The Two Jennifers (Part Deux)

Bailey Morgan and her circle of best friends, Annabelle, Delia and Zo, think that some temporary tattoos will be the perfect accessories to go with their new dresses for the upcoming school dance. Sounds great, right? Wrong.

Bailey and the girls end up getting unusual, Wonder Woman-type superpowers from the tattoos. Of course, Bailey's power is the best (I won't spoil it by telling you there powers!) and she, somehow..., has this amazing destiny where she saves the world from sudden doom of a mysterious villian. Semi-realistic dialogue inhances this but the ridiculously impossible plot takes points away. Take a cue from Scott Westerfield, Jen: subtle and believable is a thousand times freakier than dramatic plot twists will ever be! Honourable try though!

Total: Three

I loved this book.

Jennifer Lynn Barnes has some other good books too! Golden & Platinum are along the same lines as Tattoo.
The Squad: Perfect Cover & The Squad: Killer Spirit are the newest. And I admit, the premise sounds a bit hokey when you first read the summary, but I absolutely LOVED them!
