Lois Lane has settled in to her new school. She has friends, for maybe the first time in her life. She has a job that challenges her. And her friendship is growing with SmallvilleGuy, her online maybe-more-than-a-friend.
But when her friend Maddy’s twin collapses in a part of town she never should’ve been in, Lois finds herself embroiled in a dangerous mystery that brings her closer to the dirty underbelly of Metropolis.

LOIS LANE!!!! How can your first impression of this book not be OMG Lois has her own story. I loved, like beyond loved, the first one. I got goosebumps just thinking of reading a book about Teen Lois, paving her own path while chatting with a mysterious guy on the internet…smallvilleguy. I was so excited to jump into this book and of course everything about it was so much more than I was expecting, I adore Gwenda’s writing style and she can tell one heck of a Lois Lane story.
The Story & Characters:
Can I just say the story is engaging, captivating, intense and edge of your seat. I loved every minutes and I LOVE Lois. I adore how this book captures what I think is the true essence of Lois and Clark. Giving Lois a voice above Clark is just beyond amazing. I enjoyed the amount of mystery and it had a lot of edge of your seat moments that had me yelling at the book. The story had two main stories going on and both had me excited to see what was going to happen next. Her conversations with Smallvilleguy had me blushing as much as her and I just love the chemistry between the two characters. I also love that Smallvilleguy is still a HUGE mystery to her. This I feel helps keep the story more about Lois and less about him. I want to tell you everything about this book but I wont because that would give it all away. From evil scientists to clones to mob bosses and so much more. I loved every word in this books and I can not wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.
Do you really need final thoughts? 😉 Read this series! Read it today. It is by far one of my favorite series and I can’t seem to get enough of Lois and Smallville Guy. I can not wait to see what trouble she gets into next and I am hoping this series just keeps going. I adore all the characters and HIGHLY recommend this series. To EVERYONE, you don’t have to be a fan of comic books to love Gwenda’s Lois Lane series you just need to be a fan of amazing stories & characters!
