Review: Callie has a secret and only Jack knows about it. In the beginning Golden Girl by Sara Zettle, Callie and Jack are caught in a fight with a small amount of people who want to capture Callie. They have to learn to survive in the golden age of Hollywood. Callie soon discovers where her missing parents are and lands a job with Ivy Bright a kid's actor. Callie, Jack, and Ivy go off on some adventures and a battle happens between Callie and Ivy. Will Callie find her missing parents? Who will win the war?
Golden Girl is fascinating because there are so many surprises. It is a good book for girls ages 10-13. It has some higher-level words so that is why it would appeal more to older girls. Golden Girl would probably not be as enjoyed by boys because the main character is a girl, and the story is about what girls like. It is a little confusing in the beginning, but all is explained throughout the story. Golden Girl even has some action in the end. The plotline is good and can be a little confusing, but once you get past those parts, it is a great book. This is a fantasy book so if you are a girl and like fantasy this is a great choice for you. Overall, Golden Girl is a great addition to the Fairies Trilogy.
