Fun, engaging, and perfect for middle grade readers

It's fun, fast-paced, and awesome representation. It's perfect for middle grade readers and contains minimal violence. The illustrations are reminiscent of Into the Spiderverse. It's also a great message about friendship and community. A great read for kids but adults, too!
