My first review--School Library Journal

Ok, so this may  not be a huge deal, but I just found out that my book was reviewed by School Library Journal as part of the ZODIAC FUN set.  Well, maybe it is sort of a big deal...

The things you discover when you Google yourself...:)

from April 2010

ASSELIN, Kristine Carlson. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn: All About the Earth Signs
ISBN 978-1-4296-4013-8. LC 2009029192.

Gr 3–9—Trendy design and casual, almost slangy word choice ("stylin'," "crush-worthy") fit the lighter-than-air subject. Each sign is outlined in terms of style, career ideas, personality pluses and minuses, and examples of famous people born under that sign, including a profile of one particular celebrity. Compatibility with other astrological signs and specific relationship advice are also given. Celebrities chosen are all entertainers (e.g., Beyonce, Robert Pattinson) with the exception of Barack (Leo) and Michelle (Capricorn) Obama. Photographs tend to show people (mostly girls) in action. A low word count and large pictures in a magazine format are aimed at hi/lo readers. A different quiz in the back of each book gives these titles pass-around appeal.—Paula Willey, Baltimore County Public Library, Towson, MD
