"Barbie's Fashion Success" by Bette Lou Maybee, illustrated by Clyde Smith, published by Random House, copyright 1962.
"Just when talented Barbie Roberts begins to think fame will find her in her high school fashion design class, or in the small Midwestern town where she lives, Paula Foxx - noted California swimsuit designer - comes into her life. Paula is Lady Luck in person, offering Barbie an apprentice-designer's job on her staff at Sandcastle Swimsuit Company in San Francisco. For Barbie the job is a dream com true, but she is jolted out of her rosy thoughts when she meets Linda Rhode's, teen-age daughter of the company's owner. Linda makes it quite plain that she bitterly resents Barbie's position on the staff. Even the friendship of Linda's twin brother, Roddy can't seem to stem the tide of vengeance working against Barbie. When the situation becomes critical even Paula Foxx can't help her, Barbie accidentally stumbles on the real reason behind Linda's behavior. What happen from then on provides a highly satisfactory climax to a lively story full of action and suspense that takes the reader on an insider's tour of the fascinating world of fashion design."
