Lost in translation?

Having learned some hard lessons about the costs of fame, sisters Paige and Erin Forrester feel ready to take their fashion-focused TV show on location to Paris. Unfortunately, it doesn't take long for many of their good intentions to get lost in translation. An unplanned week of filming at runway model Eliza Wilton's family estate leads to romance, jealousy, and surprises. With cameras rolling, both girls have to be careful, or the future of On the Runway could end up as wobbly as Paige's stiletto heels.

From Booklist
In this follow-up to Premiere and Catwalk (both 2010), sisters Paige and Erin Forrester take their reality TV show on location in Paris to interview famous designers and see the sights. Narrated by Erin, the less-glamorous sister, the story follows the girls as they wrestle with boy issues, are tempted by alcohol, and deal with jealous models. The beautiful French countryside combines with plenty of designer name-dropping to make for a quick read. Author Carlson once again gives girls a fun story line peppered with Christian themes and real-life concerns. Grades 7-10. --Melissa Moore --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review
Gr 8 Up--Rendezvous continues the story of Erin and Paige, who have a reality TV series about fashion. The sisters are heading off to Paris to interview designers, and glamorous Paige can't wait to shop till she drops. Erin, however, is more down-to-earth and is looking forward to taking photos, visiting important sites, and learning more about the city. The filming goes well with only a few bumps, and the sisters have fun getting haircuts, visiting designers (where Erin receives a beautiful Birkin bag that Paige covets), and working on new ideas for the show. When they meet up with a pair of wealthy models and are invited to the country chateau belonging to Eliza's family to film a charity event, Erin develops a deeper understanding of how deceitful and shallow the supermodel is, and how blessed she is to be able to hold true to her Christian beliefs in the overwhelming midst of excess. This title will be snapped up by readers of the series, but those unfamiliar with it would be better served by starting with the first book.--Susan Riley, Mount Kisco Public Library, NY -- School Library Journal
