I have to admit--I just completely fell in love with this one:
Molly Hurford's SHRED GIRLS has a pitch-perfect MG voice and features a young comic book junkie who learns, over the course of the summer, that perhaps the real-life adventures on a bike just might be even cooler than the adventures found on the panels and pages of her much-loved comics.

Violet Lemay's illustrations are also fantastic:

And I love the asides--the "Training Log" and "Superhero Tips" that often wrap up chapters:

A great under-the-tree read this summer. Would be a perfect match for young readers who often gravitate toward illustrated works. Also a solid choice for classroom libraries. I'm betting teachers will have to create a waiting list for this one!
