I'm a big fan of Susan Helen Gottfried's work. Her characters are richly drawn and believable.In this book, Lynne is a little girl who is often dragged along with her dad on his shopping trips for clothes that he thinks will make him look impressive to others. Lynne likes to daydream about the mannequin in the window (she calls him Ken) and how different he would be from her father. On one of the shopping trips, a fellow walks into the high-end store and asks for a purple shirt -- an action which makes both Lynne and her father look at life differently by the time all is said and done. Readers of the ShapeShifter series will be delighted by this particular cameo.A brief and enjoyable read.
