Gum Girl: Countdown to destruction by Andi Watson

Walker Books, 2013. ISBN 9781406329414.
(Age 10+) Gum Girl: Countdown to destruction is a comic-style book and includes 3 different stories featuring Gum Girl as its superhero. Gum Girl saves the day with bubble gum! I would recommend this to girls who are independent readers, aged 10+.
Each story has a moral such as not wasting time, and getting along with others, but they move quickly and are a lot of fun. The comic illustrations are bright and engaging, helping the reader get involved in the stories and the characters. It would be a fun read for any reluctant reader who likes stories about girls and superheroes.
