heads and making all the other girls jealous. Plus, the price tag says the hoodie used to be $200.00, and now it's marked down to $150.00. That seems like a small price to pay for all that coolness.
Megan's mom, on the other hand, thinks that $150.00 is a ridiculous price for one sweatshirt, especially since Megan already owns something just like it. It doesn't have the Joy logo or the rhinestones, but it's the same color and quality, and looks great with jeans, cords, or even a skirt.
The hoodie debate turns into a big argument. Megan's mom gets so frustrated that she hands Megan the $200.00 she had budgeted for her fall clothes and tells her to buy what she wants. Megan quickly buys the Jack Joy hoodie, and with the remaining $50.00, gets one pair of jeans. Everything else she wears to school this year will have to be from last year.
On the first day of school, Megan gets a couple positive comments on her pink Joy hoodie, but nothing like the reaction she expected. Then she sees that two other girls are also wearing it, and she feels like a trend follower instead of a trendsetter. From then on, she's even a little embarrassed to have it on.
