I'm not even sure what happened. All I know is that she's one of my least favorite rangers - sorry? Or I'm not? - but this had a color your own cover version, so, bam, snagged it.
It's actually more fun, and made me care far more for the character; Kimberly, on her own, without her ranger powers, has to save her mother, father, and the town they're now living in - in France *swoon, yeah, that helped* - which has been apparently overrun by monsters.
I found her less annoying on her own, and de-powered. Also more down to Earth: she was taking care of herself, and doing her best not to worry about her friends, and former superhero partners, while also caring about what happened to everyone in this town.
Fun, and I might just check out the rest of the series eventually. When I have more time than I do now.
