In a high school science class, Lois Lane must deal with some bad chemistry. . .
This is an official teaser short story for the young adult novel LOIS LANE: FALLOUT that takes place before Lois moves to Metropolis.
Rating: 4 1/2 stars
Trouble seems to follow Lois Lane no matter where she goes. While working on her project in chemistry class, Lois' curiosity (or should I say nosiness) found her in the middle of the relationship between two of her classmates, Mike and Sophie. The couple were in the process of breaking up but Sophie couldn't get Mike to understand that things just were not working out between them. And since they were lab partners she also needed him to help her in completing their project.
However, Mike still believing that there was still a chance for him and Sophie came up with a plan to not only get Sophie's attention but also as a way to get a good grade for their project.
The mystery for this had Lois trying to figure out what Mike was up to and then trying to figure out how to stop it. This story has a nice blend of drama and humor and despite being a short story it's very well-written and enjoyable to read.
As with the other short story, the author did a good job with Lois Lane, her personality and actions in this story are spot on. These short stories do exactly what they are meant to do, get the reader interested in reading the complete story Lois Lane: Fallout, which I plan to start reading sometime real soon.
