Ben Hatke brings back our intrepid space heroine for another delightful sci-fi/fantasy adventure. Zita is determined to find her way home to earth, following the events of the first book. But things are never simple, and certainly never easy, in space.
Zita's exploits from her first adventure have made her an intergalactic megastar! But she's about to find out that fame doesn't come without a price. And who can you trust when your true self is being eclipsed by your public persona, and you've got a robot doppelganger wreaking havoc . . . while wearing your face?
Still, if anyone can find their way through this intractible mess of mistaken identity and alien invaders, it's the indomitable Zita, in Legends of Zita the Spacegirl.
Legends of Zita the Spacegirl is one of Kirkus Reviews' Best Children's Books of 2012.

I didn't personally read it, but anything that my 8 year old couldn't put down, AND asked for his own personal copy (he checked it out from his school library), is phenomenal in my eyes!
