The story has the theme and plot and imagination to be a really great book. Though, if failed. It was so slow getting started and the heart and interest of the book happened in the last 20 min. The entire story and plot was centered on what really should have been accomplished in the first couple of chapters. I think that the author intended to set the story up for a sequel but the attempt was disappointing. In the end I was ready for the story to be over having only thought it was just so-so and as she was wrapping it up, the first really interesting thing in the whole book happened and then it was over. ugh. Not good.
Imagine the legally blond version of wonder woman. Except, without the humor. The story is fun, its interesting to see the characters developing into superheroes. They even have stretchy spandex costumes. The story is fun but, the main character is clueless. Even her buddies on the superhero squad tell her so. By the end of the second book I wanted to use her incredible strength to smash her face in a wall. I kept expecting her to wise up. There were so many opportunities for her to develop her character and to become more mature. I was disappointed, she just kept whining. There were "did I do that?" moments on every page. The problem is, without any growth it becomes difficult to continue to sympathize, or even like, her as a character. The good news, book two ends in a "did I do that" moment comparable to the gamma-ray creation of the incredible hulk. So, I hold out hope that our little darling will see the error of her idiocy and the third installment will provide a more mature, more superhero-y character.
I'm not sure what couldn't catch my attention, but I simply couldn't get attached to the story. It was dull.
