While running away from two school bullies, Juliet Dove happens upon a odd magic shop that she has never seen before.  Intrigued, she enters the quaint shop and is greeted by an enigmatic woman who offers her a beautiful necklace.  Juliet has never wanted anything as much as she wants that necklace and is amazed that the woman will give it to her free of charge.  This is not just an ordinary necklace, and Juliet could never guess how much the free necklace will cost her!  This necklace holds one big secret that will make the painfully shy Juliet the desire of every young man in Venus Harbor.

Juliet Dove, Queen of Love is part of Bruce Coville’s Magic Shop series.  It is a fun adventure that introduces readers to several elements of Greek mythology.  It gives a particularly excellent and succinct overview of the causes of the Trojan War.  This book is highly recommended for readers who enjoy Greek myth or humorous adventures, and it would be an especially fun book to read around Valentines Day.

Genre: Humor  •  Interest Level: grades 4-6
