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. Will their new “eco-chic” trend subversively resist and overturn the industry that controls every part of their lives?
Smart, provocative, and entertaining, this thrilling page-turner for teens questions the cult like mentality of fame and fashion. Are you in or are you out?
Full review to come in April!
If you love a good dystopian, then you're going to fall in love with Material Girls! From the very first page, I was rooting for Marla Klein. Each character has a strong and unique voice that I appreciated. The world that the author creates is as much a cautionary tale about the woes of consumerism as it is entertaining. Fans of the dystopian genre will be thrilled with this newest addition!
