Scout really wants to help people in her run-down and scary neighborhood, but is frustrated at the ineffectiveness of the neighborhood watch. Her best friend Kyisha is on board...until a would be thief hits Scout in the head with a brick. And Scout begins turning into a bizarre, blue alien creature. Scout doesn't mind, as her new form helps her fight crime AND solves the problem of keeping her identity a secret. But then she can't change back. And another girl at school goes missing.

Interesting and a bit rough, like Scout's neighborhood, this features several strong female characters of color in "normal" hero-mode (as Scout calls it).

Meh. Description says this is dystopian, but there's nothing even slightly dystopian about it. It's set in the future, that's it. No talk of over-reaching governments or anything.

And if this isn't inspired by The Maxx, I don't know what is. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

An African American teenage girl in a future dystopia mutates into a manga-style creature, becomes a superhero, and ends up rescuing a young girl from a zombie. The plot touches on many teen-relevant issues, such as politics, friendship, adolescence, responsibility, and loneliness. Featuring a predominantly female African American cast and, with surprisingly comfortable ease, a transsexual character as well. The significance of that would be empty, of course, without the weight and believability of the story's characters and relationships, and the heart-tugging emotions they sometimes produce. The dialog is sharp and rhythmic and the art balances a sleek manga technique, credible future looks and grunge fashions.… (more)
