Kiki wants to be a fashion designer. She has a couple of friends when a new girl moves in on their street. The new girl doesn't fit in well with Kiki and her friends.
I have to admit that at first I was really disappointed with the story. While the diary format and illustration loaded pages give life and personality to the book, I felt like it wasn't very original. Isn't there something else that little girls dream about becoming other than a fashion designer? There are so many interesting professions out there, why do all these protagonists want to be in fashion?
I also thought that much of the content was meant for older kids, even though it came packaged for younger readers.
That being said, I did like the way the story ended. I liked that Kiki and Mika worked out their differences and cleared up their misunderstandings in a a nice way. I think young girls would find the book entertaining.

Their minds go wild sometimes, but their crazy thoughts inspired them and me!! Even though they do not get all they want, they still dream on and so will I. They are just little girls but they have BIG hearts. They are the best of friends!! I loved the book! It was awesome!!!!!

On behalf of my 5-year-old, these books are great!! She is an independent reader just getting into chapter books, but still just 5 years old so having lots of pictures and high interest is very important.Was this review helpful?

Lotus Lane #1: Kiki: My Stylish Life by Kyla May
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Lotus Lane Book 1 - Kiki is about a young girl named Kiki and her BFFL's (BFFL=Best Friends For Life) Coco and Lulu. They all live on Lotus Lane and are members of the LLGC (LLGC=Lotus Lane Girl Club). In this book we are reading Kiki's diary which is a very cute, sassy diary, full of pretty little pictures and doodles. The tale is of three best friends, a new girl, a misinterpretation of events and the eventual understanding and friendship that results. My four year old lost interest somewhere in the middle of the story (14 small chapters), but we did read it in one sitting and she came back to it towards the end. We had fun identifying the days of the week and some of the smaller sight words she knows. Overall a cute book for kids. Would be better read to your child a few chapters at a time.
