Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

Author Gwenda Bond has Lois' lingo and attitude down pat, and she makes the female reporter a viable heroine for the 21st century. Lois Lane is an iconic female character in popular culture, and it's great to see her front and center in a new high school adventure-mystery novel.

FALLOUT stumbles a bit, however, in its choice of villains. The hive-minded Warheads are definitely creepy, but their robotic behavior doesn't generate much suspense. The book might benefit from the appearance of a Lex Luthor rather than focusing on a group of cyberzombies. Nevertheless, the novel has much to recommend it, including a sharp wit and a fun sense of adventure.
