    One thought on “Supergirl Mixtapes”

    1. I read this book for a challenge in one of my groups. I loved the summary. I absolutely loved the cover with the tape on it, but unfortunately the book just wasn't for me. I hope others out there enjoy it more than me and I did like it somewhat but it just mostly wasn't my thing. I liked Maria and her grandmother and a friend that would send her mixed tapes. Oh, to be able to still make mixed tapes! A lot of the other stuff in the book was just okay. Fin

    2. I have mixed feelings about this book. I flew through it. The story is interesting and I cared about the main character, Maria, almost right from the word go. I wanted to know what had sent her fleeing from South Carolina, I wanted to know more about her childhood and how the time around her parents divorce went down, and I really wanted to see how she was going to pull it all together. Then I finished the book and I was surprised at how much I found myself NOT liking the book, and I couldn't fi [...]

    3. When I first heard of Supergirl Mixtapes I knew that I had to read it as soon as possible. It takes place in the 90’s and there’s a lot of focus on music. Those are two elements that I adore in any book. So I was very excited. Then I started to hear some very mixed opinions about the book. I’ll admit that I kept moving it down on my TBR after that. Finally, I decided to give it a chance…and I kind of loved it.I can see where some readers had issues with it, but I was pretty much hooked f [...]

    4. 3.5 definitivamente.Supergirl Mixtapes es uno de esos libros que te lees en una sentada, de esos que son agradables de leer un domingo lluvioso con una taza de chocolate al lado.El personaje de Maria siempre viviò con su padre en un pequeño pueblo, sin su madre. Pero eso cambia, tiene que pasar un rato con ella en NY. Vemos a Maria maravillandose por la ciudad, pero extrañando las pequeñas cosas del lugar donde ha vivido. De regreso en su pueblo natal, no puede evitar notar que hay muchas co [...]

    5. Maria has led a safe life so far. She doesn't know why her mother up and left when she was younger, but she knows she has a reliable, dependable dad. When she is finally allowed to live with her mother, Maria decides to use her newfound freedom to the fullest. With her mother there, but still acting a little odd and a little absent, Maria does not have any guidance. Her life with her mother is the majority of the story. Maria meets her mother's very young and very good-looking boyfriend as well [...]

    6. Everything that glitters isn't gold. I kept thinking about this phrase as the story unfolded. It starts off with Maria wanted to see her mother and great away from South Carolina, as It continued secrets are revealed and the illusion of what she wanted and imagined was shattered. Maria ended up having to do what she does back at home, which was taking care of what was going on around her. She finally sees what's going on and realizes that she has to go back to SC, and away from her time bomb of [...]

    7. Maria was born in New York City but moved to South Carolina when she was two. Her artist mother headed back to NYC when Maria was four. Since then Maria has been surrounded by her father and her grandmother and their views of how awful her mother was.After a rough breakup with Brian, Maria convinces her father she should move to NYC and get to know her mother. Her grandmother pulls some strings and invests considerable money to get Maria enrolled in a fancy private school, and Maria is on her wa [...]

    8. When I decided to read this book i think that i was expecting something a little bit more fun and happy. Seriously, got it very wrong, Maria is one messed up teen and her life is also messed up. this isn't a happy musical book at all, it's grungy and grimy and whilst I did like it I may not have chosen to read it at the time that I did if I'd known that. There isn't a real plot to it, it's really just a story of Maria's self-discovery.I really liked the characters in this book, Maria was very be [...]

    9. In Supergirl Mixtapes, we meet Maria, a young girl who has decided to move to New York City to be with her mother who she hasn't lived with for a long time. She was bored with her old town and was sure New York would bring great things to her life- even though her mother has never been very responsible and didn't help raise her. I was excited about starting this one. The cover with the cassette on it is very cute and gives off a fun vibe.I have mixed feelings about this book, though. I liked a l [...]

    10. Supergirl Mixtapes is about 16 year old Maria and he want for something more. She lives in a small town in South Carolina with her dad but where she really wants to be is with her mom in New York City. Her dad reluctantly lets her go to visit her mom. Maria thinks she will find new and exciting adventures in NYC. Upon arrival she starts a new private school, travels the city, and learns all about the music scene. Maria soon finds out that NYC is not all that it is cracked up to be through other [...]

    11. This is another knock-out of a book by Meagan Brothers, following on the also terrific Debbie Harry Sings in French. Maria is younger here, and her life with her fun, troubled mother in 90's Manhattan is gorgeously, at times heart-breakingly, portrayed. Supergirl Mixtapes is a highly original coming of age story, one that is funny, tender, and very real. You can't skim it, and the writing is so good you don't want to. I highly recommend both of these truly outstanding, music-filled books.

