Double Down

Lois Lane has settled in to her new school. She has friends, for maybe the first time in her life. She has a job that challenges her. And her friendship is growing with SmallvilleGuy, her online maybe-more-than-a-friend. But when her friend Maddy's twin collapses in a part of town she never should've been in, Lois finds herself embroiled in a dangerous mystery that brings her closer to the dirty underbelly of Metropolis.

Booklist Online - Debbie Carton

"Bond maintains the rapid-fire pace, witty banter, and clever allusions that made Fallout (2015) a winner, at the same time exploring thought-provoking ethical issues through Lois’ whip-smart and sometimes socially awkward persona. Wonderful details abound, including the usage of a clippings file—a nice touch in the age of Internet research. Superhero fans wishing for a fuller backstory on Superman’s love interest will find it hard to wait for the sequel, which seems like a sure thing." - Booklist Online

"Gwenda Bond takes everything that fans loved about that book and throws even more entertainment into its sequel, Lois Lane: Double Down. Hard-nosed investigation of nefarious dealings, sprinkled with a dash of shadowy criminals? Check...And even though I know what lies in store for Lois as an adult, even though I know who SmallvilleGuy will turn out to be, the way Bond writes their interactions is a real treat." - Fantasy Literature

"10 Books to Read While Waiting for Your Favorite TV Shows to Come Back If you love Supergirl, read Double Down by Gwenda Bond. Who doesn’t love a good leading lady, especially one of the crime-fighting variety?

Book Links, "Gaming and Coding Unlocked" - Kathleen McBroom

"Lois Lane, reimagined as a high-school reporter, was first introduced in Fallout (2015). In book two, Lois has finally made some real friends (previously she only had her online gaming buddy, Smallville Guy). When a friend collapses in a shady part of town, Lois is caught up in a dark, dangerous mystery." - Book Links, "Gaming and Coding Unlocked"

Kirkus Reviews

"STARRED REVIEW! [Bond] fills this adventure with the Golden Age sci-fi weirdness that permeated the comic books of the 1930s and '40s. The three mysteries dovetail together nicely in the end, with a few bread crumbs leading toward the next installment. . . .In a sea of series that keep the characters status quo and rehash the same mysteries with different names and doodads, this is a godsend. A must read for comics fans and mystery enthusiasts alike." - Kirkus Reviews
