Book Spotlight


The Vinyl Princess by Yvonne Prinz
Genre: Teen Fiction
Reviewer: SBW

book jacket for The Vinyl Princess I really enjoyed this book. Allie is obsessed with vinyl records and works at a used record store on famous Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley, C.A. It is the perfect place for her to get all her great records and share her music zine.

The author throws in several music & musician facts that make the book interesting. The little bit of mystery and romance was good too. I was nervous to find out who is robbing the stores on Telephone Ave. And, Allie's secret admirer is just so sweet.

A good quick weekend read.
