School Library Journal Starred Review
Gr 7 Up Genie Lo is settling into her powers as the Ruyi Jingu Bang, trying to be an effective Great Divine Guardian of California, and balancing it all with school, family, and friends. Her plans for college always seemed set in stone, but a health scare with her mom puts her family's precarious financial situation in stark relief. The uncertainty causes rifts in her romantic relationship with her boyfriend Quentin (who is the Monkey King Sun Wukong). Despite the tension, they still have to work together because a ball of demonic qi is tearing through the planes of existence and the Jade Emperor is nowhere to be found. When Genie takes a side in the battle for the next King of Heaven, she, Quentin, Guanyin, and even Erlan Shang are on a new adventure to save humanity. The politics of the gods, criticism of Silicon Valley VC funding, college parties, and the uncertainty of the future on this plane of existence (plus all the others) are all explored with Genie's hilarious and biting voiceespecially when she's at her most vulnerable. VERDICT Readers who have been waiting for more Genie will not be disappointed. A worthy sequel. Jennifer Rothschild, Arlington County Public Libraries, VA

The fate of the heavens is at stake in this hilarious and highly-anticipated sequel to the The Epic Crush of Genie Lo Genie Lo thought she was busy protecting the Bay Area from demons. But now, as a Heaven- appointed Guardian, even the well-being of demons is her responsibility--and their numbers are multiplying. Guanyin and Quentin are doing their best to help; but what they really need is for the Jade Emperor to get off his butt and deal with the crisis. While he's AWOL, Genie nominates Guanyin to fill in his shoes, unaware that the role will go to the god who can defeat a mysterious threat to the supernatural order. Along with a few other contenders for the throne, including a former enemy, Genie and her friends embark on a Heavenly quest to an in-between world. But when faced with true danger, the group realizes that what will save the universe this time is sacrifice, not strength.
