Philip has three gorgeous sisters whose modeling exploits consistently derail his life, sometimes for the better. His mom’s pageant background combined with the modeling means that there is never any food in the house and rarely does anyone pay attention to him. There is some language and adult themes, but the overall theme of alienation, sibling rivalry, and privilege will appeal to teen readers and fans of The Clique and Gossip Girl.

It's interestingly written with four chapters from the four siblings, but I was never gripped.

The title is fairly indicative of the book. Three gorgeous, red-headed, teenage sisters (Daria, Polly and Amelia) have just become swept up in their first big modeling break with The New Yorker magazine, while their brother Philip is left on the sidelines, unsure of how to cope with the changes and how he fits in.

Each sibling narrates a part of the story; unfortunately, their voices all sound exactly the same, and I couldn't identify with any of them (nor did I find I wanted to, actually). The author chooses to take the most irritating verbal mannerisms of teenagers today, without a care for proper grammar, punctuation or sentence structure. Here is a sample sentence: "Which I know sounds like fun? But honestly is kind of boring." The book is dripping with this kind of sloppy, slangy language. I read this as an advance reading copy from the publisher -- one can only hope the book saw further editing before its official release. I couldn't wait to be finished with it.
