A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Ben Hatke brings back our intrepid space heroine for another delightful sci-fi/fantasy adventure. Zita is determined to find her way home to earth, following the events of the first book. But things are never simple, and certainly never easy, in space.

Zita's exploits from her first adventure have made her an intergalactic megastar! But she's about to find out that fame doesn't come without a price. And who can you trust when your true self is being eclipsed by your public persona, and you've got a robot doppelganger wreaking havoc . . . while wearing your face?

Still, if anyone can find their way through this intractible mess of mistaken identity and alien invaders, it's the indomitable Zita, in Legends of Zita the Spacegirl.

Legends of Zita the Spacegirl is one of Kirkus Reviews' Best Children's Books of 2012.

Legends of Zita the Spacegirl is Ben Hatke's second comic book about a gutsy gal who just happens to be lost in the universe. Zita has already saved the planet Scriptorus and is now on a publicity tour, hopping from world to world to shake hands and answer questions from all sorts of alien beings.

This was my favourite of the three books. Zita is not your typical hero who must do everything alone and be ever in the spotlight. She has brilliant companions and like many people is not sure who to trust when she finds herself in trouble.

Fame has its drawbacks. Over-exaggeration, die-hard fans, and no freedom. Worse off, Zita has been named a public enemy, causing her to go on the run. In the previous volume, it was thanks to the friends she made that she survived in this new and strange environment, but even these are lost. Without them, Zita is in trouble.

In the face of this adversity, Zita grows, further stepping into the shoes of a hero, despite her wish to just go home. She also makes new friends, who assist her along the way.

Volume Two is just as colourful and fun as the first, with more whimsical aliens, and introductions to several new secondary characters. By the end there is also a promise of more to come.
