Gr 9 Up—The book opens with a 12-year-old girl named Erin having an incredibly vivid and confusing dream. She wakes up and starts her paper route. Because it's November 1, there's a lot of residual Halloween weirdness out on the streets, and soon she finds herself the target of some teenage boys who are wearing costumes while vandalizing the neighborhood. Erin is rescued by several newspaper delivery girls who are traveling together for safety, and then the narrative takes a surreal turn. Some folks in the neighborhood start disappearing, and people who appear to be wearing Halloween costumes seem to be from different times or places. The papergirls try to figure out who is attacking them and why, who are their allies or enemies, and just what on earth is going on. The tale ends with a striking cliff-hanger that will let readers know that the girls' adventures are far from over. Vaughn's reputation has already skyrocketed with the success of graphic novels like Saga, and this title helps to showcase his abilities as the author of far-out fiction that will make readers think. Colorful and captivating, the artwork expertly captures the strange qualities of this memorable outing. Strong language makes this more appropriate for mature readers. VERDICT An awesome selection for older teens and adults looking for an exciting sci-fi tale with unexpected twists.—Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library

In this latest series, the world is a small town in 1988. The players are 12-year-old paper girls, and the unfamiliar is fairly unexpected.
Cliff Chiang creates these lush, chalky-pastel and vibrant scenes that further draws the reader into the era--it's an odd blend of nostalgia tempered with grit and it's lovely.
After just the first volume, I already care about the characters and can't wait to see what happens next.
Beautiful artwork - a really fun and pacey read!
bad ass girls as my idols, I would have been WAY less likely to take any of the bs I put up with in my
awkward grade school/high school years! Rainbow Brite and her gang were aaaalmost there...but I think
they were technically well spoken toddlers.
