|The giant hand of Jersey City says, KAPOW|
If you haven't read the series and need something new to check out, I'd highly recommend it. Was it somewhat familiar with a teenager trying to find their place? Yes. But that's not a bad thing, especially when it's the POV of a teen-aged girl in our crazy American modern society. A muslim teen-aged girl, with both parents still intact. This isn't an introduction to a hero who takes up the mantle because of a major trauma (parents are still alive, and so are her friends). This is someone who wants to make a difference in the best way she can. I'm down with that. Even if she is from Jersey (yes, I'm a New Yorker, born and transplanted elsewhere against my will).
