5.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing Adventure December 20, 2010
By MCS
Format:Kindle Edition
I think what I like best about the character, Cassidy Jones, is that anyone who has lacked confidence or felt awkward or shy can sympathize with her plight. Cassidy is definitely a character in a piece of science fiction, but her very human qualities, played off against the non-human ones she develops, make this an engaging read. The story is not predictable, and her "talents" don't magically solve all of her problems and improve her life. I look forward to seeing how the author develops Cassidy and the other key characters as the series continues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Written Roller-coaster May 7, 2011
Format:Paperback
Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula is one of the most creative books that I have ever read- the depth of imagery that Elise Stokes words weave put her book on par with a graphic novel, the depth of feeling and expression and thought that is expressed is equal to some of the more classic novels.. all the while keeping it engaging for all levels- appropriate for ages of kids preteen to adult, with varying occupations and interests (I'm a 27 year old mother of two little girls with a degree in engineering and a job in graphic design! and my cousins, boys and girls, ages 13-18 love it!)
Definitely a must read!

Don't read this review - Just go buy the book, read it, and then come back and agree or disagree with my review of the book.

No, really, just go buy it.

But watch out, or you'll find yourself finishing it at 3 am like I did.

I'm warning you, if you don't leave now, there are spoilers coming.

OK, you've been warned.

This series is (sort of) about a superhero in a world without superheroes.

Cassidy Jones is not a superhero, but she has all the powers of one.

You'll find threads of 3 major Marvel heroes; I'm not going to tell you which ones.

While you'll see these traces of Marvel staples, this is not Marvel fan fic, this is solid writing, pacing, and humor.

I literally laughed out loud a couple of times in each book. These are not funny books, but there is some well placed humor in it.

There is action, and violence, and 14 year old girl's reaction to said action and violence (nice emotional conflict, and no trips to the morgue yet).

The teen angst is thankfully subdued (she REALLY screwed up with a boy less than a year ago - Cassidy can tell you exactly how many days it's been.)

My only complaint with the series is that there are only 2 books in it.

I am hopeful that the author will follow Cassidy Jones from her current age of 14 (both books) and follow her through her life.

I hope that Marvel will approach the author to do a series of graphic novels.

I'm hoping that when it becomes a movie that the film producers don't destroy it like they did with Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson.

I'm trying to figure out when to start reading these books to my little Avenger loving 8 year old daughter.

Might be today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cassidy Jones is a great read December 16, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My kids both read Cassidy jones and the Secret Formula and loved it, so I decided to have a look for myself. I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to others. Stokes is an awesome story-teller with great insight into the teenage mind and the character of Cassidy Jones was engaging and relatable. I look forward to the next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over Harry Potter--Cassidy rocks! November 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I plan to visit my granddaughter during the Christmas holidays and stared "previewing" potential books to share with her. Imagine my surprise when I read this charming novel. It's a book that any adult would enjoy while reading to younger members of the family. Cassidy should become a superhero role model for girls in the future.

When Cassidy goes with her news reporter father to interview Professor Serena Phillips, a famous scientist, she accidentally crashes into an experiment and becomes a mutant. (She's like Spiderman crossed with Hermione from Harry Potter.) Cassidy is a regular fourteen-year-old girl who battles hormones and embarrassment in school while trying to control her enhanced skills. Complications arise when Serena disappears and then Cassidy's father is kidnapped. Luckily the scientist's son Emery shows up to help. He's got an I.Q. off the charts and knows enough about his mother's experiment to help Cassidy control her superpowers. They team up to track down the kidnappers and battle a super villain to save the world.

I'll be happy to share this exciting tale with my granddaughter! Luckily I've already bought the sequel, since I know she'll be anxious to continue the story.

I have to say that I was absolutely intrigued from the very beginning of this story and simply could not put the book down. Elise Stokes has woven a fantastic tale about a 15 year old girl that unwittingly finds herself becoming a scientific blunder. Turned into a super hero she soon has to join forces with the scientists son in order to save his mother from possible doom. This story has all elements of surprise and a captivating side story involving the life of a teenager in High School. This book is great for kids ages 12 and up and I cannot wait for the sequels to come!

Elise Stokes ranks up there with other YA masterminds! This is a definite must -read book!

More About the Author

Elise Stokes lives with her husband and four children. She was an elementary school teacher before becoming a full-time mom. With a daughter in middle school and two in high school, Elise's understanding of the challenges facing girls in that age range inspired her to create a series that will motivate girls to value individualism, courage, integrity, and intelligence. The stories in Cassidy Jones Adventures are fun and relatable, and a bit edgy without taking the reader uncomfortably out of bounds. Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula, Cassidy Jones and Vulcan's Gift, and Cassidy Jones and the Seventh Attendant are the first three books in the series. Book Four, Cassidy Jones and the Luminous, will be released in 2014.
