Juniper Berry

Written by: M.P. Kozlowsky

First line: The house was a mansion, the lake was a pool, Kitty was a dog, and Juniper Berry was an eleven-year-old girl.

Why you should read this book: Ever since they've made it big in Hollywood and achieved all their dreams, Juniper's parents seem to have forgotten completely about her, about everything besides their next role, their next review. This is no ordinary narcissism: the boy down the road, Giles, has the exact same problem, and together they figure out where grown-ups  are going to buy their hearts' desires, and the price they're paying. A nice tale about temptation and values.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You'd sell your soul to the devil to make it in this business.
