Product Description

Review

Fresh, contemporary and unputdownable. --The Bookseller

It's brilliant and important ... Even if you're not interested in fashion (and I'm not), you'll enjoy this book. And if you're a big fan of cheap fashion, you should definitely read it - it may give you something to think about. --Chicklish

Format: Paperback
Beads, Boys and Bangles is the follow-up novel to Threads, and it is just as awesome as the first! Crow has been offered the chance for another collection for Miss Teen, Nonie has possibly caught the attention of a cute Rob Pattinson look-a-like, Jenny is busy rehearsing for a new play, but disaster strikes when Edie is virtually attacked by a group of people, saying that Crow's original Miss Teen collection was made by slave children in India!

I think this book is a great follow-up to the last. The characters were developed even further and you began to learn more about their personalities than in the first one. Nonie was a great narrator, again, but I felt that her outfits she wore weren't so obvious as the last book, only a few times she described what she was wearing.

The plot was really interesting and there were several twists I wasn't expecting in the book. This made it more realistic, I thought.

This book didn't focus as much on their home lives/school as it did on Crow's designer life and the effects of her becoming a designer. However, I still think it was a great read.

Rating = 5 Stars

This book continues the lovely fairytale of the last, and I really wish that this could happen to me! I really can't wait for the third book to come out!

Beads, Boys and Bangles is a magical tale of four best friends and their adventures in the fashion world. Sounds pink and fluffy, well it's not. The girls travel to Mumbai and find their collection is being produced in child labour camps, so they vow to return to London and take on the fashion mavens. Ideal for socially aware teens. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
The second book in the threads series, this follows the dreams of Nonie, Edie, jenny and Crow as they live their fashion dream. Though this is a great book, it is useful to read book one first to get to know the characters and their circumstances. Even so it is fairly easy to pick up.
Don't worry if you are not interested in fashion, the storyline differentiates often to follow the lives and relationships of the girls, but a little basic knowledge does help the flow of the book (i.e knowing who Dior is etc.)
