Description

A wallflower in the spotlight can do one of two things: wilt, or blossom...

Violet Greenfield's life changes forever when a lady in giant Chanel shades tells her she could be IT, the next Kate Moss-but taller, and without the PR problems. That's how Violet winds up with a business card in the front pocket of her jeans on her first day as a senior in high school. Angela Blythe from Tryst Models in New York City wants to put Violet on a plane and whisk her into the world of high-heeled boots and oversized sunglasses. Tall, skinny Violet, who's been P-L-A-I-N practically forever.

And guess what? She's going.

Look out for Violet by Design, coming in March 2008 from Berkley Jam.



About the Author

Melissa Walker is a writer who has worked as "ELLEgirl's" features editor and "Seventeen Prom's" editor. All in the name of journalism, she once spent twenty-four hours surrounded by male models and even attended an elite finishing school for girls in New Zealand--among other hardships.

She recently fulfilled a lifelong dream when she appeared as a talking-head "expert" on VH1's "The Fabulous Life of: Celebrity Kids."

Melissa lives in Brooklyn, New York, and has a BA in English from Vassar College. She would tell you her SAT scores, too, but, you know, the math part was hard.
