Doreen Green has just moved from California to New Jersey and is hoping to make new friends at her school.
It's hard when you're an outsider and everyone seems to have their own social circles already firmly in place.
Oh yeah, it's even harder when you have a squirrel tail that you need to keep hidden.
Yes, Doreen Green has squirrel superpowers. She can understand squirrel-speak, climb trees with ease and jump really, really high.
Initially, Doreen wants to keep her powers secret, but when she stops some local bullies in her neighbourhood, her cover is blown and social media explodes with her antics.
To make matters worse, someone has decided to make Doreen his arch-nemesis. If Squirrel Girl is going to survive, she's going to have to call on all of her friends, squirrels and humans!
I laughed out loud at this novel, especially the sections where Doreen texts real-life superheroes like Iron Man and Black Widow. I have a ton of students in the library who embody Doreen's positive, determined spirit and I know that they'll eat this novel up, can't wait to give it to them!
