About the Author

Marla Rose is a writer, activist and community builder actively involved in Chicago’s flourishing vegan movement. In 1998, she and her husband created the pioneering vegan web magazine, Vegan Street. In 1999, at the request of the “Mad Cowboy” Howard Lyman, Marla co-founded and headed the Chicago chapter of EarthSave International, eventually producing an annual event called The Conference for Conscious Living that drew dozens of vegan leaders to Chicago over the next decade. This event ultimately grew into the innovative and popular festival, Chicago VeganMania, which has drawn thousands over the last three years. Meanwhile, Marla co-founded the Chicago Vegan Family Network, which has grown into a group of dozens of families all raising vegan children. In 2009, Marla and her husband were recognized by Mercy For Animals as Activists of the Year. In 2004, Marla published her first book, Marla’s Vegan Guide to Chicago and the Universe. Soon after, she began her blog, Vegan Feminist Agitator. She is a freelance feature writer and has had her work featured in VegNews magazine, One Green Planet and the Advocacy for Animals blog for Encyclopaedia Britannica, and she has an essay published in the collection, This I Believe: On Motherhood, which was published in May, 2012 . She also maintains two different columns for Examiner.com. Marla’s work has been reprinted in the Utne Reader, and in 2010, she was nominated for a prestigious Maggie Award for best feature story. The Adventures of Vivian Sharpe, Vegan Superhero is Marla's first novel. Follow the Adventures of Marla Rose at marlarose.com Follow the Adventures of Vivian Sharpe at viviansharpe.com

I want to read about more of the adventures of Vivian and her friends, because they are really interesting and reading this book was so enjoyable.
Sandi Swiss
It is a little cumbersome to read at times, but we are reading a little each night before bedtime.

I bought this book because Marla Rose is a friend, I needed a new book to read, and the price was right. Now I will tell you why I read the entire book in 2 sittings and want Marla to write a sequel!!

I am an avid reader, thrillers, mysteries, love stories (I am a girl), and animal rights related writings. There are some books in my house that I have read over 10 times and others that are in the donate box because I cannot "get into" them to save my life.

"Vivian Sharpe" manages to introduce the reader to interesting characters and develop a plot that draws them in at the same time right away. This is incredibly important to me. I am a busy girl and don't want to waste half a book on plot and character development while waiting for something to happen. I have no idea how many "pages" this book is, but it seems like there is a whole lot of stuff that happens in a book that is not incredibly long.

Now on to the characters. They are memorable and come to life. Some may be slightly stereotypical, but are still totally believable, because we have all met them in real life and that makes the story more fun. Vivian is a very clever teenager whose life suddenly gets a lot more complicated and I found myself rooting for her many times and also relating to her in other parts of the story. The other characters are each unique in their owen way that also brings everything to life!!

The storyline is creative and kept me guessing to what was going to happen throughout the entire book. Many books are very predictable and use recycled plots. You don't have to worry about that at all with "Vivian Sharpe.

This is my first piece of fiction reading in a long time. I purchased this for my wife and went ahead and started reading it while she was working, you know.. just having a peek! Well here is my confession, I was swept away and could not put it down. Here is is three days later and I just finished this amazing read. Vivian Sharpe her friend Wren and her guide Tolstoy put me through a wide range of emotions and reflections, I connected with them and to be cliche I laughed and cried as the story unfolded. The conflict in the book is one that unfortunately is not fiction at all and the way it is handled is careful showing many sides of how we humans interact and try to approach these difficult issues. Get this book I promise you will love it.

Marla's prose is great for tweens through adults. She doesn't talk down to the children, yet she is still very skilled at letting grownups explore some serious topics. Every reader can glean their own perspective. My kids enjoyed the characters and dialog. They had their own heroines in Vivian and Wren. And as a parent I could revel in the young "superheroines" in the story (go girl power!), and I could appreciate the great detail and research that went into the background of the Gordenner corporation. No spoilers here, but I think readers of many ages will get a lot out of the book--and wonder why the sequel isn't here yet! As a friend, I have to lean a little harder: Marla: when is book 2? -- Brandy

A surprisingly good book young adult book that can be enjoyed by adults too. As a vegan, I think that this book could help teens and adults learn about animal and environmental ethics, while enjoying a good story at the same time. In a few sections the book would get a little too detailed about environmental issues, but overall the storyline was a good blend of fact and fiction. Would recommend.
