The Ultra Violets by Sophie Bell
Meet four best friends. They’re not super…yet.
IRIS: Visionary, artist, leader--the glitter-glue that holds the group together.
CHERI: A girly-girl on platform roller-skates who's never met a rescue puppy she didn’t immediately-and-madly love.
SCARLET: Short enough that you won’t see her sneaking up behind you. Freckled enough that you might mistake her for innocent. But look out! She can pants a bully faster than you can say O-M-Jeepers!
OPALINE: Loveable, huggable, supershy, sweet as pie…or is she?
And introducing CANDACE. Not just any babysitter—she's a Teen Genius, thankyouverymuch! What happens when four best friends find themselves splattered with mysterious purple goo during a routine sleepover? Iris, Cheri, Scarlet and Opaline are about to become…THE ULTRA-VIOLETS!
"'Grape googly moogly,' Scarlet muttered, spotting the pastel bulldog.
'Iris, did you just color in Cheri's rent-a-puppy?' Opal murmured.
Iris felt dizzy, even a little sick, like some invisible wave had knocked the breath out of her. But she was beginning to get the hang of this color-changing thing. 'Yes,' she whispered back, 'though I was trying for deep purple!'"
