Gr 1–3—Mia Mayhem is going through her ordinary life alongside her best friend, Eddie, when she receives an unexpected letter in the mail congratulating her on her acceptance to the Program for In Training Superheroes (The PITS). Surely this has to be a joke, but when Mia tells her parents, they are not surprised in the least. They also went to PITS and are actually superheroes themselves. Mia ricochets from disbelief to excitement as she digests all this news. While her mom can fly and her dad can talk to animals, Mia has no idea what her super talent may be. Mia undergoes several preliminary tests designed to uncover her secret power, but the results are inconclusive. The headmistress, Dr. Sue Perb, tells her there's no hurry. It'll come in time. The title of the next installment in the series, Mia Mayhem Learns to Fly, gives readers a good idea as to what she'll learn next in training. Upbeat and energetic, Mia will be a reader favorite. The book's design features a very readable font and short, accessible chapters combine to make this a sound choice for beginning chapter book readers. Expressive illustrations augment the text to convey the action and emotion of the characters. VERDICT A solid choice for beginning chapter book readers.—Laura Fields Eason, Parker Bennett Curry Elementary School, Bowling Green, KY
