Series Info/Source: This is the seventh book in the HiLo series and the first one featuring Gina as the main character. I bought this book.
Story (4/5): With HiLo turned human, Gina is the only one of the original gang who can still do amazing and magical things. Now Gina is seeing things that only she can see and only she can stop. She is wondering just exactly what really happened when she brought magic back to Earth for the first time in hundreds of years.
Characters (4/5): I continue to find this cast of characters highly entertaining. It was fun to read about things from Gina’s perspective. I also really enjoyed watching HiLo’s excitement and fascination with everything about being human (from pooping to awful ice cream flavors).
Setting (4/5): This wasn’t the most exciting setting. It takes place mostly at Gina’s house on Earth. However, it was in keeping with a lot of the other volumes in the series and well done.
Writing/Drawing Style (4/5): The drawing is done in keeping with the rest of the series; very bright and cartoony...it fits the tone of the story perfectly. Both the drawing and writing are fun and easy to follow. I continue to enjoy Winick’s graphic novels a lot.
My Summary (4/5): Overall this was an entertaining continuation to the HiLo series and I enjoyed it. This is aimed at a middle grade audience and I have noticed my 14 yr old son doesn’t seem to find these as entertaining as he used to. I, however, still get a good laugh out of them. They are fun and well done. I love the interactions between friends and family and the crazy monsters/aliens that pop in and out of these books.
