But when mysterious invaders menace the town of Oyster Cove and take both Amanda and Emily's mothers captive, Amanda unexpectedly develops amazing insectile powers!

"Readers will recognize the ugly social-clique dynamics depicted here and will enjoy the irony of Amanda’s reclamation of the once-taunting name 'Bug Girl.' Stylized, cartoonish line drawings are featured on many pages, complementing the jazzy, futuristic design, and they match the novel’s playful tone well.... A clear setup at the end suggests there will be more to come for this science-minded protagonist." — Kirkus Reviews
