Squirrel Girl is BACK in an all-new adventure and things are about to get . . . hairy. Thanks to Squirrel Girl, Ana Sofia, and the Squirrel Scouts, the crime rate in New Jersey is at an all time low. It makes for safer streets but also bored-er squirrels. That's why it's super exciting when Doreen's school announces a new mall is being built right next to their town. Mmmm . . . Doreen can smell the soft pretzels now. The corporation building mall has also announced that there will be a competition to choose the mall's mascot. Because malls need mascots?Anyway, Doreen's school will be voting for a cat and the neighboring school will be voting for a dog. As the relationship starts to unravel between the two towns, Squirrel Girl and her friends suspect something more sinister is at work. With the help of old friends like Ana Sofia, Tippy Toe, and The Mighty Thor as well as some surprising new ones, Squirrel Girl will squash a villainous plot and save everyone.The unbeatable Squirrel Girl is ready for more nuts AND more butts! Are you?...

2 Fuzzy, 2 Furious (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl novels #2) Reviews
Just freaking delightful. Everything I expect from Squirrel Girl along with a wonderfully written mexican-american deaf character, Ana Sofía. In this sequel Thor is now a unofficial member of the Arcos Romero family. They call him tío and Ana Sofía's mother makes him homemade socks. Probably one of the best parts of the book. The overall arc is about nefarious doings during the launch of a new mall in Shady Oaks/Listless Pines. Is something more sinister causing the uptick in fighting and aggres ...more
While I think the first book may be a little bit better I'm really glad there is a sequel to this series. It's a lot of fun. Even though it's made for middle schoolers my adult self enjoyed it.
I love these Squirrel Girl books SO MUCH. The tie-ins with the Marvel universe, the awkward 14-year-old best friendship moments, the unflappable confidence and sweetness of Doreen Green, the strangely 1920s reporter jargon that makes up the squirrel language, the relevant plot lines (most of this one hinged on evil forces using carefully planted internet comments to drive groups apart and make them more hostile OMG)...my boys love them absolutely as much as I did, and this warms me to my core.
You can't say Shannon Hale doesn't take notes. This middle-grade sequel comes with less squirrel chapters and footnotes and more superhero texting antics than the first installment and is a much better book because of it. Unlike most of these tie-ins, the teen angle doesn't feel forced or like the author took a regular book and swapped in some comic book names at the last minute.
And, really, how can you hate on a story where Hydra opens a mall?
Objectively maybe 4* but I have no critical perspective when it comes to these books. Any book that induces spit-take laughter and so many urges to share best quotes gets 5*.

Review: This book is middle grade level but Squirrel Girl is so delightful that that didn't deter me. Really all it mea ...more
Still so cute and lovely and STILL MAKES ME DESPERATELY WISH ANA SOFIA WAS IN THE COMICS!! I mean she even started teaching Doreen about computers and said maybe they could both study it at the same college? So please tell me Ana Sofia is safe at some other college and that’s the only reason she’s not in the comics k thx
Also Thor is amazing in this, and of course, all of the tests from the other Avengers.
Another stellar novelisation of middle-school aged Squirrel Girl. Her friend Ana Sofia is Mexican-American and part of the deaf community. The signing and inclusion even of "tail sign" with teh squirrels is heart-warmingly inclusive. As always; Squirrel Girl is just amazing: proportional strength of a human-sized squirrel and capable of punching anyone evil out of the urge to be evil...but yet she always tries to default to kindness first which; along with the humor, is one of the great reasons ...more
