“Meena’s escapades will rescue readers from boredom.” —Kirkus Reviews
Meena discovers the secret to being a good friend and big sister in this superpower-filled sequel to Meena Meets Her Match that’s perfect “for Junie B. graduates” (Kirkus Reviews).
Meena’s life is more colorful than ever. When she finds a mysterious ring that seems to give her powers, Meena sets out to prove that she’s a superhero.
The trouble is, her best friends might not believe her, Meena’s little sister wants to be more than just a sidekick, and worst of all, an incident at school makes everyone think Meena is the one who needs to be saved.
But even heroes need help from their friends sometimes. If Meena can figure that out, she might just discover her true powers…and theirs!
At Meena’s age, Karla Manternach was a smudgy kid in tube socks. She once stopped an entire parade by running in front of a fire truck for candy. Karla liked every subject in school but always loved writing best of all. Today, she is a freelance writer who creates books for young readers. Karla lives with her family in small-town Wisconsin. Her favorite color is orange.
