Jillian Jayes was a normal girl. Well, not really, but don't tell her that. She loved nothing more than judo, skipping school, and watching the superheroes fight crime all over Gigacity. But when her father is killed by super villains and her mother insists they move out to the country, she's forced to adjust to small town life. It's tough going, but she soon learns that the smallest towns can hold the biggest secrets.

My 4 year old and 6 year old were entranced by this book, just as they are by the Stories Podcast (which is written and performed mainly by the same people as this book). My kids will be bouncing off the seats, fighting and yelling in the backseat, but as soon as I put on Amanda Weldin reading a Daniel Hinds story, they are mesmerized. It's like audio Valium or something. And the story is entertaining enough for parents, too, to not go bonkers!
Thank you, Amanda and Daniel! Please make more!
We have enjoyed listening to the Stories Podcast for quite a while now, and have loved everything they put out. This is yet another high quality, imaginative story from Daniel and Amanda. I love that my 5 year old and I can listen together and it captures both of our attention and imagination. Amanda has a wonderful voice and is a great narrator. Can't speak highly enough; five stars all the way around!!
I listened to this story with my 4 year old twin boys, and while a lot of it went over their heads, they still listened the whole time with rapt attention and were upset when it was over! I was entertained by it too, so it's a great listen for all ages. But it would especially be great for preteens who love superheroes, I think. We are big fans of Stories Podcast, and this book was just as great as their usual releases.
