This interest has continued growing, including a renewed interest in magazines, clothes and looking good.It was this, and the fact that the setting is in New York City, that had


me wanting to read this book. I actually thought that it might not be as interesting as the premise suggested, that it might be a little young for me - but I was wrong.The Interns: Fashionistas is similar to Gossip Girl, The Clique and The A List, only it revolves around four main characters who meet because of their internships at Couture magazine. The fashion aspect of the book is very well-written, although not delved into as much as I would have liked. It was interesting watching the girls face the challenges and rewards of the internship, as it would vary from day to day.What was really great though was the portrayal of each of the four characters. Although I enjoyed Nadine's brash and outgoing personality and Ava's quiet talent and allure of mystery, my favorites were Callie and Aynsley.I think I can relate to Callie's bewilderment as a girl from a small town plopped into the big City - an intimidation and a need to look equal to her fellow interns plays a role in many of the decisions she makes. But I also can appreciate her values (which come into play a bit) and her determination to pursue fashion as a career despite it's impracticality.Aynsley, or Sly, on the other hand, is pretty much the embodiment of the girl I'd want to be - cool, sophisticated, sleek and still smart. She's just an interesting character to read about, plus, I think she would be the one with the fashion style I'd relate to the best.The book follows the girls' ups and downs in the first few weeks of their internships - there are fights, secrets, lies, relationships, crushes, assignment mishaps and so much more. I found myself utterly absorbed in their world, immediately jumping into the intrigue with enthusiasm. In fact, I was sad when the book came to an end, leaving the reader with tons of questions (to be answered in the next book of the series, I'm sure!).The Interns: Fashionistas is a fun, intriguing read and if you liked Gossip Girl, The A List or The Clique, you'll probably enjoy this book as well.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Courtesy of Teens Read TooBy TeensReadTooFASHIONISTAS is the first book in a new series by Chloe Walsh.Four very different girls come together at Couture magazine in New York City for a summer internship.Aynsley is the spoiled rich girl, whose mom is friends with the Editor-in-Chief. Aynsley has to work at Couture or spend the summer in a remote Italian village. That thought alone makes a summer of unpaid work worth it.Ava is a shy, invisible writer. Though she's hiding a secret none of the girls would ever expect. The night of the Cutting Edge Gala brings a new beginning for Ava.Callie is a nave creative designer from Ohio. Or is she? She comes to Couture with the hopes of getting recognition for her work.And Nadine doesn't seem to fit in anywhere. She forms an immediate bond with Aynsley, but her partying attitude distances her from everyone at Couture.THE INTERNS is not a new concept. The story has been told before, most recently in SUMMER INTERN by Carrie Karasyov and Jill Kargman. However, Ms. Walsh creates more depth and interpersonal conflict between her characters. All of the characters have secrets and desires that are not revealed to each other. The reader is left with wanting more after the final pages of the first book in the series.For anyone intrigued with the inner workings of the fashion industry, FASHIONISTAS gives a raw inside look at the frantic pace of this world.. Designer names are used liberally and leaves the reader wishing they had a fashion closet the likes of Couture.Stay tuned for THE INTERNS: TRUTH OR FASHION...Reviewed by: Jaglvr0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. And Another Book Read ReviewsBy And Another Book ReadFour very different girls, Callie, Ava, Nadine, and Aynsley, have all landed a dream summer internship at Couture Magazine. All four are drastically different, but that is what makes the story click. Aynsley is the rich socialite who only got into the program because her mother is best friends with the editor. Nadine is a no mess Philly girl full of attitude and always up for a good party. Ava is the sweet quiet girl who's never had a boyfriend, and Callie is a designer in the making from Ohio, who is not too familiar with the city. The girls are thrown many a task, but nothing is too big for them. All summer long they compete with each other for the best assignment, summer love, and the glory.For any fan of the Gossip Girl books this is a must read. Only one of the girls, Aynsley, is uber rich like the Gossip Girls, but the book has the same type of story line. The book was really cute and was a great read. If anyone has read A Girl Like Moi by Lisa Barham the interns are a lot like Imogene. The story ended with many questions left unanswered, the perfect set-up for the sequel which comes out mid-summer. Fashionit's an obsession for millions. But for four lucky, talented girls, fashion is a full-time, style-transforming . . . internship in New York City! Some might call it work, but as interns at high-end Couture magazine, Callie, Nadine, Ava, and Aynsley are workin' it in style. Callie Ryan:Innocent aspiring designer or claws-out fashion phony?Nadine Van Buren:Brings the party. Loves to party (even if it's a pity party). Ava Barton:Happy to be here . . . and about to take over!Aynsley Rothwell:Sexy socialite with a killer wardrobeand the attitude to match. Hanging with the Couture interns is what's in this season. But who's the glamorous sage behind the Fashionista blog serving up style wisdom and sartorial send-ups? It's enough to spark a hot-and-heavy fashion frenzy. Hold on to your Manolos . . . read on and find out. From BooklistFeaturing ahard-partyingManhattanmilieu and descriptions full of designer names, Walshs entry in TheInterns seriesearns its stripes as chick lit.However, its four protagonists arent just wearing the trends. As interns ata Vogue-like magazine, theyre creating them. Their assignments tend to be unrealistically exciting, but Walsh writes convincingly about the industrys Devil Wears Prada intensity, whiledelivering distinct, entertainingconflicts for her characters. Teen fashionistas,and readers who enjoy vicariously experiencing an exclusive summer job will want
