Grade 6-9–Former juvenile delinquent Rachel Buchanan would much rather have a hamburger and hit the beach than spend the day in a dusty library researching the location of ancient artifacts. But when you are a spy-school student and a reincarnated goddess–like it or not–duty doesn't just call, it insists. In this installment in the series, Rachel and her friends trek to Brazil to find a set of Roman artifacts before Rachel's arch-nemesis, who thinks he's the reincarnation of the bull god Mithras, can gather them and perform a mysterious ritual. Before she can save the world, though, the young woman must come to terms with who she is, an issue that even teens without superpowers can understand. The script is peppered with witty dialogue and realistic conflict between the teen heroes and the villains, and Rainbow Buddy's black-and-white manga-style panels manage to stay just this side of too cute. A thoroughly American comic tale that fits seamlessly into a manga telling.–Beth Gallego, Los Angeles Public Library END
