PJ Gach, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, www.TheQueenofStyle.com

"If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be a contestant on a fashion reality TV show, then you must pick up Chloe By Design: Making The Cut. Brooke’s photography and illustrations make you feel like you’re seeing everything through Chloe’s eyes . . . they are so chic, so gorgeous, and so wearable, that you may be tempted to rip them out of the novel and frame them." - PJ Gach, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, www.TheQueenofStyle.com

Kirkus Reviews

"Gurevich aims at middle schoolers, focusing on descriptions of Chloe’s designs, how she imagines them and how she fares in each stage of the competition. The arc of the show provides natural highs and lows, and the challenges that the young designers face feel typical of reality television, adding to the story’s realism. Greatly aiding the book’s appeal are the abundant fashion illustrations contributed by Hagel, allowing readers to envision nearly all the designs. Thrills and excitement for fashion fans." - Kirkus Reviews

VOYA - Kim Carter

"A fascinating perspective on the fast-paced, high-pressure fashion design world, Making the Cut immerses the reader in the design experience, offering an insider’s look at this creative process. Alternately “Confident Chloe, Cowardly Chloe, Charismatic Chloe, Clumsy Chloe,” [p. 380] Chloe’s personal growth will engage readers immersed in their own identity development. High quality layout and premium paper showcase lavish sketchbook-style illustrations from an experienced fashion industry artist, offering an aesthetically enhanced reading experience that will appeal to a range of young readers with interests in creative endeavors." - VOYA

VOYA - Teania Moore-Case, Teen Reviewer

"This book is by far one of the best books this reviewer has read. Anyone who is interested in fashion and wants to pursue fame in the fashion industry but has lost hope will love this book. It reminds readers that no matter how shy you are, the effort you put into your passion always brings out the best in you, and in the process, young adults learn that they can become more than they ever dreamed—they can become themselves. Many young people will relate to this book." - VOYA

Perfect for readers obsessed with fashion, clothing design, and reality TV." - Booklist Online
