Blog Tour: Book Review: The Samantha Granger Experiment: Fused by Kari Lee Townsend

The Samantha Granger Experiment: FUSED by Kari Lee Townsend:
After Sam is fused with her cell phone, she’s ready to conquer the world! Or at least the 8th grade…
When Samantha Granger touches a meteor while talking on her cell phone, her life is changed forever: her body now has all the capabilities of her phone (GPS, phone, text, camera). She secretly calls herself a “Digital Diva” as she rushes to answer emergency calls. But will her identity be discovered when sparks fly (literally!) between her and Trevor, her dreamy crush? Samantha has to get a handle on her abilities and quick, because when Sam gets kidnapped and the entire town is in danger, she is the only one who can save them.

I love the premise of Fused.  After touching a meteor Samantha and her high tech phone are fused together as one.  Suddenly she has instant access to the Internet and is able to use it to her advantage whether on the soccer field or fighting criminals.  Unfortunately she doesn’t have complete control over her powers.

This is a fun light hearted book with lots of humor in it.  Not laugh out loud funny but still fun to read.  The book moved along really quickly leaving some plot holes and storylines that I wish had been developed a little more. There were several things about this story that were not full explained making this book a little too unbelievable.

This is targeted at a middle grade audience that I’m sure children ages 9-12 will enjoy this book.

Content: Clean but has quite a few OMGs.
