'This is SO good. You HAVE to read this!' said my 9-yr old daughter as she finished Song Bird Superhero. She's a fickle reader, but she read this book in two days, then took it to school to show her friends. When I asked her what she liked best, she said 'I loved that the superhero had to discover her superpowers and learn how to use them, instead of just knowing straightaway.'
Song Bird Superhero is such a fun read. Rosella Ava Bird, the heroine, wants to fly and spends her time inventing all kinds of wonderful contraptions, like mechanical wings and a flying Robo-Maid which accidentally washes the cat. As the book progresses she discovers her superpowers, but the boy next door, Frank Furter, seems intent on ruining her life. While struggling with Frank's bullying tactics, Rosella also has to deal with the reactions and disbelief of her family and peers/teachers at school as she struggles to control her powers.

A fun, empowering, inspiring read for middle grade children everywhere.
