Not Available In-Store - Usually Ships from Warehouse in 1-5 Days


If they gave out diplomas for what you learn at the mall, Charlotte could graduate with honors.  Ever since she got a job as a perfume spritzer, she’s become an expert on all things shopping related—oh and she’s getting really good at spying on her classmates who hang out there.  What she hasn’t mastered is the art of convincing her best friend Brianna dump her boyfriend Bryant, after Charlotte catches him flirting with a mysterious, blond-haired stick figure. Now Brianna is taking his side! Charlotte must prove who is right, once and for all, and that means catching Bryant in the act.  This is where her mall roaming skills will come in handy.  Perfume anyone?

About the Author

Janette Rallison was never a perfume sprayer, but she still spent way more time and money at the mall than her parents thought prudent. She learned many important things during her years as a mall connoisseur. For example, even if a guy looks remarkably like a guy from your school, you should really check and make certain before you rush up and throw your arms around him. Also, even if your parents insist they want to see you in that swimsuit before they buy it for you, do not under any circumstance step out of the dressing room. The boy you want to impress will be passing by, as will your high school football team, your English teacher, a tour of seniors snapping photos at that exact moment and capturing your day-glow-white thighs for all their relatives to see in future slideshows. Not that any of these things every personally happened to Janette, but you can check out other embarrassing experiences on her Web site:
Janette has written five books for Walker & Company, including "Fame, Glory, and Other Things on My To Do List." Janette lives in Chandler, Arizona, with her husband and four out of five of their children. (The fifth is at college, not wandering around lost under a clothes rack.)
