Review: Undaunted by her most recent job-search fiasco, fearless Frannie Miller is back to pursue her dream of finding the perfect office job. When she hears that her school is putting on a fashion show as a fundraiser and will need students to serve as models, Frannie quickly sees this event as the perfect opportunity to find the right outfit for the office. Unfortunately Frannie is asked to model a design that definitely does not match her personality, so she goes to extraordinary lengths to alter the look. Will the fashion show survive Frannie's antics?
This newest addition to the Frankly, Frannie series provides parents and teachers with another good opportunity to talk with children job searches and the different kinds of occupations that people hold. With Frannie's spontaneous decisions again having unintended consequences for the people around her, she will need to continue her job search until she finds something that best matches her unique skill set.
