MEDIA REVIEWS
"This offers a much more thoughtful approach to celebrity than other pop culture works aimed at high school students and undergraduates. Recommended for high school, public, and undergraduate academic collections supporting curricula or interests in popular culture." - Library Journal
"This would be a good purchase for public libraries in particular but would also be of use in an academic library." - Booklist
