Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-When Zoe Richards turns 12, her grandfather tells her the story of how he was once a superhero and that she has inherited the gene. She realizes that she's under more pressure than just what to wear to school tomorrow or if the cute soccer-star math genius really did wave at her from across the room; she now finds herself confronted with the challenges of keeping her superhero status a secret. Readers looking for something between Junie B. Jones and Nancy Drew will enjoy this story. Zoe could be the girl next door with her police-detective father, ecology-minded mom, and fashion-conscious friend. With snappy cover art and a funky heroine who is set to save the world, or maybe just her friends from an unknown culprit trying to sabotage the school play, the story will have readers lining up for the next installment in the series.-Cheryl Ashton, Amherst Public Library, OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
