Cover to Cover: Almost Super book review
Jensen’s book is Super Good
By Kristi Kent
Growing up in the small town of Riverside, I didn’t think that I would see much action in the celebrity side of things. But thanks to former Riverside-ite Marion Jensen, we are that much closer to seeing our celebrity status go from none to almost-none.
Almost Super is 256 pages full of adventure, fighting, super powers, intrigue and deception … and that’s just in the first chapter!
It all starts on Feb. 29, at 4:23 p.m., when everyone in the Bailey family over the age of 12 gets a super power. Dad can fly, Great Aunt Silva Matilda burps fire and grandpa has super strength. Rafter Bailey and his brother Benny can’t wait to see what super power they will get.
Unfortunately, the powers they get aren’t quite what they had in mind.
Then there’s the Johnson family (raise fist and shake). The Bailey family’s arch-enemies since they can remember. Each family thinks the other is the super villains and now that Rafter and Bailey have worthless powers, how can they help their family fight the Johnsons?
Juanita Johnson is Rafter’s age and when he finds out she got a worthless power too, he starts wondering why they all got jipped in the super power department. Now it’s up to the three of them to join forces to find out how to get their “real” super powers back – without letting their family members know they’re working together.
This book is great for any age, boy or girl, and keeps the reader entertained.
My 10-year-old daughter read it and she LOVED it. The book is available on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
Jensen is holding a book signing on Thursday, Jan. 23, from 7 – 9 p.m., at The King’s English Bookshop, 1511 S. 1500 E., Salt Lake City.
