Me vs. the Multiverse: Enough About Me

Random. (Me vs. the Multiverse). Aug. 2021. 272p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781984895790.
Gr 3-6–The second installment of the series finds Average Me trying to fix a rip in the fabric of reality and restore order in this sc-i-fi romp through various iterations of earth. Each one has its own version of Meade (aka Me) that uses different monikers to distinguish them. Without a doubt the rip is causing major issues, but Meticulous Me and Prez Me have very different ideas about how to effectively handle it. As the factions of Mes align and realign, there are times when allegiances are confusing. While Meticulous is the archenemy of Average, it seems they need to work together to save everything. Building that trust proves difficult. The book has a penchant for toilet humor with characters nicknamed O’Fartly and Pooplaski. A sense of fun in the midst of chaos pervades this quick read with cartoon drawings of the various Mes, who present as white, which pepper the book.
VERDICT Having the context of book one would help in making sense of this volume. Add to collections where the first book is popular, otherwise a secondary purchase.
