Prunella was daydreaming her way through Maths class before the lunch break when a ripple of excited whispering went through the classroom. ‘Sista Magazine is holding open heats for the Face of tomorrow Teen Model Quest! This week at the shopping centre, pass it on!’
Prunella rolled her eyes. From the sound of things, just about everyone was planning to strut their stuff or go cheer on their friends.
Last year she had a great group of friends, but when Prunella starts high school, everything is different. She doesn’t know anyone, and she is being teased about her height, her wonky nose, her crazy hair and her dress sense.
But when a modelling competition is held at the local shopping centre, and Prunella’s friends convince her to enter, it seems that Prunella might have the last laugh at Chanel, the ringleader of the bullies.
Cover Girl is the second title in the Totally Stylin’ series of short novels for tween girl readers. With the same main characters as in the first title, Style Files as well as new characters, the story is self contained, though readers will find they enjoy the series best read in order.
