Being a teenage girl is hard enough, but for DeDe Christopher, it is proving impossible.
In addition to cliques, books, and boys, she has to worry about capes, apes, and aliens. Last year, DeDe discovered that she possessed fantastic abilities that were strangely similar to those of a comic book character named SkyBoy.
With the help of her best friend Jason, a self-professed comic geek, DeDe accepted her legacy and became Sky Girl. Now, DeDe must learn what it means to be a heroine as Sky Girl faces the all too real enemies and allies of SkyBoy, including the clever Quizmaster, the beautiful Penny Pound, the enigmatic Jersey Devil, and the magical MissTick.
DeDe must also face personal challenges as she discovers the secrets of her late father and his connection to Skyboy–secrets that will affect Sky Girl’s destiny.

Q: Do you tend to base your characters on real people or are they totally from your imagination?
A: It’s interesting how many people I went to school with say to me that they have figured out that, “Nicole is so and so, or Jason is based on so and so.” Popular theories are that DeDe is based on an ex-girlfriend from high school and that Jason is based on me.
As the Pages Turn Interview
Mr. Sergi, keep up the good work. I was thoroughly entertained and had no problems giving this book to my nine year-old daughter who also loved the book.
At the end of the day, Sky Girl and the Superheroic Adventures, and the character of Sky Girl is the culmination of reading far too many great comics, finding far too few strong female characters and loving my daughter just enough. I would like to thank you for letting to talk about the secret origin of Sky Girl.
The Story Behind the Book
Sky Girl and the Superheroic Adventures is a fun, supersonic, high-flying, good time!

Overall I really enjoyed the characters in this story and with the twist the author provided at the end he has certainly left me wanting to read the next book in the series!
If you have a young girl in the house, like 12 to 16, I think this book will go over eally super. It is light on violence and bad words. It also has some really good quality values that seep through and hopefully stick with your child and help guide them in real life.
