About The Book
When Zoey Webber is invited to be a star contestant on Fashion Showdown Junior, it makes news headlines: She’s going to travel the world competing with other young designers…and might even have her own runway show! But there’s even bigger news at home: Zoey’s aunt Lulu is about to have a baby, and Zoey’s dad has finally announced the identity of the mystery woman he’s been dating. Zoey isn’t sure she’s ready for anyone to fill her mom’s shoes, even if she is the perfect fit! But in fashion and in life, unexpected twists can turn into something wonderful. When the fabric of her family changes forever, can Zoey make it work?

Raves and Reviews
"An aspiring fashion designer is the affable heroine of this first book in the Sew Zoey series. . . . In a smoothly written story of overcoming challenges with ingenuity and style, Taylor shows a knack for characterization and dialogue, and her detailed descriptions of Zoey’s designs will entice young fashionistas."
– Publishers Weekly
"Most novels about fashion end up being more about little divas than about the clothing; this is an exception. This story celebrates the rewards of personal creativity and risks of self-expression. . . . This book will appeal to a middle-grade crowd that isn’t into vampires and dystopias, as well as to those who create art with their hands."
– Kirkus Reviews
"Zoey Webber is a funky fashionista stuck in a gray-polyester-uniform world. The first book in a delightful new series, this will appeal to any girl finding her own style. Zoey is a bubbly and vivacious character who doesn’t let insecurities take command."
"The characters are enjoyable and well developed, and the plot is humorous and entertaining. The black-and-white drawings that open each chapter add a bit of fashion flair. With a touching ending that will leave readers with a warm, fuzzy feeling, this novel will appeal to young fashionistas."
– School Library Journal
Zoey is back and still sewing and blogging in the second book in this upbeat series. . . . When she comes to the conclusion that she has to patch her friendships in the same way she patches her torn jeans, determined and creative Zoey reweaves both friendships and makes them stronger.
