The Intern

Gabrielle Tozer. HarperCollins, $8.99 trade paper (330p) ISBN 978-0-7322-9705-3
Clumsy fashion-failure Josie Browning aspires to journalistic greatness, yet the 17-year-old unwittingly lands a coveted internship at Sash, a women’s fashion magazine. Scoring a juicy quote and a follow-up feature with a boy-band celeb help Josie earn the admiration of editor-in-chief, Rae Swanson. Josie hopes this will gain her an edge in winning a $5,000 bonus and her own column in the magazine, which are up for grabs among the interns. Meanwhile, Josie gets some lessons in style and catches the eye of her cousin Tim’s handsome roommate, James. Australian author/journalist Tozer takes readers on a tour of the highs (sample sales, celebrity photo shoots) and lows (impossible deadlines, washing piles of dirty bikinis) of life at a women’s fashion magazine. Though Tozer is careful not to allow Rae to overly resemble Miranda Priestly of The Devil Wears Prada, readers will find plenty of parallels to that novel. Tozer’s story follows Josie through familiar problems with family, friends, and boys as the pressure of Sash gets to her and she makes her way toward a less fashion-focused journalistic triumph. Ages 12–up. (Oct.)
