Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up—A feisty guide for teens to bring their creative impulses to fruition. Fresh and fun in their approach, Johnson and Macklin walk readers through the basics of publishing a zine, mounting an art exhibit, forming a dance troupe, organizing a parade, filming a TV show, staging a play, and hosting a poetry slam. Each chapter is sprinkled with suggestions from successful professionals and other "insiders." The chapter on mounting an art exhibit offers good, practical advice. The competition (and drive needed) in these fields is fierce. The accessible text also works hard to give readers a fuller understanding of why and how women can work together in the arts—that when there is collaboration, the possibilities are endless. There's nothing new in terms of the advice, but this is a good guide nonetheless. A great choice for readers as they think about their futures.—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta

I bought this book for my daughter and she loved it!
It is unique and original and totally creative. The concept is great and my daughter has gleaned many ideas from it, staging her own open mic in our back yard and even starting a band with her friends (that lasted about a week). This book has a great voice about it as well, and the graphics are really fun. It has become the number one birthday present idea for all of her friends!

Format: Paperback
While it may be modeled for artistically-minded girls, Indie Girl's advice is just as well suited for any boy looking for a hands-on guide to self expression. I found the advice inside to be creative and helpful, and use of repeatable sections made the book easy to navigate. I especially thought the "Insider Tips" sections were worth mentioning as a standout, mostly because they bring a level of detail and accuracy to the music/fashion/drama business that I hadn't seen in other books like this. Indie Girl approaches everything from an extremely practical and can-do attitude, and its what makes this book so interesting to flip through. Definitely recommend for any pre-teen or teen with any hint of artistic interest- a great starting point.

Format: Paperback
This is book is great because its not only funny and an easy read, but it really gives good, factual tips on the logisitcs of how to start a band, or publish your own Zine and so on. I like it because it talks to me as if a I am a capable adult who can create something real, and creative. It inpsires me to start that project I've always wanted to do, and helps me find the the voice to start shouting and making waves.

I saw this book in the bookstore during the summer, and I was interested but didn't have money. Luckily, though, I can across this book recently and was happy that it was just as fun as I remembered. This book is so fun to read! I love the format and all the ideas they give to you for starting a band or making a zine. It's really creative and definitely walks you through the steps and there are websites that are really handy. It's a great book.

Well, what can I say about this one? It was right up my alley. Indie Girl has everything (Including organizing a parade!) and was a perfect read for me. Not only that, but I swear the authors of this book are geneouses. Not to give anything away...but under the "putting on a play" section, they suggested that the album "American Idiot" would make an awesome musical. Little did they know, two years later it would!

This book was creative and inspiring, and the writing style makes it fun and easy to read. I loved the tips and helpful websites they gave. Indie girl is PERFECT for any teen who loves do it yourself projects! 5 *'s.
