The Carter House Girls books
Desiree's (a.k.a. DJ) grandmother, Katherine Carter, turns her house into a boarding house for young girls. She hopes she can help them become proper young ladies and possibly, models. After all, Mrs. Carter had been a model herself back in the day -- a 60's fashion icon to be exact. All of the girls are quite different, but they must learn to get along. Can they cooperate and make Mrs. Carter's dreams come true?
When Taylor is caught flirting with Bradford, his girlfriend, Rihannon, is not thrilled. DJ decides to switch rooms so that Rihannon doesn't have to face her. Did Taylor really steal him away though, or was Bradford the one to blame?
The Homecoming Queen title is up for grabs. Will it be sweet (or so you'd think) southern belle Eliza, the terrible Taylor, or will DJ step up to claim the crown? Eliza's got her eye on the prize, but just how far will she go to get it?
Mrs. Carter has a man -- a very rich man - who invites all the girls to his cabin in Vermont for a weekend away. Some of the girls plan for a quiet getaway, and possibly some much needed bonding time. Others of them, however, have a much different idea of what the weekend is supposed to entail. Plans go awry.
Lost in Last Vegas
DJ and Taylor hate each other, or so you'd think. But when Taylor calls her up saying she's lonely, DJ flies to Las Vegas to keep her company over the Christmas break. Will it bring the girls closer, or make DJ wish she'd never attempted to try?
New York Debut
Eliza is excited that Taylor is gone. She thinks she'll be the hottest one on the runway without Taylor in the way. When Taylor shows back up at the last minute, the girls fight over whether it's fair or not she automatically gets a spot in their fashion show. The finalists had already been chosen.
When the girls go to Florida for Spring Break, everyone expects it to be a nice, simple vacation to simply get away. It's neither nice nor simple though, when Eliza ends up missing and they have to spend their vacation time looking for her.
With their senior year coming to an end, the girls have one last final fashion show to attend. Who will shine, who will not? Will the girls stay friends or leave the house only to never speak again, despite all of the things they've gone through together?
