When your book gets a bad review, make lemonade [video]
Lara Zielin writes books for young adults. Her latest novel, "The Implosion of Aggie Winchester," got a fairly harsh review in Kirkus. On the one hand, this shouldn't hurt too much -- Kirkus is somewhat legendary for handing out tough reviews.
On the other hand, it is her book.
So in a very creative version of turning lemons into lemonade, a friend of Zielin's took that negative review and made it into a black metal song, and then a video of the black metal song. Above, the Black Metal Book Review video of the review Zielin got from Kirkus for "The Implosion of Aggie Winchester."
