New Reviews Coming This Month

Two Lobster Press titles were recently reviewed by ForeWord magazine.

ForeWord magazine (which focuses on independent book publishers and has a readership of approximately 20'000 librarians and booksellers) will feature reviews on Lobster Press' Emily's Rebellion (part of the Not Just Proms and Parties series) and They Called Me Red. The reviews will be featured in the November/December issue of the magazine.

The review for Emily's Rebellion is highlighted in a section titled "Beyond Sex Ed" which noted that books like the ones from the NJPP series "can all help girls make it through those years of hormones and painful learning experiences" and states that while the NJPP series is aimed at reluctant readers and ESL students, the books are "suitable for any teenage girl with a busy schedule."

They Called Me Red was also reviewed. In the review, author Christina Kilbourne was complimented for her tact in dealing with a sensitive topic such as human trafficking. The reviewer noted that "Kilbourne gets the dread across [and] the sex necessary to advance the storyline is handled tactfully; fear and circumstances of imprisonment are the main focuses."
