Overview

A smart superhero book for girls with plenty of glitter--perfect for fans of The Powerpuff Girls.

It all started with a mysterious purple goo...

What happens when four best friends find themselves splattered with a bubbling, genetically altering substance during a seemingly innocent sleepover in a secret, see-through, high-tech, futuristic lab? They develop superpowers, that’s what! Iris, Cheri, Scarlet, and sometimes Opaline have become . . .

THE ULTRA VIOLETS

After a super baddie face-off with the mutants in the Mall of No Returns, the girls know Chronic Prep is in peril…
 
Bursting with glitter rainbows IRIS must keep her crazy artistic skills a secret.
 
CHERI and her sweetie skunk Darth Odor smell something fishy and none of the math is adding up.
 
High-kick, ninja cha-cha dance moves win SCARLET the lead role in the school play but even that isn’t enough to distract her from the truth.
 
And it’s all because OPALINE is turning their classmates into real debbie downers. Can the Ultra Violets stop her evil plan before their friends’ brains are French fried?

Better find out soon because...THE FUCHSIA IS NOW!

Gr 4–6—This second installment in the "Ultra Violets" series is a fun adventure starring Iris, Cheri, and Scarlet, best friends who have been transformed into superheroes with powers that include dance expertise and math genius. Readers would benefit from being familiar with the first title in the series, as their origin story isn't explained clearly at the beginning of this title. Illustrations throughout keep the book from feeling dull and help break up the narrative-at 336 pages it is fairly long for the reading level and age of the intended audience. The text throughout is peppy and youthful, though in some cases the pop-culture references might be out of touch for today's average 10-to-12-year-olds: Bell refers to the Beastie Boys and Jay Z's 1999 song, "Hard Knock Life." Bell has used language in a clever way-occasionally explaining unusual vocabulary words while sometimes misusing or making up words for comedic effect. Keeping their super skills secret, explaining what is taking up so much of their time to their parents, and combating their former best friend and current nemesis Opaline keep the characters busy. Overall, this is a good title for middle grade readers and will have no problem finding its audience.—Liz Zylstra, County of Prince Edward Public Library, Picton, Ontario

If Sophie Bell could have just one superpower, it would be to control the frizzies come rain, snow, tornado, or monsoon. Either that or invisible-flying. Like the Ultra Violets, she once had purple hair, and it came at a terrible cost—about fifteen dollars per extension. She lives with many inappropriate shoes in Brooklyn, New York.
