Lois Lane: A Real Work of Art
By: Gwenda Bond
In high school art class, Lois Lane demonstrates her undeniable talent.....but not for painting.
This is an official teaser short story for the young adult novel LOIS LANE: FALLOUT that takes place before Lois moves to Metropolis.
I normally don't care too much for short stories, especially ones that are under 50 pages long. I know that a lot can be conveyed in them if the right writer is guiding the ship -- but more often than not, these short stories and novellas for popular YA book series are just useless filler. This was available on NetGalley, so I requested it and hoped for the best. And I got it! Lois Lane is exactly how I wanted her to be - sassy, smart, and self-aware. Of course, she's a teenager, so there is some self-doubt. Lois is constantly moving around as an army brat, and she's in a new town again. All she wants is to figure out something that she's good at, something that can be just for her. So, Lois decides to try out an art class, and manages to get into more trouble than you'd think possible. If you're a fan of Lois Lane (especially as portrayed by Erica Durance on Smallville, who this Lois really reminded me of!), try reading this. I am now super pumped up for the full-length book coming out in May. I enjoyed Gwenda Bond's style and I will LOVE reading more of Lois' misadventures! Highly recommended.
VERDICT: 4/5 Stars
