Part of the Lightning Girl series
The second book in a laugh-out-loud, high-voltage, action-packed adventure series from hugely popular TV personality, Alesha Dixon. The first book was a TOP 5 FICTION BESTSELLER. Aurora Beam is finding this saving-the-world lark isn't all its cracked up to be. World-famous overnight after she foiled the Blackout Burglar's plot to steal a precious stone, she's living in the full glare of the media's flash bulbs: everyone wants a piece of the coolest new superhero in town. When she attends a global gathering of superheroes, will she find support from new friends who know exactly what she's going through? Or will there be rivalries and sabotage to deal with? And what on earth is Grandma Beam - who Aurora thought was running a home for retired alpacas deep in the countryside - doing turning up at this top-secret summit? Laughs on every page fantastically funny illustrations throughout by James Lancett Alesha is one of the judges on Britain's Got Talent Alesha Dixon says: My inspiration to create a superhero called Lightning Girl began with wanting my young daughter to feel empowered. It's been a dream to create a strong role model that any child can look up to - I want my readers to see themselves in Aurora, who is dealing with trouble at home and trouble at school alongside her new powers. I also have a love of precious stones and their healing properties; I have always been fascinated with their spectacular colours and the positive energy that they bring. As human beings we are always searching for something greater within ourselves and a deeper meaning to life and it's my belief that we all have a light within us that can affect change and bring good to the world... we just have to harness it! :) Enter Aurora Beam!
