The coolest teen fashion magazine is looking for fashion-savvy girls to be on their advisory panel. It's perfect for Lynn Vincent, who eats, breathes, and sleeps fashion. However Lynn is so fashion forward that she's years ahead of the trends in her small town. Lynn is so in, she's out, especially with Chasey Welch and her popular circle. But Lynn may finally get her moment in the spotlight-and on the runway- when a famous designer gets her hands on one of Lynn's unique creations.
High school freshman Lynn Vincent's bold fashion sense always makes a big impression. While Lynn knows "it would have been much easier for me to put on the typical high-schooler outfit," she can't help but be herself, creating combinations so outrageous that her best friend Taylor's mother wishes Taylor would find more traditional friends (on the first day of school Lynn wears a plaid shirt, pink tutu skirt, kneesocks, and fedora). Then popular magazine GlITter Girl sponsors a contest to find teens on the cutting edge of fashion. The day of the audition, Lynn trips and sends a homemade shoe flying onto the salad plate of one of the judges, a famous designer. Like Prince Charming pursuing Cinderella with a glass slipper, the magazine finds Lynn with the aid of her shoe and asks her to be its very first IT Girl, launching her into the limelight. DeVillers (Liberty Porter, First Daughter) keeps Lynn true to herself: her funky, conversational tone never wavers, even when the powers-that-be want to change her designs. The story celebrates individualism and friendship and should generate smiles. Ages 10-up. (Mar.)

This book is really cool. I will read again for sure. I think that this book should be for maybe 10 at the youngest. Lynn has interesting style and I think that it is cool that she is not afraid to be bold with what she wears. I like this book SO much that I have practically memorized it! If you are like me you will enjoy this book because it has so many pages it will take a little longer to read. It is definitely not one of those thin boring books that you only read once!
"Lynn Visible" was great. Two thumbs up! This novel has the right stuff to encourage the youth to be themselves and be unique, not compromise on your individual style to "suit" others; yes, the pun is intended here. This is a wonderful novel to inspire all readers to follow their career goals and aspirations, and not to settle for less. "Lynn Visible" has a well-developed storyline and characters that will engage readers and keep their attention; it is built on true-to-life personalities that many readers will be able to relate to. Being who you are and loving what you like is all part of the message in "Lynn Visible." *Worthwhile reading. *Good for inspirational reading.
I'm not in the tween/teen demographic for this book, but I love Julia DeVillers work, and buy all her books for my girls. Having said that, I was totally enthralled with this book! Lynn Vincent is a brilliant character who is funny, smart, quirky, and so much more! Before I'd gotten more than 50 pages in, she had me laughing so hard I was crying. The descriptions of Lynn's outfits were perfect (this would make for such a great movie so we could see all her ideas come to life), and you found yourself rooting for her and all her friends throughout the book. And there is a powerful message in this book about remaining true to yourself which we can all use at any age. Go out and buy this book, it's a winner!!
My daughter and I both enjoy reading Ms. DeVillers books. They are all smart, funny, colorful, entertaining and there is always a life lesson in there too. Lynn Visible does not disappoint. We got it yesterday and my daughter won't put it down. She LOVES it! She said, "This is right up my reading alley." Thank goodness we had a snow day today so she could read as much as she wanted. My daughter made a list of her 10 favorite books for a friend and four out of the ten were written by Ms. DeVillers. I am sure this one will be added to the list. LOVE IT!!
