Jamie Baker, the only girl in the world with superpowers, has now accepted who she is and learned to control her power. Not to mention she has the best boyfriend on the planet. Life is finally looking good. But the day she witnesses an accident and decides not to save the guy out of fear of being exposed, she realizes that simply being Jamie Baker isn't enough. After seeing Jamie so wrecked with guilt, the ever-helpful Ryan Miller decides it's time to make all of his fantasies about turning his girlfriend into an honest-to-goodness superhero become a reality. Of course, coming up with a decent Super Name and fending off all of Ryan's attempts to get her into spandex aren't the only problems Jamie faces. The more her alter ego starts to make headlines, the harder it becomes for Jamie to hide her extracurricular activities from her best friend, the government, radical scientists, and the mysterious new guy who is determined to steal her from her boyfriend.
Five Boundless Stars
More Than Jamie Baker, starts off where the first left off. Jamie now in College with her Best Friend Becky and her Boyfriend Ryan. Things seem fairly normal. Than a terrible accident occurs and things start to unravel.
I love this series for many reasons. One, I love Jamie and her powers. I love the fact that she’s never asked for this to happen to her but she’s not weak. She’s strong. She doesn’t back down and she’ll tell you how it is. She really doesn’t have much of a filter. Two, her and Ryan together is just adorable. Now, I did feel that it was written over and over about how they were perfect for each other. They were but I don’t think I needed to hear it over and over again. But then I felt like something horrible was going to happen between them. Like these were moments that we should treasure of them together. Three, I love what she does for her friends and family. She’s protective of people she even barely knows.
Jamie never asked to be a superhero. But I did love how she found how great it was to help those who needed her. There was a lot of action, heartbreaking moments, danger, and just pure love. Oram, really is an amazing writer and I find that her characters were destined to make an impact on the reader.
There were a couple new characters that were introduced. All I can say one is an ultimate douche canoe and more like a toddler than a grown boy. gah! and the ending. I’m like noooooooo… So of course I’m going to read the third in the series.
Overall, I give this book Five Boundless Stars.. On to Remember Jamie Baker <3
