Emma Rose is SO not a diva. She doesn't want her turn on the catwalk-she'd rather be behind the scenes creating fabulous outfits! So when a famous fashionista discovers Emma's designs and offers her the opportunity of a lifetime-a feature in Madison magazine (squeal!)-Emma sort of, well, panics. She has only one option: to create a secret identity. And so Allegra Biscotti is born. Allegra is worldly, sophisticated, and bold-everything Emma is not. But the pressure is on. And Emma quickly discovers juggling school, a new crush, friends, and a secret identity might not be as glamorous as she thought.

The Allegra Biscotti was a great book. The descriptions of the outfits were quite nice. Also seeing the main character, Emma, be able to keep the secret was quite amazing. Overall, this was quite a nice book.

i read this book 3 times and it is still awesome i love the little designs sketches and the fact that it really seems like its a fashion novel because sometimes a caracter in some because say they do this or that without really offering explenations.

This book turned out to be a great read! Emma is a budding fashion designer and loves sewing and making clothes. When she gets accidentally discovered by a fashion magazine's editor it's a dream come true and an opportunity she can't pass up. So she creates Allegra Biscotti, up and coming new designer. Lots of hilarity ensues as Emma tries to juggle making a three-look collection and studying/going to school. The setting of New York City helps makes this story entirely believable. The book includes great messages about friendship, consequences for our actions, and following your dreams. There was humor, angst, and lots of fashion! Any tween/teen girl would love it, even if they don't know much about fashion and clothes, the rest of the story and characters make it a well-rounded story. Can't wait for the second book!
