If you are unfamiliar with Kirkus Reviews here is a summary of their mission:
Founded in 1933, Kirkus reviews more than 5,000 books each year, including fiction, nonfiction, children's, teen, self-published books (“Indie”) and iPad storybook apps for kids. Our mission is to help readers discover new books, publishers and agents discover new authors, producers discover new stories and characters, and librarians and booksellers discover the best new books pre-release. To help separate books of remarkable merit from the masses released each year, Kirkus’ reviews are crafted by specialists selected for their knowledge and expertise in a particular field. Our critics are tough—if a book is captivating, capable and interesting, we applaud it, but if it’s not, we let readers know.
