"It's sweet, funny, positive, and action-packed.

An upbeat, powerful, quirky superhero with a strong support system made up of gee-golly wonderful parents, tough-as-nuts, baby-loving squirrels, and an almost-jaded new pal?

Add in some hilarious communications with several other Marvel heroes; a plausible, sad-story villain; robots, mad dogs, skunks, LARPers, popular girls, a zucchini, babies and animals in danger, and an endless parade of marvelous, squirrel-tested feats. What's not to love? It made me want to get a hug from a thousand squirrels.

"Funny, quirky, optimistic and just a whole lot of fun!

This is a great introduction to this lesser-known, but strangely powerful Marvel superhero. (In the comics, she's taken down Wolverine and Thanos so she's no lightweight.) At 14 years old, she's just a normal teen with a perky optimistic attitude as she moves to a new town and finds ways that her unusual attributes make her a hero.

Positive and funny, she's a great role model and this book is filled with a diverse cast of characters. Throw in some cameo appearances by the Avengers and this is a fun-filled, delightful adventure.

Thanks to the publisher for providing a copy of the book for review.

" Did I mention how much I love squirrel girl? I related to her on a personal level as a younger child. " said.

"The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale is a novelisation of the awesome comic book character's early high school life and emergence as a superhero. It's a YA book and is set when Doreen Green is fourteen and has just moved to New Jersey from LA.

This book was awesome! I mean, Squirrel Girl is already a pretty awesome character and if I had any apprehensions going in it was that the novel character wouldn't be quite the same as the comic character. But, although novel!Doreen is younger than comic!Doreen (who is in college), the authors managed to get her voice down exactly, giving the book a very similar feel to the comics. And there are footnotes from Doreen as she reads along with us.

On top of that, some of the chapters are from other characters' points of view, like Doreen's best human friend Ana Sofía (more on her shortly) and Doreen's best squirrel friend Tippy-Toe. Yes, there are chapters from Tippy-Toe's point of view. And they are in first person. And they are awesome. So awesome. And my favourite thing with Tippy-Toe is a bit of a spoiler...

" 10/10 NUTS. WILL REREAD FOREVER.I loved this book. It makes me happy. READ IT.AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHI need the sequel like, yesterday. " said.

" Hilarious and lovely and good and pure and I adored this. " said.

"In this hyperbolic age of exaggerated modifiers it is hard to take some things literally. So bear with me as I address two points.

1. This book made me laugh out loud. Ask my roommate, who looked at me and asked what I was reading, and then was just bothered by laughter she could not share because only one person can read a book at one time. Ask my cat, who does not appreciate it when something she is sitting on begins to shake and make noise. This book is hilarious.

2. Squirrel Girl is unbeatable. In this novel we follow Doreen, fourteen and never mean, as she becomes Squirrel Girl. We see her become unbeatable. It's one of the most uplifting passages I have ever read, and it features bladed robots, squirrels, and squirrel proof bird-feeders.

Omitting any hyperbolic adjectives, this is a young adult novel that anyone who enjoys Marvel comics would get a kick out of. One could skim through and just read the text conversations between superheroes, if one only wanted to laugh, but that would be missing out on a story that is well worth reading.

" I love Squirrel Girl so much so when I saw this book I knew I had to have it!This is a great introduction to Squirrel Girl, it's similar to the comics but definitely geared towards the younger crowd. " said.
