Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shelly Shaffer
In Lynn Messina's young adult writing debut, young Chrissy Gibbons is excited to begin the most exciting summer of her life as she immerses herself in the New York magazine scene. With college just around the corner, Chrissy has earned an internship at Savvy Magazine, one of the hottest fashion magazines in New York City. During the first week of the internship, the editor-in-chief announces a competition for Savvy's first teen columnist. Throughout the summer, Chrissy seems to struggle to focus on her goals. She is invited to parties by Jessica Cordero, a former super-model and current fashion editor for Savvy; she has a crush on a college age intern who works across the hall; and she struggles to balance work with her best friend and other social demands. All of these cause Chrissy to procrastinate working on her column submission of the teen columnist contest until it is almost too late. Even though the plot is somewhat predictable, the book is a quick read and one that young adult readers would enjoy. Reviewer: Shelly Shaffer

    Kritters Ramblings

    A YA read that after completing I sit on the fence of whether I really enjoyed it or may be a little disappointed. One thought, I was confused the entire time as to the age of the character and the mishaps that she found herself in. I think her character could have been a hint older and I would have found it more believeable. But on the other side, I loved the storyline - a girl trying to tackle growing up and finding herself in the midst of an adult world, while trying to make the most of the moment of her lifetime.

    I couldn't grasp the roles of her parents and their abilities to disregard her late night activities and behaviors that are well beyond her age group. Although, I fell in love with her best friend and the co workers that made up the majority of the story.

    So to make it short and sweet, this was a cute read that I would pass onto my younger crowd of readers. I would say to those of my age group - a great light read in the middle of those deep reads.

    What could be more exciting than a summer internship at the coolest magazine? Chrissy Gibbons has landed a prized position as a summer intern at Savvy magazine. However, the summer doesn't turn out to be the one she expected. <BR/><BR/>Chrissy expects to be writing exciting articles and wowing the editors at Savvy. In reality, she is stuffing envelopes and fielding the letters that Adele should be handling. Adele spends her day planning her wedding and dealing with one mishap after another. Chrissy handles the mundane jobs but wants more out of her experience. <BR/><BR/>The editor of the magazine announces a new column. One of the summer interns will be selected to write a monthly column, Savvy Girl. Chrissy wants the prized column more than anything. <BR/><BR/>As the summer unfolds, Chrissy's opportunity to write a stunning column gets sidetracked by far more glamorous opportunities. Jessica, the fashion editor, has taken a shine to Chrissy and keeps inviting her along to exciting parties and fashion events. Soon, Chrissy is forgetting plans she's made with her best friend, and coming home drunk. <BR/><BR/>When a mutual friend makes her realize that her best friend is pretty upset with her home life, Chrissy realizes that she's changed, and not for the better. The realization helps her write the Savvy Girl column she's been neglecting and helps her become the person she knows she should be. <BR/><BR/>Lynn Messina is best known for her Red Dress Ink adult romance novels; SAVVY GIRL is her first book for young adults. She's captured the uncertainty of a young adult beautifully. Chrissy is desperate to fit in at her high fashion intern job, but needs to realize that she's still a teenager and has a lot more to learn about life.
