In the Big Apple at last!
Big artistic vision, short time to work.
Pricey place, small paycheck, next steps?
The story begun in Piper Perish opens a new chapter for the teen artist as she arrives in New York City, far from family demands in Houston (= why I prefer this book to #1).
No need to read the first book to get caught up in Piper’s explorations of NYC’s art scene and her own artistic ideas.
Away from home and family – what’s your first move?
My book talk:
In New York City at last, Piper works for a famous artist with a “new vision” but the Houston native also wants time for her own creative desires as she learns to navigate the city in a whirlwind season before starting art school.
Hired by Carlyle Campbell based on photos of her big senior project in Texas, now Piper must replicate that piece and several others for Fashion Week – fast!
Can she keep her own artistic focus while working to reflect what Carlyle wants the world to see?
The intense connection she felt online with her student mentor Silas seems erratic when they’re together in person – hmmm.
Her small salary from Carlyle doesn’t go far in the city – time to find another job, and find a place to paint, and go out with Silas and new friend Grace, and apply for financial aid so she can start next semester…
It’s Piper Perish in the big city as she leaps into the next chapter of her life – as long as she can find a way to stay here!
