SYNOPSIS

FRIENDSHIP TO THE MAX!

At Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s camp for hard-core lady-types, things are not what they seem. Three-eyed foxes. Secret caves. Anagrams. Luckily, Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are five rad, butt-kicking best pals determined to have an awesome summer together… And they’re not gonna let a magical quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! The mystery keeps getting bigger, and it all begins here.

Collects Lumberjanes No. 1-4.

MY THOUGHTS

This was cute and humorous. I loved the strong girl characters and the fun art style. I did not realize this was fantasy going into it, so that was a fun surprise.

However, I found the plot to be a bit vague and disjointed. Pieces didn’t start really coming together until the last issue in this collection.

I have pretty mixed feelings toward this. I enjoyed it, but nothing about it made me want to rush to pick up the next issue. I will read vol. 2 since I already own it in my classroom library, then I’ll determine my interest in continuing the series from there.
