FRIENDSHIP TO THE MAX!

At Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types, things are not what they seem. Three-eyed foxes. Secret caves. Anagrams! Luckily, Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are five rad, butt-kicking best pals determined to have an awesome summer together…and they’re not gonna let a magical quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! The mystery keeps getting bigger, and it all begins here.

My Thoughts:
I want to go to a camp like this with friends like this.

It seemed like everyone I knew was reading and singing the praises of this when it was first released. It wasn’t just the usual comics reading folks either. People who normally don’t read comics and graphic novels were talking about how great this is.

They were absolutely right.

The only benefit to waiting to read this is that now I can get the next two volumes from the library instead of waiting for the next to be published. This is just so darn much fun.

The main characters are smart, loyal and out to have a great time. That they end up trying to solve a mystery that has them dealing with some pretty scary supernatural stuff. They’re up to the task however and each of them helps in her own way.

If you’re one of the three people on the planet who hasn’t read this, you need to.

Friendship to the Max!
