about

The lightbulb of good ideas is burning bright for eleven-year-old Abby Shapiro. As the personal fashion designer for Jacqueline Kennedy, she plans to become famous and earn enough money to buy both a Barbie doll and a bra. Abby decides to get in touch immediately. In her letters to Jackie, she shares her wry, insightful observations--along with her drawings and fashion tips. The letters help Abby through a tumultuous year in which her father abandons the family, her gangster uncle falls in love, her beloved aunt suffers a stroke, and her relationship with her mother goes from bad to worse.Deeply affecting and funny, this coming-of-age novel captures the temper of the times and introduces readers to an unforgettable young heroine.
