Book Review: Juliet Dove Queen of Love

Juliet Dove, Queen of Love (Magic Shop, #3) Bruce Coville 
I liked this much more than I expected to. I read it because I have been looking for age appropriate fiction based on Greek mythology for my six year old. He's not ready for Percy Jackson quite yet and I assumed this book would be too pre-teeny for him, what with being about a shy 6th grader who suddenly has the power of Cupid around her neck. 

But Coville handles it without the schlock one usually finds in pre-teeny novels and, surprisingly, it's an intriguing book with enough placid adventure to make it perfect for the current mindset and interests of my kid.
