Jamie Baker, the only girl in the world with superpowers, has now accepted who she is and learned to control her power. Not to mention she has the best boyfriend on the planet. Life is finally looking good. But the day she witnesses an accident and decides not to save the guy out of fear of being exposed, she realizes that simply being Jamie Baker isn't enough.
After seeing Jamie so wrecked with guilt, the ever-helpful Ryan Miller decides it's time to make all of his fantasies about turning his girlfriend into an honest-to-goodness superhero become a reality.

Of course, coming up with a decent Super Name and fending off all of Ryan's attempts to get her into spandex aren't the only problems Jamie faces. The more her alter ego starts to make headlines, the harder it becomes for Jamie to hide her extracurricular activities from her best friend, the government, radical scientists, and the mysterious new guy who is determined to steal her from her boyfriend.

Wow... wow... wow. Kelly, I must be honest with you... you pulled it off AGAIN! You are AMAZING!

Just like the Being Jamie Baker cover, I love it! It is so vibrant, clearly stands out and you would be silly to miss it. Also, the lightening, bright eyes and explosive hair... I think she's in 'Danger Mode'.

For Jamie Baker, aka Ice Queen, having superpowers really sucks. She doesn't get to do anything with them except cause a power outage at the fear of hurting someone else and the fear of being exposed. But of course, she has Mr Ryan Miller... who thinks the best way for her to use her powers is to become a real life superhero. But with great deeds come great sacrifices as she tries to hide her powers from not only her classmates and best friend(s), but also the government, the evil scientists and Teddy (love his nickname!)

I must say though, a lot of the time I was thinking "Yo, Teo-what-what, stop asking her out. As you are never EVER splitting them two up. Okay? OKAY!?" Yes, I went into Danger Mode myself at times. However, I must be honest, I did like his humorous side but then...

This is a fun read that will constantly keep you on yours toes, but also has an adorable romantic aspect with an emotional roller coaster of which will keep you begging for more. There is also truck loads of action and danger, but additionally our usual Ice Queen and sarcastic Jamie who never disappoints in making things fun and hilarious. Furthermore, I was very pleased to see the frequent surprise of Carter popping out in places, Jamie's and his relationship is one of the funniest things I have read in a while. And then we have the ending... HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME!? Agh, I looooove it! I want the third book now!

(I apologise for the short review but I don't want to give too much away as, well, you are going to absolutely love it and won't be able to stop until you reach the very end...)

And Jamie Baker still remains to be one of my favourite superheroes, of all time!

Dead Jed is Shaun of the Dead meets Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Jed's not your typical junior high geek. He is, to use the politically-correct term, cardiovascularly-challenged. And while his parents have attempted to shield him from the implications of being 'different' for as long as they could (Jed was 8 and at a friend's sister's birthday party when he blew his lips off onto the cake in front of everyone, finally prompting the “Big Talk” from his parents and an emergency SuperGlue repair by his dad), 7th grade at Pine Hollow Middle School as a target of Robbie the supreme school bully and his pack of moronic toadies is rapidly becoming unbearable.
From being stuffed in a filled trash can as “dead meat” and into a trophy case as the bully's “prize,” to literally having his hand pulled off in the boys' room (Jed's always l…

When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now.

But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.
