Gemma loves fashion - which is not surprising given she lives with her grandmother, the famous Cara Bonafete. The new spring collection is coming up, but when Cara breaks her wrist and a thief appears in their lives, Gemma and her best friend Hannah will have to solve this mystery and maybe rescue the design business as well!

This is a great story for any aspiring designers. Gemma is a wonderful character and so full of optimism and enthusiasm. With sewing projects scattered throughout the book, this will most appeal to creative upper primary girls.
