Avani has found the one place in the universe where she fits in: Star Scouts. The League of Lasers is the second volume of this action-packed graphic novel series by Mike Lawrence.

During a troop meeting, a robot messenger delivers Avani some exciting news: she has been invited to join a secret society of elite scouts known as the League of Lasers. She is eager to join their ranks, but first she has to survive her initiation challenge.

Stranded on an uncharted planet, Avani must contend with the methane atmosphere, hostile frog-like inhabitants, and her dwindling supplies of food and water. But even worse: her arch nemesis, Pam, is stranded there, too.

Praise For Star Scouts: The League of Lasers

"Lawrence's spreads are bright and dynamic, and most of the book's panels are drawn at eye level, allowing readers to strongly identify with the gumptious dark-skinned protagonist... An entertaining romp for graphic-novel, science-fiction, and adventure-story readers alike." —Kirkus Reviews
