By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 30, 2012
Format: Paperback
Author Kathy Johnson describes herself as 'a fashion-savvy pageant mom and female version of Dr. Seuss:' she happens to be the mother of Miss Vermont 1999 and Miss Vermont USA 2001 AN she is an attorney. The ideas behind this her first book, colorfully illustrated by cartoonist Dick Kulpa, is to address tween and teen girls empowering them to make good choices. In this first edition she sets a standard for presentation that may need to be re-thought: the 8 1/2" X 11" format looks more like a term paper than a book, each page written in multiple colors of serif type for each 'paragraph and each page surrounded by garish stars and images of the featured girls at the bottom. It makes concentrating on the information printed akin to staring through a kaleidoscope, and this detracts for the messages of the story.

Her cast includes six 'starlettes' - Bekka, the smart on, Jinnie, an Eco-geek, Skylar, blonde and ditzy, Ashlee, obsessed with beauty of appearance, Lizzie, the vain one, and Sallee, the athletic one. Oh yes, and there is Punkin, Skylar's German Schnauzer. Imagine 6 Barbie dolls in different wigs and you have them. But as Johnson describes her creations, these girls are 'united by friendship, fashion, boys, and a strong sense of right and wrong, disdaining cliques and anyone who doesn't treat them and other nicely'. But these girls communicate in verse, starletteisms (word play), 'unique-speak' that defines each of the starlettes, and of course rhyme. The story i one of good against evil, good being the Starlettes universe and evil being Eva the Evil who disrupts life by morphing into werewolf/zombie/vampire/undead/whirling dervish and stirring up trouble with cruelty to animals.

I wanted to review this book because the concept behind it seemed very well thought out. The author does an excellent job illustrating the characters in a way that the intended age range would be able to relate to them very easily. However, the layout of the book is a bit distracting, which is an easy fix. I intended to give this to my nieces to read, but I do not believe they would be able to read it in the format it is presented in. As an adult I found it very hard to read. I absolutely loved the story line and concept thought, so with a few tweeks this has the potential to be THE next thing in building confident young ladies :)

This was a book that is hard to classify. Although it is written similar to a picture boook, the main characters are young teenage girls. This might be good for middle schoolers. The story is told through verse and puns. I loved that the author used vocabulary that was unique and more difficult. There are explanations of unfamiliar things at the bottom of the pages. I think the girls in my class will really enjoy this book.
