Shiny Issue 2 Review

A lovely review from Rich Horton in the latest issue of Locus

"The second issue of the Australian YA zine Shiny again features three fine stories, and again my favorite was the most light-hearted: Tina Connolly's "The Goats Are Going Places" is something of a sendup of YA hits like Gossip Girl, which is notoriously based on a real prep school in Manhattan. In Connolly's story her heroine is kicked out of her public high school and then sent to live with her aunt and to attend a high-end school. She gets in with the "in" girls, but perhaps takes things too far. Except that her aunt can do magic and uses some to teach her niece a lesson."
