Tween Book Review – I So Don’t Do Spooky by Barrie Summy

I So Don't Do Spooky
I So Don't Do Spooky

So, I So Don’t So Spooky by Barrie Summy is the second in a series about sleuth Sherry Holmes Baldwin  While you might think this is just your average run of the mill detective story – think again, cause Sherry’s specialty is supernatural mysteries – and this time an evil spirit is out to get her new stepmom.  With the help of her real mom – who’s a new member of the Academy of Spirits – that’s for ghosts who help out on earth, Sherry has to figure out who has it in for her stepmom, an crunchy granola computer teacher at her school.

And, to make things even more crazy, Sherry needs to balance her boyfriend Josh and her best friend’s Junie interest in robotics – and the slightly nerdy science guy.   Sherry’s no geek herself, but she’s plenty clever – and it’s a good thing, because she’ll need all her wits to solve this mystery.    Be sure to check out the first in the series and keep your eye out for the third book coming this spring.

There's Beauty in Going Green

Hey girls! Poppy here, with some news about a celebrity who’s not so clueless about helping the environment! If you’ve seen the movie Clueless, then you’re familiar with Alicia Silverstone, the actress who plays the main character Cher Horowitz. Alicia Silverstone made that movie when she was just a teenager. Now, Alicia is known more for being an outspoken vegan and an environmental activist than as an actress. So what is she doing now? Alicia just designed a collection of green make-up cases and brushes with EcoTools, in hopes to show girls that you don’t necessarily have to sacrifice your style in order to be environmentally conscious. “You can use earth friendly materials and still look fantastic!” Alicia has said about her new collection.

If you want to fill up your environmentally friendly make-up case with beauty products, make sure you fill it with some green make-up! (Okay, maybe not ACTUALLY green, since you might look weird wearing green lip gloss, but you know what I mean!) Companies that sell beauty supplies are creating more and more products that are environmentally friendly. So the next time you look to buy some new lip gloss or eye shadow, make sure to buy products that are green! Make-up like mineral make-up is even supposed to be better for you, too, and is less likely to clog pores. See? Going green doesn’t just help the environment, it helps you, too!
