Who is AC?
Is your best never good enough? Do you keep trying and trying and still the people you are trying to help trash your efforts? Then you might find accidental superhero Lin fascinating as she brings her writings to life with the push of a button when she becomes the hero from her books. With flash photography as her superhero weakness, Lin a.k.a. AC makes an interesting if unsure teen champion whose cell phone uses binary code to transform her into a superhero.
The manga style of the illustrations is fine but if the writer hadn’t explicitly told me that the superhero is constantly surrounded by flower petals, I would not have been able to tell what the white blobs were from the illustrations. The three color style is too simple and serves the storyline poorly. Purple is used both the hero and the villian which can be moderately confusing. Full color or black and white illustrations would have made the images sharper and easier to understand.
Although the ending is somewhat satisfying, this can only be book one of at least a two book series because there are so many unanswered questions at the end.
