Friendship emergencies. Now, since Kate , Zoey's best friend, gets her braces off, she turns to be pretty. And Libby become cautious towards Zoey because she has a famous aunt, who is a designer.

I like that this book is about sewing, sewing, sewing.. but at the same time it tackles the friendship issue as well.

Zoey enters a designer competition, and I love that her designs are inspiring for tweens (even in real life)!

Anyway, because it is a Sew Zoey book, all things turn well in the end.

Oh.. and

This is a really nice and cute story for middle grade readers. I am a lot older than the target ready group but I believe that if this series had been around when I was a child then I would have read them all. It's a safe series for children. This is the second book in the series and is better than the first. A nice book about a girl who loves sewing and fashion designing but isn't over the top.

I think Zoey is really nice and considerate to her family and friends. Zoey must really like sewing accesoires for everyone. She really is kind to do stuff for everyone. Especially for her friends and family. Zoey rocks!!!!!

Very cute.

Zoey is an ambitious 5th grader who enters a nation-wide design/sewing contest.

She has a fashion blog and parts of the book are parts of her blog.

Friendship problems abound, but Zoey handles everything with energy, resourcefulness, and grace.

Fashion and friendships both are causing problems for Zoey in the second book. Zoey entered a really big fashion competition but her main stress was trying to figure out what was going on with her best friend Kate.

This was a really cute and fun book that has interesting characters.
