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.
Fallout is a fun read with mystery and great characters. I loved this!
Lois Lane is a character I never felt a connection with in the movies or the TV shows. But with Fallout I finally get to see what she’s all about and I love her! A teenage Lois Lane is smart, spunky and wants to save the world (or at least the teens around her). She can’t turn a blind eye when she knows an injustice is happening. In Fallout we see her in action as she transfers to a new school. On her first day of school
Lois hears the cry of a troubled student and is determined to help her out. She meets Perry White, the editor of The Daily Planet, and lands a part-time job at the newspaper. For her first assignment she focuses on the trouble at school but in turn gets in trouble herself. Lois has the best intentions but her plans don’t always go that great. But with the help of her new friends and a special online friend (known only as SmallvilleGuy) a plan to save the day is forged.
Fallout is a perfect combination of mystery and fun moments so I couldn’t put this down. Author Gwenda Bond is a creative storyteller and I loved everything about this book. I can’t wait to read the next book Double Down and go on another adventure with Lois and her pals.
