Lumberjanes #2: Friendship to the Max

When we last left campers Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley (and their counselor Jen), they had solved the mystery of Beware the Kitten Holy, discovered what was hidden in the lighthouse, and were being chased by evil zombie/wer scouts. 

The plot thickens in Lumberjanes #2: Friendship to the Max. When a routine trip to the outhouse unleashes a trio of T-Rexes, the girls of Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady Types know they have another mystery on their hands. And when fellow camper Diana displays some unusual powers during a game of capture the flag, attacking Jo and getting her transformed into stone, the Lumberjanes know they must save their friend at all costs. They find themselves in the middle of a sibling rivalry between twins Artemis and Apollo. Yes, of Greek God/Mount Olympus fame. Zeus has promised unlimited cosmic power, but only one of the twins can receive it. Thus, the rivalry. And, of course, either one of them becoming THAT powerful could mean terrible things for the camp and for the world. The Lumberjanes thwart Zeus' plan and save the day. No spoilers, though. I'll just say it involves kittens (yay! kittens). Oh, and Molly's hat is more than it appears. 

I'm going to say this right now: I love this series! The humor, the art, the action, the creativity, the grrl power (strong female characters), the running theme of friendship. And it keeps getting better! If you loved Lumberjanes #1: Beware the Kitten Holy, you absolutely HAVE to read Lumberjanes #2: Friendship to the Max, which will soon be available on our "new" shelf. 

All I know is I need #3. Like, NOW! --AJB
