Description

In this breakthrough graphic novel from the award-winning author of "Mercury," there's a new superhero in town--and she's got kick-butt cyberpowers. Meet Lin, a formerly average teenage girl whose cell phone zaps her with magical powers. But just as superpowers can travel through the ether, so can evil. As Lin starts to get a handle on her new abilities (while still observing her curfew!), she realizes she has to go head-to-head with a nefarious villain who spreads his influence through binary code. And as if that weren't enough, a teen blogger has dubbed her an "anonymous coward!" Can Lin detect the cyber-criminal's vulnerability, save the day, and restore her reputation? With ingenious scripting from graphic novel phenom Hope Larson and striking art from manga illustrator Tintin Pantoja, this action-packed story brims with magical realism and girl-power goodness.show more

Review quote

"Known for graphic novels steeped in magic realism, author Larson ("Chiggers", 2008; "Mercury", 2009) now adds the superhero genre to her repertoire of coming-of-age stories.... Clever plotting and Pantoja's expressive, manga-influenced artwork help to pull the reader through the intertwining stories, setting up a strong introduction to what will surely become a series. Fans of Naoko Takeuchi's "Sailor Moon "will find a lot to like here, and the added technological twist adds a freshness to the subgenre."show more
