It is her dream job as she gets to spend her days alone, sorting old, vintage clothes. But when two crazy fellow girl employees befriend her, her time alone is put to a halt. The girls urge Veronica to spy on the awkward and mysterious stock boy, and in hopes of gaining some friends, Veronica agrees.

I really liked the premise of this book but was disappointed with the final result. Some emotional elements didn't quite connect, and the ending was a little too unfinished. There was too much unnecessary language which deterred from the interesting plot. MS- OPTIONAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
