Never Fear, Meena’s Here! is the second book in the Meena Series. Meena finds a rainbow washer on the ground right before she saves a little girl from being hit by a car and is sure the “rainbow ring” has given her super powers. She is determined to find out what other powers the ring gives her- mind control, the ability to fly, super speed? She drives her best friend away with her self obsession with being super and is not kind to her little sister. But at the heart of this story is a young girl who is dealing with the fact she has been diagnosed with epilepsy and needs to take medication. It makes her feel weak and out of control. She decides the best way to gain control is by being a superhero. In the end Meena learns how to be an everyday human hero by being kind. 📚 ❤️ Look for this book when it is released on March 24, 2020. For ages 8-12.
