I have been waiting for book 3 in the Cassidy Jones series to come out! Cassidy Jones is back in an all-new adventure! In book one, Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula (see me reviewHERE) we learned that Cassidy got her superhero powers during an accident that happened while visiting a genetics laboratory with her father. Since then, Cassidy and her “side-kick” Emery (the super-intelligent son of the geneticist in charge of the lab where Cassidy got her powers) have been fighting crime and trying to figure out how to control her powers. In this adventure, Cassidy is on a school field trip to a museum to see an ancient Egyptian exhibit. She overhears some people saying that they want to steal something from the museum. It turns out that one of the bad guys is Emery’s mysterious father! Things get worse for the teenage superhero when she learns that Arthur King Jr. (that evil guy from book 1) was broken out of jail by Lily White (that evil girl from book 2) and Arthur’s super-evil mutant-making father, Arthur King Sr. (ginormous evil guy who was supposed to have died in a plane crash), come together to steal a microchip hidden in the museum display that can destroy the world. Find out how the super-powered teenager and her super-smart friend tackle the bad guys and still make it to class on time!
I am a superhero aficionado. I love classic superhero stories and I have to say – CASSIDY JONES ROCKS!!! Seriously, move over Superman! (*sigh* OK Superman, just scootch over. You’re still very cool ) This Cassidy Jones book was just as awesome as the first two (see my review of Cassidy Jones and the Vulcan’s Gift HERE). I love that Ms. Stokes wrote a YA superhero adventure series that is good for MG readers too (there are two or three times where the word a** appears, like in smarta**. Other than that it is totally appropriate for all ages). Ms. Stokes writing style makes the story very exciting and vivid in your mind. Cassidy is an awesome character. She is a hero boys and girls will love because she acts pretty much just like a normal teen and has normal teen issues (friends, school, family stuff). She seems really genuine. Emery is just plain cool too. He is cool because all of his “powers” are just because of his mind. He is just smart, and that’s awesome. I really like the twists at the end of this book and I can’t wait for book 4! Get writing Ms. Stokes!!!
Five out of five bookworms for this great story!
