Review: Double Down

Double Down Double Down by Gwenda Bond
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lois Lane as a teenager is much like the Lois Lane you know—she's feisty, smart and knows how to chase a good story. But in this world where she also has to deal with making friends, meeting curfew and finding the courage to tell her online buddy how she feels about him, Lois Lane shines as a fun character.

Double Down by Gwenda Bond is the second in this Lois Lane series, but I didn't read the first one, so it is easy to read as a standalone novel. In this story Lois must help her friend Maddy figure out what is wrong with twin sister Melody before it seriously impacts her health. This adventure leads her to Suicide Slum, the worst part of Metropolis to try and find out about a secret lab that Melody visited. Add to this the stress of Lois trying to help SmallvilleGuy (wonder who that could be?) figure out who is reporting sightings of a flying man around the Midwest.

Although the writing in this book is standard YA stuff, if you love Lois Lane and want to see a version of her before she's the intrepid adult reporter for the Daily Planet, you'll want to check out this series.
