I'm not sure I agree with the motives of the characters as written. They are plausible, but I felt they relied a bit on a level of intellectual laziness on the part of the characters themselves, and that didn't fit with my impressions of the characters.
Still, for a very short mystery this had a good start, a steady pace and a complete, if slightly unsatisfying conclusion. OF course that just leaves plot threads dangling that Kid Sensation can claim in the next big story.
Not a top story, but fun, I'd say almost 4 stars, but the 3rd act just left me feeling like it was a "tastes great, not filling" tale and brought it down to a high 3 star in my opinion.
The one valid storyline in the book that could have been pursued, but wasn't, was the patronizing attitudes of adult Supers towards teenage Supers. Electra had a very valid point in that the teenage superheroes are expected to pitch in and help when needed, There is an expectation of Adult reasoning and responsibility when performing as a Super, but the teenage Supers are treated like children once back at Base/Home. The actions taken to protect others and help with the aftermath of a natural or man-made disaster cause one to grow up quickly, especially for a child still undergoing puberty. Plus the exploration of the legal issues regarding an underage superhero being held to account for some very adult actions and responsibility would be an interesting read.
However, that issue is overlooked and what is left is essentially a throw-away story. I never felt the protagonist was in any real danger, plus I could have really cared less about any of the characters in the book.
