Summary from Goodreads:


At Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s camp for hard-core lady-types, things are not what they seem. Three-eyed foxes. Secret caves. Anagrams. Luckily, Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are five rad, butt-kicking best pals determined to have an awesome summer together… And they’re not gonna let a magical quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! The mystery keeps getting bigger, and it all begins here.


  • So fun!
  • I love how the story was really female dominated.
  • I love how all the girls were strong women yet they still sometimes needed help. It’s always a good reminder that those can go together.
  • It was cool that we got a big, diverse cast. The downside is I didn’t feel like I knew anyone that well because of how little ‘time’ we actually spent with each girl. Hopefully we get to know them better in future comics!
  • Because RA (reader’s advisory) is always on the back of my mind, I’d say this is a great pick for fans of Adventure Time.

The bottom line? Fun comic for everyone!
