"People in the News is a series that covers the lives of contemporary newsmakers of all ages in movies, in the arts, science, politics and everyday life and includes their contributions, achievements, and information about their lives."
---Book of Note 2011, Tri State Young Adult Review Group
"Junior high librarians will find this series to be a solid addition to their biography section. The tales about each person gleaned from a broad variety of sources show students the value of balanced reporting. The vivid color photos and user-friendly layout of the books as well as their moderate length will provide students with a thorough yet undaunting look at people they care about who are in the news."
