Gr 2-4–In this third installment in the series, Meg is finding it more and more difficult to hide her powers from her friends after discovering a scarlet-encrusted ring that grants her super strength. When a schoolyard bully named Jackson begins to show some of the same feats of strength as Meg, she wonders—does he have superpowers, too? Or is he just a bully? Meg has to juggle Jackson, her trio of increasingly suspicious friends, and her energetic six-year-old brother Curtis in this engaging mixture of chapter book and graphic novel.
VERDICT Author Griffin and illustrator Player touch upon social issues gracefully. The dynamic fusion of graphics and chapters makes this a perfect bridge between picture and chapter books.
