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.
