SYNOPSIS: (From Goodreads)
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.
Lois Lane has always been that female aspect of the Superman series that the girls were drawn to. We love superheros… just as much as the boys, but Lois Lane was kind of the bada** sidekick that the girls could relate to and wanted to be. Friends with Superman? Yes please. Gwenda Bond took a character we all loved, brought her back a few years, and made her into an everyday teenager that we can all relate to!
‘Lois Lane: Fallout’ follows the teenage version of Lois Lane, army brat, who is now settling in Metropolis and has to make friends, stay out of trouble, and fit in. Easy enough, right? Not quite. The teenage Lois Lane that Bond has created is reminiscent of Nancy Drew and Veronica Mars. As a huge fan of both series at different points in my life, ‘Lois Lane: Fallout’ instantly got a fan out of me. Lane’s quirky personality, witty comebacks, and fearless exterior make her the new female super hero as she skirts around danger, gives the “little guys” a voice and tries to stay in her fathers good graces. Step aside Katniss and Tris… make room for Lois Lane!
Bond took a character everyone loved and kept some of those personality traits she had grown as an adult, but transformed them into the teenage version, where you are just starting to come into your own. A great coming of age story with a true female role model all can look up to. Fans of any decade of mystery meets YA fiction will love ‘Lois Lane: Fallout’. And hopefully this is just the start of all our Lane adventures to come in this series. Fantastic writing, impeccable character development and characters you cannot help but love! Five out of five stars for Bond on this piece of art!
