The book clearly has been written with a lot of imagination,empathy and creative freedom in mind. Danu's story of life, her loneliness, her fears and her anxiety are things that almost all would find relatable.

Zodiac Girls "Recipe For Rebellion" tells the story of Danu and her lonliness when she is forced to change schools and live with her aunt. As a sagittarius, Danu feels isolated and upset at the lack of open spaces, her pets, friends. Add to this a workaholic aunt and Danu is at the end of her tether and as the book cover says turns from a straight A student to any teachers worst nightmare.
However Danu is helped by the planets and comes to realize that life really is what we make of it and manage
