Great entertainment for my Christian granddaughter
October 28, 2011
It is so hard to find good, moral, scripturally sound entertainment for young people but Christianbook.com manages to provide a very good variety. I'm grateful for this site and the Christian fiction it offers.
Review: Catwalk - On the Runway Book #2 - Melody Carlson
Paige and Erin Forrester are back and this time it's bye bye Malibu Beach and Hello Fashion Week as the girls are on their way to interview some of the top designers and models and if they weren't lucky enough - Paige and Erin get to be in the show as models for Green Environment Designer Granada. Just as you thought that you may never see the Carter House Girls again , in New York we see Paige and Erin meet up with Katherine Carter , DJ, Eliza , Rhiannon and Taylor as of course they are modelling for their designer friend Dylan Marceau. Alot can happen during Fashion Week and on the Catwalk as we see the tensions flare between Paige and Erin with Paige having the fame go to her head and Erin wanting to promote some eco-friendly designers on the show. Catwalk has it all from Airport Jinks, Friends -new and old , fallouts , boyfriend troubles , teen pregnancy and of course a car crash which results in a death of one of the characters from the first book "Premiere" and most importantly Catwalk features a strong relationship with God as the Carter House Girls mix with the Forresters.
I'm now looking forward to reading Book #3 Rendevous which I have on order from the library
I actually enjoyed this book even more than the first one. I didn't think I would after reading the teaser at the end of the first book, but it ended up being an entertaining read after all. I liked how the author tied in an entirely separate series into this one, too. The Carter House girls make an appearance in this book, which makes me want to go back and finish that series. Anyway, I am looking forward to digging into book three in this series, Rendezvous. So far this series is a YA winner, in my opinion, and I'm not even into fashion. I suppose I identify more with Erin, the sister. That's what is so good about this book. It's easy to identify with at least one character. They are all very different, and they seemed like they could be real people, which is why I am enjoying getting to know them. The characters are easy to relate to.
Catwalk by Melody Carlson is the second book in the On the Runway series. Paige and Erin Forrester are on their way to film New York Fashion week for their reality television show On the Runway, but first they both need to walk in a show for a "green" designer, then Erin needs to deal with her best friend Mollie's seeming abandoning her for boyfriend Tony, plus the girls' mother's relationship with Jon is becoming serious. I love this series about two sisters trying to stay true to themselves in the strange world of Hollywood. Paige is the star of the show and trying to keep up her relationship with big star Benjamin. Erin is more comfortable behind the camera and is giving old flame Blake another chance. Paige and Erin have a very believable sisterly relationship with plenty of push-pull and chemistry. They face the real problems of teenagers: parents dating, troubled relationships, and two-faced friends, but with a great twist of glamor. It's the rare young adult Christian series that is completely enjoyable and believable. I can't wait to read what happens next to the Forrester sisters.
