Booklist - 01/01/2022 Picking up where the first volumeleft off, Katie is on fire to learn all about being a superhero’s sidekick, but the Moustress seems interested only in binging episodes of The Great Crumpet Showdown.To make matters worse, someone is framing the Moustress to make it look like she’s gone on a crime spree, and Katie’s friends, now back from camp, both have boyfriends. Terrific. When another superhero is framed, Katie, with the help of some extraordinary cats, must pull the pieces of her life together to save her friendships and the day. Venable brings all the laughs from the first book as well as the emotional truths of tween-age Katie and her friends. There’s also a welcome bit of side-eye at how people prefer to believe social media over actual evidence. Yue’s artwork continues to be strong and Lamb’s colors impress, especially when lighting characters of color. There aren’t quite enough cats, but with cats like these, readers will always be left wanting more. Fortunately, volume 3 is set to come out in 2023. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
