Available: paperback, Kindle

    Axelle Anderson is a sixteen-year-old undercover model. She's just flown in from England to New York Fashion Week. Not just to model, but to discover the person responsible for the theft of a valuable black diamond necklace. If it's not found, her client's business and
reputation will be ruined. It sounds like an easy assignment. It's not. Axelle is forced to juggle her sleuthing between her over ambitious agent's bookings. To complicate things, the guy she used to like, and still does, but doesn't want to admit it, is on the scene, too. She only has one week to pull it off, but time is racing at runway speed.
     Girls will love the getting a birds-eye view of the fashion industry while reading a goo mystery. Axelle is an engaging heroine who, despite her model looks, is more interested in solving crime than being a fashion model.

Target audience: Grades 7-9
Mystery/ suspense:  good

Kid appeal: girls will love it
