Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6–9—Lynn is a fashion diva, so much of one, in fact, that she is ahead of the curve. She scouts trends seasons in advance and customizes her own clothes. On a daily basis she expresses herself through her wardrobe. Most people just don't get her style. Her pink tutu and navy plaid shirt outfit grant her nothing but stares. But Lynn doesn't mind. She's used to the jibes, the names, and being highly visible. But things change drastically when she goes to try out for the GlITer Girl IT panel. She trips, and one of her fashion-forward ideas lands on the lunch of her fashion-designer icon. Suddenly she is an "IT Girl." People ask her advice and try to copy her unique style. Companies want to buy her ideas. Popular kids want to be her BFF. For Lynn, the real issue becomes staying true to herself and not getting lost amid the masses. Lynn Visible is a sweet story with one core theme. While few readers will identify with Lynn's particularly zany sense of fashion, they will love her spirit and vivaciousness.—Melyssa Malinowski, Kenwood High School, Baltimore, MD

From Booklist

For ninth-grader Lynn Vincent, creating her own festive, funky ensembles has always been a source of fun and self-expression, even though she is often ridiculed, especially by a trendy mean girl, Chasey. When one of her shoe creations unexpectedly catches famous designer Valentyna’s eye, Lynn is chosen as the first “It Girl” for a new online teen-trend magazine. Soon everyone wants to be her friend, and Lynn even gets a marketing offer for national distribution. Issues arise when her creations become mainstream, though, and with the support of best friend Taylor,Valentyna, and cute boy Jacob, Lynn must determine what’s right—for her. Rife with pop-culture references and fashion-industry satire, and featuring a light romance, this entertaining read will pull in style-oriented readers, who will enjoy Lynn’s intricately described outfits and appreciate her dilemmas, including finding the confidence to stay true to herself. Grades 7-10. --Shelle Rosenfeld

I'm not in the tween/teen demographic for this book, but I love Julia DeVillers work, and buy all her books for my girls. Having said that, I was totally enthralled with this book! Lynn Vincent is a brilliant character who is funny, smart, quirky, and so much more! Before I'd gotten more than 50 pages in, she had me laughing so hard I was crying. The descriptions of Lynn's outfits were perfect (this would make for such a great movie so we could see all her ideas come to life), and you found yourself rooting for her and all her friends throughout the book. And there is a powerful message in this book about remaining true to yourself which we can all use at any age. Go out and buy this book, it's a winner!!

My 6yo daughter found this book in the library and wanted it based on the cover. We read most of it together, a couple of chapters per night, before she ran out on it -- but I finished it myself because by that time, I had to know what happened. :)

There are so many things to like about this book. The characters are fun and relatable and the situation is familiar to pretty much anyone who's ever gone into a new situation with new people, or to anyone who's had an interest outside the mainstream of their peer group.

Lynn is into fashion, but for herself, her fashion is unique, and she's caught the consequences of it. What I love is that it doesn't change her. She keeps doing it, knowing she'll catch heat from classmates, but she wants to be true to herself, which is a message we could use sometimes. Lynn even advises her friends at times to cut or at least loosen their ties to her but to their credit, they don't. Lynn remains true to herself and her vision, to the point of turning down a potentially lucrative contract with a fashion company, and realistic or not, it's good to read about a young girl who keeps herself grounded.

I don't know if my daughter will get all of those things out of it, but she did get turned on to fashion. Some of her selections would rival Lynn's choices, but I love it and keep encouraging her.

Lynn Visible is about a young girl entering high school and the challenges she faces. Lynn Vincent realizes she's not like other kids in her approach to fashion and is often the butt of jokes. Her best friend Taylor sticks by her and relies on her for fashion advice. When there's an open call for girls to participate on a panel that provides fashion and style advice in their small Pennsylvania town, Lynn is motivated to create a special outfit complete with shoes she designed herself. Unfortunately, the line is long at the mall, and when Lynn leaves briefly to use the restroom, she loses her chance to interview for the style panel. Ducking into a deli at the mall afterwards, Lynn spies fashion designer Valentina eating lunch. Things couldn't seem to get worse after Lynn wants to walk past Valentina to get a better look at her, and her shoe flies off and into Valentina's meal! What happens next is a search for the creator of the shoe in a modern twist on the Cinderalla story. Thanks to Lynn's faithful friend Taylor, who took a video of Lynn and her shoes, Taylor arranges for a videoconference between Valentina and Lynn. Lynn is named the Glitter Girl magazine's IT girl (an even better honor than being named to the style panel). Suddenly, everyone, including the snobby popular girls who had made fun of Lynn, want to be her friend! The book includes a trip to NY for Lynn to meet with Valentina and concludes with a fashion show at the high school for charity. When Lynn's models bail out on her, Taylor and other friends come to the rescue (including a surprise visit from Valentina who helps Lynn fit the models and opens the show for Lynn).Read more ›
