My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Publisher: Boom Box!, imprint of Boom Studios

graphic novel, YA
Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley are five friends at a summer camp for Hardcore Lady Types. They do the things one does at summer scout camp: learn about plants, earn badges… and fight supernatural forces at work around their camp. Wonderfully diverse in look and personality, these girls have the motto “friendship to the max” to get them through the crazy stuff they encounter… including hipster yeti!

It is peppered with references to awesome women (Holy Mae Jemison! and Where the Juliette Gordon Low have you been!)…

… including one I am embarrassed to say I didn’t know and proud to say I looked up.

This was a super fun and hilarious read that will hopefully get readers looking things up, too.

PS: Definitely going to start saying ‘what the junk’.
