A lighthearted story following a young girl as she  

chases her dreams and navigates the nuances of teen  

romance and friendships. 

Seventeen-year-old Scarlett, unlike her theatrically-gifted  

parents, is not one to spend time near a spotlight. Scarlett  

dreams of becoming a renowned fashion designer, where  

she can flex her creative talents away from a crowd. So it’s no surprise when she sneaks  into her school’s costume shop to explore the racks. Unexpected, however, is coming face to-face with Nathaniel Wilder, a talented theater student who piques a new interest.  

With fashion still as her main priority, Scarlett vows to learn how to make a 50s-inspired  dress for her best friend, Macie. After all, she needs a strong portfolio of work to help her  get into her dream school, Fashion Institute of Technology. The one problem? She has no  idea how to operate a sewing machine. Thanks to Nathaniel’s encouragement, Scarlett  

decides to shadow the school’s drama teacher to practice her skills, hoping to fuse her  passion for fashion with theater…and be closer to him for the spring play.   

Scarlett’s designs are unfolding, but a distressing event involving Macie shakes everyone in  Scarlett’s world—causing their friendship to falter and Nathaniel to unexpectedly pull  away. With building stressors threatening the rest of the year, including a rival who wants  to tarnish Scarlett’s reputation, Scarlett must rely on her determined spirit and newfound  sewing skills to keep her fashion dreams—and her most important relationships—from  unraveling.  


“Alison Schaffir’s debut novel captures the delightfully awkward feeling of what it means to  be a teenager. It’s a light-hearted story of friendship, family, fashion, and first love that  deserves a round of applause.” —Sarah Ainslee, author of That Wasn’t in the Script 

“Thoroughly entertaining and heartfelt, Your Dream For Me is a poignant story of strong  friendships and having the courage to ask yourself who you want to be. It’s impossible not  to root for Scarlett, whose genuine, spirited voice gives readers plenty of food for  thought, as she navigates her junior year of high school. Her experiences are raw and  relatable, and through her struggles and triumphs–stitched together with humor and  heart–we can all begin to unpack what our dreams are… for ourselves and for those we  care about.” —Leah Dobrinska, author of the Mapleton novels & the Larkspur Library  Mystery series

My name is Kristi and I review books and mod on TBR and Beyond on Facebook. I love to travel and go to concerts. I've been married for over 20 years. I listen to a lot of pop punk. Otherwise, I'm pretty boring. We do have four grandchildren now and try to see them monthly since they don't live close. I read mostly YA and adult mystery/thrillers. I also read a lot of middle grade and some adult romance. You can also find me on facebook, twitter, and instagram (don't post often).
