REVIEW for Tales from my Closet


Another thank you goes out to Nikole at Scholastic Canada for sending me a copy of this book.

TITLE:              Tales from my Closet

AUTHOR:         Jennifer Anne Moses

GENRE:            YA

RATING:          

I gave this book three stars because I could not get a clear handle on what the author was trying to do with this book.

It is certainly not a horrible read, in fact, it wasn't bad, but unlike other books who incorporate "fun" with "drama" I found that this did not work all that well here.  Yes, I get that fashion is the escape point for these girls, but it does not come across as flawless, but rather - bad, bad and then escape into fashion.  Additionally, I think the author worked in too many characters here which make keeping it all organized a bit challenging.

When the author tackles the fashion aspect, this book is entertaining and fun to read, I wish she would have simply stuck to that - there would have been nothing wrong with simply focusing on the characters love of fashion without all the drama.
