Please Don’t Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon by Richard Roberts

The Inscrutable Machine are sent into outer space by the Spider. There they discover people living (and fighting) on the moons of Jupiter. Penny continues to come to terms with being a supervillain and what her powers want her to create while also trying to save the people from the Puppeteers and Meat Puppets.

I loved the first Don’t Tell My Parents book, but this one just wasn’t very good. It often droned on and on needlessly. Sometimes the descriptions of the Puppeteers and Meat Puppets were rather graphic and disgusting (they gave my ten-year-old nightmares). I mostly found myself bored while reading Please Don’t Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon and hoping the end would hurry up. It was just such a disappointment after the first book. I don’t recommend reading it.
