Ever had a best friend who you spent every waking moment with - and then one day, you just stopped being friends? Well, Chloe has three BFFs-turned-enemies... what's a girl to do? Get Kidzworld's review of Breaking Up: A Fashion High Graphic Novel!

Friends Til the End

Chloe Sacks attends a really cool school for the arts that's nicknamed "Fashion High." The classes are great - how fun would it be to take Cowboy Boot Design 101? - but you can get eaten alive by snotty students who've declared themselves to be the ultimate authorities on fabulousness! But Chloe could care less about popularity cuz she's got three amazing friends - MacKenzie, Isabel and Erika. Chlo and Mac have been BFFs since they were seven, and Isabel and Erika joined their exclusive club in junior high and they've all been best friends ever since! But not for long...

Who Said Friends Are Forever?

Chloe may be on the bottom of the popular scale, but having a drop dead gorgeous pal like Mac means she isn't exactly living in nerdville. But when Chloe starts crushin' on a sweet but seriously uncool guy, the drama begins and her friendships get put to the test. With Mac desperately trying to climb to the top to gain Queen Bee status, she'll do anything it takes, even if it means ditching Chloe. What starts out as an argument between Chloe and MacKenzie quickly escalates into an all-out war between the four friends, and by the end of the year, none of them are speaking to each other! Will they work it out, or is this it for the fab foursome?


The Bottom Line

You don't have to be artsy to enjoy Breaking Up: A Fashion High Graphic Novel, cuz everyone will be able to relate to it. And the awesome black-and-white graphics by Christine Norrie will double your reading fun! This book is a great V-Day read, but don't let the title trick you into thinking it's a sob-fest. It has its fair share of ups and downs in the friendship and relationship department, but it's also got plenty of heart-warming moments for all you romantics! So if you're not going to be out and about on Valentine's Day, make plans with the couch to read it from front to back. Who says you have to have a hot date on February 14th anyway?

    You beat Super Metroid. Brother tried that. Got a few months until he lost everything. Yep. Hasn't tried again since.  I would be the same way. Problem is the main game I am nerd about is a racing sim. :p Really hard to beat that game in a day. Or do much in a day. I would however do that for other games if I had the information on them. And the means to actually get to the system at the correct time considering the systems are in my brothers room.
