Praise for #FashionVictim
"The shallow friendships, betrayals, shifting alliances, and many, many designer shoes will keep readers hooked and laughing, if a bit uncomfortably, from Page 1 until the shocking ending." – Kirkus Review
"#Fashionvictim is a book to not only buy, keep and read, but to inhale from page one." – NY Journal of Books
“The story’s dark humor is one of its best attributes, and while the reader may wonder if Anya will get caught, there’s no doubt that whatever happens, she’ll be dressed to kill.” –Mystery Scene
"The Devil really does wear Prada! Full of suspense, social satire and deliciously dark humor, #FashionVictim is a fabulous, fun read that gives 'killer wardrobe' a whole new meaning. I couldn't put it down." – Alison Gaylin, USA Today Bestselling Author of If I Die Tonight
"#FashionVictim is sick and vicious and funny and voicey. Amina Akhtar creates a virtual reality reading experience by trapping us inside the mind of a uniquely disturbed woman. There are strong, wild decisions on every page. You feel for Anya the antiheroine... but then she relentlessly fights back with insanely excessive force and savvy... I 'totes' loved this one."
– Caroline Kepnes , New York Times bestselling author of You and Hidden Bodies
"Sharp, stylish, and gleefully sinister; you'll never read Vogue the same way again."
– Jessica Morgan and Heather Cocks , founders of GoFugYourself.com and authors of of the national bestseller, The Royal We
"#FashionVictim gives new meaning to the phrase 'Dressed to kill.' A deliciously accurate yet satirical portrayal of an industry where instead of the devil wearing Prada, she's wearing her victim's blood in a perfect shade of Essie Red."
– Aliza Licht , EVP marketing and communications and author of Leave Your Mark
"I couldn't get enough of Amina Akhtar's utterly original send-up of the fashion industry. Every page of #FashionVictim pops with a dark and dishy verve. Fierce in every sense of the word."
– Jessica Tom, author of Food Whore
