Really hope that there is a sequel.
A mite misleading since the description suggests they're heroes who are accused of being villains because of an unfortunate incident with the sidekick of another hero.
Looking forward to the sequel as it might explain better the relationship between the heroes and villains because from what I've read so far they should have been caught before the end of the first book and got away only because the adult heroes were busy attending a conference instead of their so-called vocation.
Give this series a look, its worth the price!
Penny is the daughter of two famous superheroes. So is her best middle school friend, Claire. Pal Ray isn't technically a superhero child, but he's the naturally smartest guy around. They live in a world in which the children of superheroes usually manifest superpowers, but when the powers manifest and what form they take is always uncertain.
So, we have Penny and Claire anxiously waiting to see if they will have powers, what those powers might be, and when those powers will show up. Sympathetic, and nursing crushes, Ray is standing by.
All three assume they will be good guys. When the powers show up, though, they find themselves, through a series of unlikely events, playing the role of villains. Penny, and sidekicks Claire and Ray, have to struggle with the fact that villainy is more complicated, and possibly more fun, than they ever imagined. Which way will each turn?
A couple of things. First off, the whole good guy/bad guy struggle is a lot more nuanced and interesting than any summary would suggest. These are solid kids coming to grips with the fact that the world is complicated. Second, this is one of the few YA superhero books I've seen in which the lead characters are interesting, self-aware, fairly realistic, and articulate. They are funny; they understand themselves and each other; they have meaningful conversations; they are good and loyal friends to each other; they actually grow and develop as characters in a fashion that is engaging and sometimes unexpected.
The book is long, but doesn't feel padded. You are a full third of the way through before the whole villainy issue even arises.Read more ›
What it is, is a very good and enjoyable book with humour, good characters, 'believable' behaviour and enough of a take on Superhero/Supervillany Comic book stories to make it work.
Fans of comic books will appreciate it, people who like innovative story lines will like it, people who like SF will like it.
Once I started on it I couldn't stop reading it and YES this seriously deserves a sequel or two.
