Veronica's Closet, or The Lizard King

Two things I can't live without: pop culture references that make me realize my ancient-ness & AWESOME fashion. Exhibit A: this post about books with wicked amazing fashion sense. Better is wicked amazing fashion sense via thrift stores and a sewing machine, which is something the main character in Erica S. Perl's Vintage Veronica has become expert at.

Friendless misfit Veronica loves vintage clothing so when she manages to snag a job at the local vintage/thrift store it's like heaven. Even better is that she gets to be a picker, so she sees all the awesome vintage stuff first along with being on the top floor so she doesn't have to talk to anyone. Ever. Then she starts meeting some of the other employees: the chill hippy on the Dollar-a-Pound floor, the rebellious sales girls on the vintage floor, and the pale awkward guy they call "Nail." Unfortunately, not all her new friends get along and when salesgirls Zoey and Ginger convince Veronica to spy on "Nail" (aka Lenny) it quickly changes into something else entirely. Relationships (and outfits!) begin, end, and change as Veronica gets to know all her co-workers better and faces the challenges of trusting people.
