Praise For The Zoey Zone

“The format will attract reluctant readers, and the story will please girls who cultivate offbeat interests with as much enthusiasm and zaniness as Zoey.”
-School Library Journal

“Tweens will celebrate the arrival of an intrepid heroine with plenty of sparkle and spunk to spare. Snappy prose coupled with graphic–novel styling holds appeal for savvy modern readers up–to–date with rapid–fire texting and instant messaging.”
-Kirkus Reviews
