Sequins, Secrets and Silver Linings by Sophia Bennett

Three friends in London have high aspirations. Jenny wants to be a star and has recently finished her first film. Nonie, who tells this story, wants to do something in fashion. Edie wants to go to Harvard and save the world. The friends' lives are changed forever when they meet Crow, a 12 year old Ugandan refugee and a genius dress designer. Friendships are strained and grow deeper, fashion competes with the tragic story of Uganda's "Invisible Children," and Edie begins to make sense of her past and her future. A fun read with a serious side. This book was published in England under the title "Threads" which is a much better title! Sequel is coming.
