Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Life in Beverly Hills is a stretch for most of us, but fans of Elle Woods and others will enjoy this story of her early teenage years. Elle's mom wishes she could get her daughter to pay more attention to her dress and makeup. Elle could care less—until the right young man comes into her life. Elle transforms her school cheerleaders, the whole basketball team, and herself in this humorous romp. The reader will be cheering her on as she hatches scheme after scheme to achieve her goal. Elle learns some new truths about herself as she wheels and deals at her school and home. This is delightful. 2006, Hyperion, Ages 8 to 12.
—Barbara Youngblood
School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-This prequel to the two "Legally Blonde" feature films will enjoy popularity among young fans of the movies and those who like nondemanding formulaic fiction. Elle Woods is a frumpy sophomore when something-no, someone-catches her eye during a basketball rally at the well-heeled Beverly Hills High School. It's handsome Hunter Perry, star of the school's basketball team, and as he pleads for student support for it, Elle's heart swells and she determines to win his affections by helping their losing team become better. Never mind that she previously had no interest whatsoever in basketball-or cheerleading, for that matter. But Elle notices that the cheerleaders are constantly with Hunter, even though their half-hearted, pathetic attempts at creating school spirit fall on deaf ears. What's a girl to do? Well, determined Elle has plans. She kisses goodbye to her frumpy image by getting her braces removed, orders contact lenses and a whole new wardrobe, and gets lots of blonde highlights. Suddenly, people start noticing her. Then, with the help of her manicurist, she choreographs new routines for the cheerleaders and designs sharp new uniforms for them. Elle's butler, conveniently a former basketball star, teaches the team to work together. It appears that Elle's plan is succeeding, but Hunter still doesn't seem to notice. How can she win his heart? The happy ending proves that Elle's not only beautiful on the outside, but on the inside as well.-Susan Riley, Mount Kisco Public Library, NY Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    pretty good

    this book was not portraying that someone has to wear cool clothes and be perfect to get a guy. elle did like herself in the beginning, but when she became different in the end she liked herself even better. in the beginning she didnt know how it would be to be different. she took a chance to step out of her current style and experimented with something different, so by the end she liked herself even better than before. she didnt go through changes JUST for a guy. She did it for herself too. there is nothing wrong with changing yourself, just as long as you really do like the change.

    Fabulously Blonde! (Or not?)

    Well, I loved it and hated it. I think what the author is trying to say is to be yourself, but what Elle becomes in the end is NOT herself! She gets sucked into the 'you have to be perfect in Hollywood' mode, and she totally changes everything about herself, just so a boy will like her, which is setting a horrible example for girls. You don't have to be mean, a cheerleader, blonde, or wear cool clothes to be cool, and this book is saying the exact opposite! It was entertaining, though.
