Juliet Dove, Queen of Love

Author: Bruce Coville

First line: "Hey, Killer! How's your boyfriend?"

Why you should read this book: It's a clever reimagining of Greek mythology merged into a young adult novel. Juliet Dove is a shy girl whose temper sometimes gets the better of her, but when she blunders into a magic shop during its owner's absence, she is transformed into the most popular girl in town, a pivotal axis in a supernatural plot to bring ultimate discord to the realm of men. Dodging crowds of boys who follow her everywhere, Juliet navigates the rocky realm of Greek goddesses along with the complex world of her own family and peers.

Why you shouldn't read this book: Fear of flying rats.
