Kiki: My Stylish Life

Kiki: My Stylish Life
Lotus Lane #1
by Kyla May
New York, N.Y. : Scholastic, 2013.
88 pages. Intermediate chapter book.

Kiki begins writing in a diary. She tells it everything via pictures as well as words. She has two very best friends and together they have a club, The Lotus Lane Girls Club. They have a schedule of their daily and weekly events which they stick to faithfully. Kiki loves fashion almost more than anything so she is super excited when her art teacher assigns them a project they are "passionate" about. She knows immediately that she will do fashion design. A new neighbor on Lotus Lane might be a bit of a stumbling block in Kiki's path. Mika appears to be copying everything Kiki does and it's annoying. Will the teacher's idea of making them work together solve the problem? Will Mika become a member of the elite Lotus Lane Girls Club?
Lotus Lane is one of the fabulous new beginning chapter book series from the Scholastic Branches imprint. It is sure to appeal to girls 1st-4th grade and reluctant readers even above that.
