From School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—Before becoming a full-fledged superhero with legions of squirrels at her side and defeating iconic Marvel villains such as Thanos and Galactus, Doreen Green was an ordinary teen who just happened to have a tail and the proportional strength of a squirrel. Though not quite an origin tale, this prequel to the popular graphic novel series provides the backstory for how Doreen became the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. After moving with her parents from California to New Jersey, Doreen begins to realize that she can use her powers for good, and within a short period of time Doreen's alter ego becomes immensely popular to the point that she attracts her own arch nemesis. Doreen must find a way to cope with high school life, keep her superhero identity a secret, and defeat the diabolical son of Hydra agents. Squirrel Girl's signature humor, ability to think through situations before using her incredible strength, and desire to help others have been successfully incorporated. While the narrative is not told in the first person, there are one-line remarks from Squirrel Girl on the bottom of each page reminiscent of the format Ryan North uses to make comments throughout the graphic novels. VERDICT New readers and fans of the "Squirrel Girl" graphic novels will not be disappointed with this fun and engaging middle grade title starring a strong, positive, and utterly likable heroine.—Marissa Lieberman, East Orange Public Library, NJ

Sticklers for Marvel canon may HMPH at some of it since it is very much its own continuity. Newcomers should be able to slide easy enough into it, so long as you at least know the movies and have at least culturally absorbed basic facts on other Marvel books.
But yeah, I didn't know what to expect from this book, but I ended up loving up. Here's hoping the writing team churns out another nutty adventure in the future! They did a great job making Squirrel Girl feel strong and a bit vulnerable at the same time, the part with the people turning on her online legit gave me the sads.
But yeah, if you like Squirrel Girl at all, I'd give it a read.
