What can I say about Blaze? Well, for starters, I love the name: Blaze. As in Johnny Blaze. It really added to the overall story, as well as emphasized her father's love or comic books early on.
Blaze acted very stupid in the beginning, but she does mature and become a character to root for.
This is a great book for teenagers in particular, because of the lessons it teaches. Blaze goes through a lot, but in the end she comes out a stronger person-- and that's something teens forget. It's also a great example of people not being quite who they say they are. And of teen I-though-it-was-love emotions.
If you have a teen in your home, I'd seriously recommend they read this story.
This is a very enjoyable story. I really can't think of a reason you shouldn't read it.
Blaze is tired of spending her life on the sidelines.
All she wants is for Mark the Soccer Stud to notice her. Not as Josh's weird sister who drives a turd-brown minivan. And not as that nerdy girl who draws comics.
What she gets is her very own arch-nemesis.

Mark may have humiliated Blaze supervillian-style, but what he doesn't know is how geek girls always get revenge.
