Electrigirl

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Oxford

Part conventional novel and part comic/graphic novel, this is the first in a series about the adventures of Electricgirl, aka Holly Sparkes.

When CyberSky, a new mobile phone company, builds its mysterious headquarters in Bluehaven, Holly's mum is determined to stop it, fearing the dangerous effects of the mast on the hillside. Holly's best friend becomes obsessed with her free phone, and Holly is deeply unhappy. However she acquires astonishing (and rather dangerous) new super powers when she goes off for a walk and suffers a lightning strike near the phone mast.

This is an exciting sci-fi adventure narrative. Holly's superpower episodes are interspersed in lively comic strips, but the book also powerfully emphasises the importance of friendship, and the support of family.
