Fashion editor Anya St. Clair is on the verge of greatness. Her wardrobe is to die for. Her social media is killer. And her career path is littered with the bodies of anyone who got in her way. She’s worked hard to get where she is, but she doesn’t have everything.
Not like Sarah Taft. Anya’s obsession sits one desk away. Beautiful, stylish, and rich, she was born to be a fashion world icon. From her beach-wave blonde hair to her on-trend nail art, she’s a walking editorial spread. And Anya wants to be her friend. Her best friend. Her only friend.
But when Sarah becomes her top competition for a promotion, Anya’s plan to win her friendship goes into overdrive. In order to beat Sarah…she’ll have to become her. Friendly competition may turn fatal, but as they say in fashion: One day you’re in, and the next day you’re dead.

Praise for #FashionVictim:
“#FashionVictim is sick and vicious and funny and voicey… I ‘totes’ loved this one.”
—Caroline Kepnes, New York Times bestselling author

—Jessica Morgan and Heather Cocks, founders of Go Fug Yourself and authors of the national bestseller, The Royal We
“#FashionVictim gives new meaning to the phrase “Dressed to Kill”… instead of the devil wearing Prada, she’s wearing her victim’s blood in a perfect shade of Essie red.”
— Aliza Licht, EVP marketing & communications and the author of Leave Your Mark
“Every page of #FashionVictim pops with a dark and dishy verve. Fierce in every sense of the word.”
—Jessica Tom, author of Food Whore
