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
