Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Tolle
The layout of this book makes it very difficult to read. The font used for the chapter headings, the picture layout, and the overall look of the book is poor. This book is not authorized or endorsed by Jennifer Love Hewitt. It is not a flattering review of her life. The book displays a fold-out scene connection at the end. This is intended to draw its readers into buying next month's book. The diagram shows what other stars have made movies with Jennifer Love Hewitt.
VOYA - Sarah Flowers
Each title from the Scene series, published monthly, is essentially a fan magazine-each focusing on an individual performer popular with young people. Full-color photos are on every page, including several full-page pictures, and one double-page center spread. Each contains a "low-down" page in the best fan mag tradition: here's where readers learn about their hero's favorite movie, favorite pizza topping, and worst date. The main text is a summary of the star's life and career. A fold-out page in the back contains "The Scene Connection," a kind of flowchart connecting all of today's hot stars with one another via their movies, TV shows, and so forth-a sort of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon for the younger set. I showed these four volumes to a number of people, including librarians and kids. Kid reaction, both male and female, was enthusiastic, especially among the fourth through ninth graders. Several younger ones camped out at the reference desk while they were on display there, devouring every page. One older teen turned up his nose when I showed them to him, but then said, "Oh, wait...Jennifer Love Hewitt...let me see that one." The librarians unanimously agreed that these titles would be wonderful as incentive awards or Summer Reading Club prizes, but not one would be willing to put them in the collection. As one said, "It's the kind of thing you buy for your teenage daughter, so she can cut out the pictures and put them in her room." Indeed, if these books lasted a week in a circulating collection without being stolen or destroyed, I would be amazed. Illus. Photos. Charts. Note: This review was written and published to address four titles-Brandy, Jennifer Love Hewitt, James Van Der Beek and Matt Damon. VOYA Codes: 3Q 5P M J (Readable without serious defects, Every YA (who reads) was dying to read it yesterday, Middle School-defined as grades 6 to 8 and Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9).

Read an Excerpt

First Love

She got flowers from Johnny Depp at her high school graduation. She gets paid to kiss Scott Wolf and Freddie Prinze, Jr. She has primetime power, three pop albums, and a blossoming movie career. At only nineteen years old, Jennifer Love Hewitt leads a charmed life and knows it: "Someone upstairs is looking out for me big-time. There could never be a dream or a wish that would be as good as it is right now. My life is fantastic."

Someone upstairs might be helping out, but Love has created her own success from day one. Pat Hewitt remembers her daughter's first public performance: While the family was eating at a dining club in their hometown of Killeen, Texas, three-year-old Love vanished from the table. In a panic, Pat searched the restaurant, but it didn't take long to find Love. An angelic voice led Pat to the lounge, where she found Love had taken over a baby grand piano. She was using the instrument as a stage and singing "Help Me Make it Through the Night" to a delighted audience. Pat realized her daughter had the potential for big things.

Even her name suggests, well, big things. Love. It's her middle name, but she's always gone by it. She was named after Pat's best friend from college — a tall, gorgeous blond. Love laughs about how different she is from her mother's friend, whom she has never met: "[She] was like five eleven, long blond hair past her butt, big blue eyes, freckles, and an hourglass figure. She was the most beautiful woman my mom had ever seen. My mom said if she ever had a little girl, she would name her Love. So when I was born, she of course named me Love — even though I came out, like, 5'3", brown hair, half an hourglass figure, and completely different looking." The name Jennifer was a last minute suggestion from her brother, Todd, who thought she should have a "normal" name so kids wouldn't tease her. Instead of looking through a book of baby names, eight-year-old Todd decided to name his baby sister Jennifer after a cute girl down the street.

Her first name might be "normal," but Love's childhood was not. She was taking dance lessons — jazz, tap, and ballet — by the age of five. A couple of years later she was voted a "living doll" at a Texas beauty pageant and was chosen, at age nine, to tour Russia with the Texas Show Team, a troupe that brought pure American entertainment overseas.

But Love's big break came when she was performing at a livestock show in Texas. Love remembers being discovered: "In the pig barn I sang Whitney Houston's 'The Greatest Love of All' and there was a talent scout there." Her mother was referred to a manager in Los Angeles. On February 21, 1989 — which happened to be Love's tenth birthday — the family packed up the car and Love was on her way to Tinseltown.
