       Additional Information  
      Like most Scorpios, Eve has secrets that no one knows about - not even her twin sister Lilith. As the younger twin Eve is often led by her dominant older sister, but when Eve is chosen to be Zodiac Girl, for once Lilith is left behind. With the help of the planets, can Eve finally step out of her sister's shadow?Ever turned to your horoscope for help in a difficult time? Well, Zodiac Girls have something even better - when their stars are in lucky alignment they get a cool mobile and personal guidance from the planets themselves! But it's not as easy as it sounds - it's up to each girl to make the most of her month as a Zodiac Girl. The other titles in the series includes: "From Geek to Goddess", "Recipe for Rebellion", "Discount Diva", "Brat Princess", and "Star Child".Eve is a quiet, secretive Scorpio with a twin sister, Lilith. They are both goths. They love each other very much but Lilith has always been a persuasive, large character and often decides what the two of them should do without consulting Eve. Lilith is a high achiever - she always wins the school poetry competition. One day at school on the library computer, Eve discovers she has been chosen as a Zodiac Girl. Eve's whole family are moving house and Lilith decides they will keep the goth-style decor in their new bedrooms. But Eve has a big secret - she would much rather dress in pink girly-type clothes and have a pink, vibrant bedroom colour scheme too. PJ is Eve's zodiac guardian who is an interior designer. He takes charge of the family's house. Eve ties herself in knots wondering whether to assert herself with Lilith over the decor, PJ counsels her and she takes the plunge - Lilith is shocked but she deals with it. Eve has also been petrified of the dark and never let on...which is a problem as Lilith loves dragging Eve out for ghost-story sessions in nearby cemeteries. One day Lilith takes a group of young kids with her to a cemetery and they get stuck in a crypt for hours. Using her twins' ESP, Eve hears Lilith's cry for help, she races to the dark cemetery and overcomes her fear to save them all. Lilith later admits to copying some of her poems from the internet...she goes about making amends for this.
