(?   -    ) US teacher and author whose Young Adult Dystopian Near Future tale, Material Girls (2015), is set in an America insignificantly different from the real world, except that that aspect of the Media Landscape concerned with clothes and fashion (see also Advertising) has here gained mandatory control over what is worn. Everyone changes gear according to diktat. The Satire is clear, though mildly couched. The two young protagonists, one a maven with near-prescient suss as to what must be worn next, the other a clothes horse, are brightly narrated. [JC]
