It’s spring and to celebrate, Jude recaps Batman #181: Beware of Poison Ivy by Robert Kanigher.
Dove recaps Making Out #10: Nina Shapes Up by Katherine Applegate (and Michael Grant) in which Nina is neither shaped nor shapeless, but Zoey is a complete pain in the ass
Title: Zoey Plays Games Front Blurb: Life was bliss for Zoey and Lucas until Aaron showed up on the island. Now Aaron wants Zoey. Claire wants Aaron and Zoey’s got a secret that EVERYONE is talking about. How long before Lucas finds out that Zoey Plays Games Back Blurb: Zoey plays games with Aaron and sets off a wave of broken hearts. Because Lucas is in love with Zoey, Claire has vowed to make Aaron her own. But the island is too small for big secrets. Initial thoughts: I don’t remember this book. It’s Zoey story, so that’s probably why. Fun fact- this is the first Making Out book that wasn’t written by Grapplegate – they handed the series over to ghostwriters from book 9. Also, there are also no more reprints for these later books, so it’s firmly nostalgia from here onwards. [Dove: Oh good, a Zoey book. You know how highly I regard the Passmore family in general, and Zoey in particular. This is the point where I really got sick of her nonsense, I think.] [Wing: I’m pretty sure life wasn’t bliss for Zoey and Lucas, book, but cool. Coooool.]
