Synopsis: After an epic battle with space piranhas, Rocket, Groot, and a highly intelligent tape dispenser named Veronica find themselves stranded on a planet without a ship, food, or water. This is a planet that is covered entirely by a strip mall, the shops of which contain killer toilets. Why I picked it up: I loved Guardians of the Galaxy and I was excited to find out that there was a middle grade novel that followed the characters. Why I finished it: This book has a little bit of everything: action, drama, suspense, humor, and awesome doodles drawn by a genetically modified woodland creature and a giant tree whose entire vocabulary consists of three words. I loved that the proprietors of the shops on Planet Strip Mall all have a sort of borderline creepy quality even before the reader understands just how evil and insistent they are. And yet, as battle worn as our heroes become, they still maintain their snarky personalities that some older readers will know carried over from the film. Angleberger has done a fantastic job adapting the characters for the middle school audience and the fact that he threw in a tape dispense because he could makes the story that much more awesome.
