Style Files, by Amanda Nicholls

When the school bell finally rang, Melody sprinted to the bus stop to tell the twins the news.
‘I got an email from the editor of Total Girl! She told me how to create a magazine!’ melody squealed.
‘OMG! that is totally awesome! What did she say?’ Abby gushed.

Melody Michaels loves magazines and fashion equally. So when she has to create a magazine as part of a school assignment, of course it has to be a fashion magazine. Soon her fashion zine, the Style File, is the talk of the school. Then, when her favourite magazine, Total Girl runs a contest to find a fashion communist, Melody wonders whether she would have a chance of being considered.

Style Files is the first title in the new Totally Stylin series from Total Girl magazine and Allen & Unwin. With easy to read text, a simple plot and lots of friends and fashion, as well as a free gift of a pink sparkly coin purse, this will appeal to girls aged 8 to 10, who will look forward to collecting the series.
