When a Manhattan pizza maker is found dead in his own dough, Magno Girl enlists the aid of her biker ninja boyfriend to help solve the crime – and quickly discovers there’s more to the pie than meets the eye, including a sinister plot that spans the globe. 

Magno Girl leaps into action. After all, she can fly, she can fight, and she can use her fearsome superpower, the “Gaze of the Guilt,” to bring a hardened criminal to his knees. But the road ahead is hard. The city’s other superheroes despise her, and the cops don’t want her around, and her own mom won’t stop spitting out advice about marrying a “respectable guy” and trading in her crime-fighting career for a baby carriage—but is she attracted to “respectable guys”? And is she interested in emotional commitment? And will finding real love be her biggest challenge of all? 

Welcome to the world of Magno Girl, an absurd place filled with humor, action, and romance.

My Review


When I started reading Magno girl I wasn't completely grabbed, at least not until half way through it and even then I still felt this sort of detachment towards the characters while I was reading. But don't get me wrong I did enjoy reading Magno Girl, it was a  quick and fun read. It sort of read like a comic book just without pictures and a bit childish but that's exactly the kind of read that I was looking for.

Magnolia doesn't have it easy especially being a girl superhero, no one takes her seriously and even though she's just trying to help she's completely ignored and treated badly by the police in the beginning. Which just made her even more determined and I liked that about her, she was independent and strong though not without flaws. I especially liked how she had to deal with family drama just like the rest of humanity. 

As for her romance with her boyfriend Ron it was okay but I just wasn't really feeling it and to be honest I didn't really like reading through Ron's pov. Some of his thoughts were really off putting and unnecessary but that's probaly just me. And although there is a lot of action going on, I never felt like she or Ron were in any real danger so I wasn't really at the edge of my seat.


Overall, Magno Girl is a quick adventurous read with a great kick ass superhero  to keep you entertained.
