Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
27: First Set introduced readers to Will Garland, aspiring rock musician who just turned 27. This age is significant in the rock world (referred to as the “27 Club”) after famous musicians, including Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, and, just recently, Amy Winehouse, died at 27. Now, someone or something wants to make sure Will doesn’t make it to 28. This volume picks up his story and creative supernatural abilities, which are being thwarted by Valerie Hayes, a 1980s one-hit wonder who wants another shot at fame but needs Will’s special gifts to do so. With the help of the God of Fame, Valerie goes after Will with a vengeance, and, ultimately, a music battle ensues.

Verdict Although it does help to have read 27: First Set in order to understand the powers Will possesses and some plot points, this volume may be enjoyed on its own. The first volume is on YALSA’s 2012 Great Graphic Novel for Teens list.—Lucy Roehrig, Ann Arbor Dist. Lib., MI(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
