ZonderKidz Ciao

The sweet life might just turn sour. After the events in the Bahamas, Paige's engagement to designer Dylan Marceau is about to fall apart-and so is Paige. Erin's state of mind isn't much better. In addition to keeping Paige in check, Erin is dealing with Bryce's new TV career, as well as having to care for Fran during her chemo. A trip to Milan might be the break both girls need, but things only seem to get more complicated once they land in Italy. Dylan is also in Milan, and Paige's rekindled romance, combined with a new director, leaves Erin with more work on the show. Just when Erin can't take any more, she discovers a secret that could crush Paige. Clinging to God for direction, Erin must find the power to make a difficult choice, one that could not only hurt her sister but throw the show into turmoil. 224 pages, softcover from Zondervan.

Ciao was a good finishing book in the series On The Runway, but I have to say I was slightly disappointed by the ending! I thought there would be more to the the last book in the series, like what about Erin and Gabin? Will they date? Did Blake ever hook up with Grace? Or will Blake hook up with Erin again? Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed this book and this entire series I just was expecting a different ending! I wish there was going to be more in the series! I'm not ready to let Paige and Erin go because there lives seem so fun and Erin always stuck with her faith! :) Overall I would say a 4.5 stars!

It seems as though this maybe goodbye to our On the Runway cast Paige and Erin Forrester . In Ciao which by the way is Italian for Goodbye , we see the girls off to Milan eventually but not before heading to New York. So , what's our favourite characters been up to as it feels like a while since Ive read a On the Runway novel. Paige's engagement to Dylan has been called off or is it back on as at the end of Book #5 in the Bahamas we read as Dylan stayed the night in Eliza's room , though Dylan swears black and blue nothing happened, his actions and Eliza's words speak otherwise. Can Paige and Dylan work things out or is this the end of the happy couple ? Benjamin Kross and Blake are about to get a taste of their own reality show and it's move over On the Runway and Hello Celebrity Blind Dates. Is Blake ready for the big screen ? Fran's leukemia isn't going well but thank goodness that they have found a bone marrow transplant for her , as she goes in for surgery - will the results be positive or is it sad news for the On the Runway cast ? Paige and Erin's mum is over the moon with her new husband Jon but when she leaves Channel 5 News to help step into Fran's shoes - can she switch between the roles of Mother, Parent to Producer/Director ? Mollie , is the proud mother of a baby girl called Fern -she should be happy but Mollie is suffering from a case of PPD - Post Partum Depression aka Baby Blues , can Erin get the help Mollie needs ?
Find out all this and more in Ciao -On the Runway by my favourite Christian Author Melody Carlson.

ON THE RUNWAY: CIAO
By Melody Carlson
Reality is an illusion as Paige and Erin Forrester are about to discover.
Paige is basking in the limelight of her TV career in fashion - she hosts and stars in ON THE RUNWAY, travels the world, and is engaged to rising fashion designer Dylan Marceau. Can life get any better!
Meanwhile younger sister Erin, who also stars in ON THE RUNWAY, is worried about her friends. Mollie a new single mom is dealing with the choices she’s made. Her maybe boyfriend Blake is caught up in his new reality show. Fran is fighting Leukemia. And Erin is always concerned for Paige and her relationship with Dylan. But through it all Erin leans on her faith in God and always Him to lead her and to give her strength to help those who are dear to her.
This book will appeal to teens and young adults who follow reality shows and the fashion industry. The behind the scenes look at the lives of people who “live the life” should give anyone pause who desires it. What you see on the camera is not real, but is in fact an elaborate illusion created by those behind and in front of the camera.
CIAO is a good read with a thoughtfully delivered message!
