TV.
