Glamour by Louise Bagshawe
Sally, Jane and Helen have created the most exclusive department store in the world. This book is the story of how they met at an exclusive girl's school in L.A. and how they overcame disasters in their personal lives to succeed in the end. Older teens might be interested in this story of three young women who overcome obstacles to become fabulously wealthy and famous. This book is not marketed to teens, but might be interesting for grades 10 and up.

This novel was really interesting as it followed the lives of three very different girls. As they grew and dealt with the troubles of life you grew to feel as though you knew them. Learning about them made you want everything to turn out alright, but sadly it didn't always. Even though the end was amazing, it left you wanting more.
There were elements that made it clear it was for high school level and up, but I would recommend it to everyone.