    12. This novel is a quick read for folks interested in music, New York City or mother-daughter themes. Maria is a likable, independent young woman who tells a lot of lies while trying to find happiness living with her drug-addicted mother. Author Meagan Brothers gives lots of love to pre-Giuliani New York, the downtown punk scene, vinyl and Patti Smith.

    13. This book was an incredible ride! It left me breathless.Check out my full review at Into the Mystic

    14. it is amazing Meagan show how most teen feel when they haven't see their mom or dad in a while i can relate sort of but i understand what she is saying i can't wait for a sequel yay

    15. Maria can’t wait to escape from her small southern hometown. Things have been going downhill for a while, and Maria is starting to feel like everyone she could count on is going away. She feels like she needs to get out of there too, so her father’s permission to visit her estranged mother in New York City is a blessing. And so what if the big city is a little scary and maybe a little too much for Maria to handle on her own? She would gladly brave the subways ad busy streets in order to see [...]

    16. My Thoughts: Honestly, I wanted to love Supergirl Mixtapes. The cover alone suggests it would be unique. The plot sounds like it would be awesome. And its sprinkled with music, big win.We are introduced to Maria who lives with her father in a small southern town. Her mother has never really been around. Until now. She goes off to New York to live with her mother for a while. While in New York, Maria is trying to navigate the streets while trying to figure out where exactly she belongs. Back in h [...]

    17. From my blog Auntie Spinelli ReadsI gave this book 2 stars (it was ok) even though it wasn't ok for me because I didn't really like it at all. But there wasn't anything fundamentally wrong with it except for the simple fact that it just wasn't for me. There was pretty much nothing happening for the first 3/4 of the book except a bunch of music jargon - all stuff about bands/singers I either a) don't like, b) don't give an ass rat's about, or c) have never even heard of. So all the talk about mus [...]

    18. Meagan's books are a learning experience for me, as I'm quite a ways from being a young teen, and my young generation was a good 30 years prior to hers. However, there's a commonality to every generation, in that teen years are a confusing, frequently rough and tumble learning ground, and some of those biggest struggles are with your own sense of self.That being said, it's a pleasure to dive into her words and discover that which is both familiar (in feelings) and alien (fashion, music and art t [...]

    19. Debbie Harry Sings in French is one of my favorite teen books and the author does a great job following that up with Supergirl Mixtapes, a story about Maria, a girl who goes off to NYC to live with her mother whom she hasn't seen in years. What I most adore about this book is that it takes place in the 90s, when I was a teen, so I got to relive some of my teen agnst through it. I'm a bit weirded out that this, technically, could be considered historical fiction. I do realize that the 80s just ex [...]

    20. A deeper and more nuanced novel than I expected from the cutesy cover. I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting, but it definitely wasn't this: a nostalgic look at New York in the nineties, an older soundtrack, an isolated teen with a self-injury-branded-as-suicide-attempt past that doesn't really have an impact on her present state of mind, a long overdue reunion with a mother who acts like a teenager but who isn't a villain, and said mother's 22-year-old boyfriend, which is exactly as much fu [...]

    21. This one just wasn’t for me I think. I couldn’t connect with the characters or the story itself. I did enjoy the era the book was set in around 1995 (or maybe a bit later) and also the setting, New York. Like I always say, I like reading books before cell phones and all of this technology came along.I kept reading because I was curious and I was waiting for a couple of secrets to be revealed. I ended up finishing the book feeling unfulfilled…I didn’t like the ending. I was kind of upset [...]

    22. Meagan Brothers' newest YA title will not disappoint. Maria leaves her father to go live with her mother in NYC. As if the transition from South Carolina to New York is not enough, she realizes that life with her free spirit mother is one of enormous ups and downs. Struggling to get her own life together, armed with warnings of family and friends, Maria learns that her mother's drug problem is one that just might not ever turn around. A realistic read that is not didactic and will speak to teens [...]

    23. What a great follow up to Debby Harry Sings in French, which I loved. Supergirl Mixtapes is a quick read; but, don't let that fool you. It has all the good stuff: some angst, misplaced affection, adventure, divorced parents, mental illness and music! The music threaded effortlessly throughout the novel keeps the pace moving. The author sets the scene perfectly. After reading this book, you are a lot closer to living through the 90s in New York City.

    24. I enjoyed every minute of Brothers' second novel! Not only was it a love letter to New York city, it's an interesting look at the music scene in the 90's. Maria is a strong and likable main character, level-headed and a little insecure at the same time, and infinitely relatable. I will definitely be recommending "Supergirl Mixtapes" to teens and adults!

    26. I liked this book (and loved the cover), particularly because I was a college student in the 1990s and am familiar with the bands mentioned. I liked the main character and her journey, although the ending felt strangely abrupt.

    27. Good story, kept me reading. I liked all the music woven throughout the story--the songs, the groups, the instruments, the tapes. What's with all the bad mothers lately?
