School Library Journal - 06/01/2020 K-Gr 3—In this sweet story, three friends love ninjas and have created a ninja club. They decide to plan a sleepover party. For Willa, it will be her first sleepover and she is nervous, especially because the party will take place on a night with a full moon. That's not such a great thing when you are a closeted werewolf. Willa decides to make a costume that will completely cover her skin and prevent a werewolf transformation. The night of the party, things are going well until Fiona falls off the monkey bars, revealing that she is a fairy. Suddenly the moon is so bright, Willa transforms into a werewolf and Val shows herself to be a vampire. It turns out that all three girls have their own secret, and the trio realizes that they are all unique and brave. The evocative digital art includes bold colors and unique patterns, enriching the tone of the text. VERDICT These spunky characters are sure to warm every readers heart with their sincerity and bravery.—Martha Rico, Yselta ISD, TX - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
