Booklist Review

Battle with the supervillain family the Joneses commences in this sequel to the comical action novel Almost Super (2014). Robbed of their powers, two former superhero families, the Baileys and the Johnsons, hunker down while contemplating their next move. Unsatisfied with inaction, Rafter, Benny, and Juanita start doing some Jones-related research and get their chance at being heroes. Funny and entertaining, this adventure twists and turns as the characters search for their powers and come head-to-head with a villainous Super-super. An exciting follow-up that will leave readers eager for more.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2014 Booklist
