Reviews for Amelia Rules! 3 : Superheroes

Booklist Reviews 2007 September #1
In this third volume of the Amelia Rules! series, the school year has ended, but summer isn't carefree. Amelia must deal with the possiblity of moving out of the neighborhood; then her new friend Trish hides a terrible secret within the fantasy adventure she is writing. The real drama of the story, however springs from the dare Amelia takes while playing Truth or Dare. Gownley continues to blend slapstick comedy with serious, poignant issues in a way that will draw a wide age range, and his colorful, kid-friendly art, in simple yet sophisticated panel layouts, will keep readers going forward with the story.
