Skyler Hanson’s palms were sweating.

Mortified, she wiped them off her on green plaid miniskirt, hoping no one at Fashion Club had noticed. Today’s fashionista outfit – black newsboy cap, enormous goop earrings, above-the-knee white socks – was meant to attract attention. Right now, though, she wanted to hide.

She dreaded making speeches. Getting up in front of thirty girls was not her idea of fun. Sometimes she secretly wondered if she even fit in with the club. She took it more seriously than others, somehow. She brushed the thought away; of course she fit in – she was one of the leading members!

Luckily, no one was looking at Skylar. Everyone was too busy flaunting the charm bracelets and college-girl blazers they’d scored over Christmas break. It was the first meeting of the new year.

“Did everyone have a fab vacay?” Ashleigh Carr, the club president, didn’t wait for an answer. In her pin-striped vest, white blouse, and boyfriend trousers, Ashleigh looked like she should be in a Ralph Lauren ad, not a classroom at Longbrook Middle School. Her audience hung on every word.
