FRIENDSHIP TO THE MAX!
What a mystery!
Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are not your average campers and Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types is not your average summer camp. Between the river monsters, magic, and the art of friendship bracelets, this summer is only just beginning. Join the Lumberjanes as they take on raptors and a sibling rivalry that only myths are made of.
I enjoyed this book but this will be a brief review as I feel I already said a lot of what I wanted to say in my Volume 1 review. That’s what I find hard about reviewing graphic novel volumes: it’s like reviewing a few chapters of a book at a time, instead of the whole story.
So once again the gang are back and getting themselves into trouble. This time there’s dinosaurs, mythical gods and the mother of all sibling rivalry to contend with. I still love the relationships, the gung-ho, in your face action and the overall positive, happy feel of the book.
There was a joke in the first story that actually made me laugh out loud and I immediately had to show Nathan it because it made me chuckle so much. There was also a cliffhanger bit that made me gasp and *forced* me to read another issue before bed.
This is a series that I’ll definitely be carrying on with, and if you’re looking for a fun, colourful book with strong female friendships then I’d definitely recommend it.
