'Madeline has achieved her dream, acceptance into a world famous photography college in New York. Like many people of her generation who travel, she turns to Facebook to keep in touch with her family and friends. But her move from the sleepy Australian town of Adelaide doesn't exactly turn out as she expects. From her first meeting with her chain smoking house mate and his superhero Mexican Chameleon, Duncan (who can dash across rooms in the blink of an eye), she knew she was in for an interesting time. Add an umbrella rigged by her brother to yell abuse at pedestrians when it rains, pizza deliveries to porn sets, FBI questioning for supposed 'spy photography', and accidentally blackmailing a famous model cheating, and things move from the interesting to the ridiculous. In a world of status updates and blogs, where anyone who 'friends' you can follow your every move, how the hell is Madeline supposed to get out of the hole she created?'

'Madeline Cain knows that after six chaotic months, the rest of her time in New York City will be smooth sailing with Kevin – her new squeeze – by her side. That is, until Madeline's idols drop a bombshell - she needs to pick a specialisation before the year is out or risk losing the career of her dreams. The problem? She's about as sure of her photographic passion as a hiker is of outrunning a bear.
'Thus Madeline begins her search for her one true path with student-arranged assignments featuring certifiably insane children, lip-synching rockers, a dog whisperer, and… zombies? But it’s not until Madeline secures a 'life-debt' by saving a potential mobster from a gun-wielding cross-dresser that she sets her sights on an amazing internship opportunity.
'Is her new patron really part of the mob? Can she nail this internship when all her experiments are going to hell? And how does she deal with Kevin's obsession over her escapades?
'Written as though you’re reading Madeline's Facebook page, Adventures in Fashion will leave you giggling on the floor as Maddie posts about the second half of her Big Apple adventure.' (Publication summary)
