Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Frankie Brooks knows what she wants in life: to become the world’s next great fashion editor. All she needs to do is get into the elite American Fashion Academy in New York City. If she gets in, her life plans will be going right on schedule. Anna Wintour, watch out.
But after Frankie messes up one too many times—hey, it’s hard keeping up with classwork and an acclaimed fashion blog—her parents come up with entirely different plans for her future: Military school. How is Frankie, the least athletic person in the world, who knows absolutely nothing about the military, going to survive a whole semester at the famed—and feared—Academy?
With students who seem to be totally uninterested in her, a course-load that’s even more difficult than at her old school, and the weird athletic War Games competition Frankie has to join—her life is way harder than it used to be. And no one, including her roommate Joni, seems to understand Frankie at all.
As she learns how to cope in about a million drills, a hundred different specialized classes, and is maybe even falling for super-hot and super-smart cadet Jack Wattson, can Frankie prove to everyone that being a fashionista doesn’t mean she can’t succeed?
Why I’m Excited
The synopsis reminds me of one of my favorite DCOMs growing up, “Cadet Kelly” and I’m super excited to see the story in book-form!
There also sounds like there will be a lot of laughs and fun drama, making this perfect for Spring/Summer, so I can’t wait!
Are you excited for THE ACADEMY? Do you love CADET KELLY too? What’s your favorite DCOM, and if you could turn any DCOM into a book which one would you choose?
