Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-6-When her middle school announces that it is getting rid of uniforms, future fashion designer Zoey can't wait to show off her own style. While shopping with her friends, she discovers that the clothes in the stores just don't have that Zoey factor. With a little inspiration from her aunt and her friends, she decides to try creating her own wardrobe and blogging about it on "Sew Zoey." When her principal finds out, she gives Zoey the chance of a lifetime to be the only student designer in the school's charity fashion show. Her dress, however, gets ruined just days before the event and she has a huge social studies paper due the same day with no chance of extensions. Can Zoey pull off the opportunity of a lifetime or will she have to pull out of the show? Although the book is moderately paced, the characters are enjoyable and well developed, and the plot is humorous and entertaining. The black-and-white drawings that open each chapter add a bit of fashion flair. With a touching ending that will leave readers with a warm, fuzzy feeling, this novel will appeal to young fashionistas.-Kira Moody, Whitmore Public Library, Salt Lake City, UTα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Zoey Webber is a funky fashionista stuck in a gray-polyester-uniform world. She spends her days drawing the clothes she would love to wear but doesn’t know how to make. She is thrilled when her friend Priti calls with the news that their school not only has a new principal, but that they now no longer have to wear uniforms. A shopping trip for back-to-school clothes leads to a realization: to get the look she desires, she will have to make the clothes herself. Once Zoey’s friends see her sketchbook, they convince her to start a fashion design blog and learn how to sew; before long, Sew Zoey, as the blog is called, has thousands of followers, which helps her gain confidence as both a designer and a seamstress. The first book in a delightful new series, this will appeal to any girl finding her own style. Zoey is a bubbly and vivacious character who doesn’t let insecurities take command. Ultimately, she learns that life and middle school are much like sewing: when something doesn’t fit correctly, rip it out and start again. Illustrations unseen. Grades 3-6. --Suanne Roush

On behalf of my daughter, whom I bought this for--she liked it a lot. She's not a big reader and complains when I give her book (the idea!!!!) but this one got no complaints and was read quickly. Only 4 stars because she didn't ask to ready any more in the series.

Format: Paperback
The SEW ZOEY series is really different. Unlike series for Tweens and Teens like DORK DIARIES and DIARY OF A WIMPY KID, these books are all about doing creative things. Almost, but not quite, how-to instructions.

The main character is Zoey, a girl with two close friends, a brother and father, and supportive aunt. (Her mother passed away when she was a baby.) And in this first book, they help her to start a Blog about one of her favorite things, Fashion!

Zoey draws and draws and her friends are impressed with her designs, but Zoey doesn't know anything about blogging or sewing... which is pretty much going to be the case with real girls in her age bracket. The great thing about the book is that the author, Chloe Taylor, describes some of the basics about how a girl would go about learning to sew. She defines common terms, for example, like what a 'notion' is; and she gives pointers like how one really shouldn't cut out patterns on a bed.

I think a girl who went with her mom to a fabric store, would know what to expect.

Overall, this is a squeaky clean book without a lot of plot surprises. There are the super supportive friends, and the trouble making rich girls. But the book is well written, and the story is really a great way to present information about blogging and sewing in a kid-friendly fashion.

UPDATE:
There is now reading info. No Lexile but AR 4.0 with 4 Points. (Thanks to Larry :)

The Book-
Twelve year old Zoey Webber is staying at her Aunt Lulu's house over the summer, and is spending her time filling up sketchbooks with fashion designs. One morning Zoey's best friend Priti texts her to say that their school is doing away with uniforms! Zoey is so excited and plans a back-to-school shopping trip with her friends Priti and Kate. Her friends find out about her fashion sketches and convince her to start her own blog called Sew Zoey. The blog is a hit and Zoey is inspired to learn to sew and actually make her designs.

When school begins, Zoey is front and center with her own creation, but fellow students aren't very nice. She braves their looks though and continues to shine with her own style. The principal notices Zoey and asks if she would be willing to design an outfit for a school auction. Zoey is over-the-moon, until someone sabotages her dress. Can she go on? Will her blog supporters rally behind her? You've got to read to find out.

My Thoughts-
I really enjoyed this middle grade journey. Zoey is a fun character who is brave enough to wear her own fashions and face whatever comes her way. She has her moments of despair, but because of the followers on her blog, she gains a new found courage.

The topic alone is worth the read. How many people today know how to sew? I think the numbers might be few. The fact the Zoey takes on this art and runs with it will show other children that they can develop talents of their own.

Another fun thing is that the book has several bonuses. Before each chapter are some of Zoey's designs so the reader gets a feeling for what they're reading. Plus, Zoey lists several of her blog posts that allow the reader to get inside her mind.
