Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

British charm radiates from every panel of this graphic novel. Teenage Charlotte is a beautiful rich kid who gets everything she wants, but a poor Photoshop job on a fake ID gets her busted when she tries to get into a nightclub. Her punishment is to spend the summer in the country with her grandparents at the country club they run ("It's like a crummy idea for a reality show that might be funny if it weren't actually starring me"). Geraldine, one of her grandfather's employees, tells Charlotte that there is a dark secret at the heart of her family; a few days later, Geraldine is found dead in a water trap on the golf course. Due to ritualistic aspects of the murder, suspicion first falls on a pack of neighborhood "goth" teens, but Charlotte begins to suspect her grandfather may be guilty of a crime of passion. While Charlotte juggles a blossoming romance with the drudgery of running the country club's pro shop, a bona fide mystery begins to emerge-and the payoff, which involves human sacrifice, a secret coven and odd astrological symbols, is both satisfying and humorous. While the target audience for the Minx imprint is girls, most boys will also find this fun. Ages 10-up. (July)

Gr 7 Up Charlotte, a rebellious Londoner, is sent to live with her grandparents in the country as punishment for sneaking out to a club with a fake ID. She is predictably bored with her life, but things change when a friend of her grandparents is found dead. Charlotte and a cute local, Howard, decide to investigate, and the two eventually uncover a coven of witches that makes regular sacrifices to a dragon. The sharp-edged illustrations are manga-inspired, but they're more expressive and contain more detail (especially in Charlotte's elaborate Goth outfits) than usual. The protagonist is a witty, engaging character and the plot is full of action, though the rushed ending is disappointing. Still, this is a smart, quirky tale, and its stylish illustrations and fast-placed plot give it mainstream appeal.-Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

    After reading Plain Janes, this is one of some graphic novels mentioned and it sounded good.

    So while reading this, I kind of liked it, loved the art style and of course some of the outfits. Plus the art reminded me of that show Danny Phantom.

    Then it got a little weird, near the end, sort of but still it was a fun read.

    Did Not Like!! =/

    The book Clubbing by Andi Watson is about a teenage girl, Lottie who got into trouble for trying to get into a club with a fake I.D. Lottie now has to spend a year with her grandparents who live in Medowdale, England to repay for her action. I did not like the book clubbing. Because of the book title, Clubbing: partying in clubs, you would think it had something to do with clubbing but it actually ends up meaning golf clubbing! I found it boring and very confusing. Throughout the entire book new characters would be introduced making it confusing. Not very many events happened and when something did the author would draw it out. If I wasn't reading this book for school I wouldn't have finished it. I wouldn't suggest reading this book.
