    I found this book to be hard going in a lot of places I found the constant woe is me of the main character to be tiresome The constant you are stupid treatment of the main character from the other characters to be irritating The blurb made it sound so promising and yet I felt disappointed by how much of a slog this was to read It felt like trying to wade through peanut butter It did have an interesting premise but it just felt poorly executed, like it was trying to be somethingtha I found this book to be hard going in a lot of places I found the constant woe is me of the main character to be tiresome The constant you are stupid treatment of the main character from the other characters to be irritating The blurb made it sound so promising and yet I felt disappointed by how much of a slog this was to read It felt like trying to wade through peanut butter It did have an interesting premise but it just felt poorly executed, like it was trying to be somethingthan it was I don t feel inspired to follow up on this series There may be readers out there that loved this book but sadly I m not one of them I kind of expected a decent superhero romp but this was not the case

    This wasn t my favourite book, I found myself skipping over the endless annoying banter to try and find the next plot marker The premise is good and it did pique my interest Star Girl continually battles an inexorable robot only to find the person behind the robot is someone she knows Should she destroy or save them However, based on this book, I wouldn t readof this author.

    Leaves you hangingThe story reads pretty quick I enjoyed it The dialogue was like reading how siblings talked Is Stargirl s boyfriend a villain or a bad guy Is Jupiter a mad scientist or good guy Does he have a thing for Stargirl I guess I will have to read the next book.

    This was a good and somewhat confusing story It took me awhile to figure out that superheroes are part of the norm in this world.I did love the twists that were thrown in though.

    This is not your typical superhero book This is a superhero book with a little bit of everything thrown into the story Rose Gardens is a secret hero who in real life is a college student with all that goes along with that including dating the man of her dreams who just happens to be clueless to who her alter ego really is This adds a lot of complications to their relationship, but what fun would a superhero book be without complications Yes, there are superheroes, super villains, but also This is not your typical superhero book This is a superhero book with a little bit of everything thrown into the story Rose Gardens is a secret hero who in real life is a college student with all that goes along with that including dating the man of her dreams who just happens to be clueless to who her alter ego really is This adds a lot of complications to their relationship, but what fun would a superhero book be without complications Yes, there are superheroes, super villains, but also romance, everyday college woes, the problems associated with just being a good daughter and friend, and as always with Krumbine s books, tons of really fun and sarcastic and witty dialogue Not muchyou could ask for here Plus, I ve read the followup book and it s even better than this one, but you need to read this one to get to the next Pick up this book for an afternoon full of leisure reading at its best Enjoy

    Not bad The constant monologuing from every single character got a bit tiresome through.
