Lois Lane is starting a new life in Metropolis. An Army brat, Lois has lived all over—and seen all kinds of things. (Some of them defy explanation, like the near-disaster she witnessed in Kansas in the middle of one night.) But now her family is putting down roots in the big city, and Lois is determined to fit in. Stay quiet. Fly straight. As soon as she steps into her new high school, though, she can see it won’t be that easy. A group known as the Warheads is making life miserable for another girl at school. They’re messing with her mind, somehow, via the high-tech immersive videogame they all play. Not cool. Armed with her wit and her new snazzy job as a reporter, Lois has her sights set on solving this mystery. But sometimes it’s all a bit much. Thank goodness for her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy.

Journey to The Force Awakens.
The second Death Star has been destroyed, the Emperor killed, and Darth Vader struck down--devastating blows against the Empire, and major victories for the Rebel Alliance. But the battle for freedom is far from over.
Trapped on an isolated world, a disparate group of rebels is all that stands between the galaxy’s freedom and the Empire’s fury.
My Thoughts:( pew! pew! pew! )
