The more attention Edie’s ensembles earn, the more driven she becomes to outdo herself...Spires’ digitally rendered illustrations place Edie and her friends on expanses of white space, drawing the focus to her fashion excesses while maintaining readers’ sympathy with Edie herself. A heartwarming tale of self-discovery and friendship.

Synopsis

Edie is known for her great outfits and stylish flair. She and her best friend Andrew spend a lot of time playing dress-up. The school hall is their runway. Edie loves the compliments and whispers of admiration, so much so that she begins dressing in increasingly outrageous outfits to get even more attention. No outfit is too bizarre, no costume too flamboyant for Edie. She's so busy coming up with her newest eye-catching ensemble that she doesn't even have time for Andrew anymore ... until one day Edie creates an outfit so weird and so big and bulky that she gets stuck in the doorway. Will anyone notice that this budding fashionista is in trouble?
