Lois Lane is starting a new life in Metropolis. An Army brat, Lois has lived all over—and seen all kinds of things. (Some of them defy explanation, like the near-disaster she witnessed in Kansas in the middle of one night.) But now her family is putting down roots in the big city, and Lois is determined to fit in. Stay quiet. Fly straight. As soon as she steps into her new high school, though, she can see it won’t be that easy. A group known as the Warheads is making life miserable for another girl at school. They’re messing with her mind, somehow, via the high-tech immersive videogame they all play. Not cool. Armed with her wit and her new snazzy job as a reporter, Lois has her sights set on solving this mystery. But sometimes it’s all a bit much. Thank goodness for her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy.
You know when you catch a glimpse of a cover and think, I need that book? Has it ever happened that you see the Title of the books and think OMG I need to have that? That is what happened to me with this book. I just so happened to see this book in passing and thought Lois Lane? Is that a Lois Lane story? OMG is it LOIS LANE AS A TEEN? Did the synopsis say she talks to someone named smallvilleguy! I need this book like yesterday but I had to wait till May 🙁
I was SHOCKED when it came in the mail because I won it. What are the odds that my most anticipated book of the year for me was now in my hands. I was screaming and jumping up and down, I may have hugged it a few times and gave it a loving sniff.
I wont spoils this book for anyone because you need to read this book to experience the awesome story it holds. Gwenda Bond captures the Lois Lane we all know and love, she is Lois, hard ass and would do anything to get the story and it’s her story not superman, her story, for the first time she is the Main Character and he is the side kick. The story was a Lois Lane exclusive, all the impulsive and carelessness that goes with her getting a the story is in all the pages of this book. She goes above and beyond to get what she wants and of course her heart is in the right place when it comes to helping people. I was blown away, honestly, blown away.
I few parts of the story I got a little confused but you don’t stay that way for long, I just process things a lot slower than others 🙂 I love the characters and the story was fantastic. Gwenda Bond can tell an amazing story and I am hoping this is the start of an amazing series following Lois until she finally meets Clark maybe? A few books about her side of the story? I would love that and get chills just thinking about it. This will forever be one of my favorite books!
I do hope this review isn’t confusing, I really just don’t want to spoil all the details of this amazing story. Ahhh! This book is beyond awesome with a great cast of characters and the true essence of Lois Lane, this is a great book for anyone that is a fan (or not) of superman and always wanted Lois to have her own story. Happy to say this is my first book from Mrs. Bond and it will not be my last. She is an amazing story teller and I look forward to reading more from her. I can’t wait for everyone to read this book!
