Review

Rating: 7

Fiver ordinary kids going to college in Madison, Wisconsin, wake up after a party and discover they each have superpowers. Unlike other stories, they’re the only ones of their kind and have to make it up as they go. It makes for a funny and rather achingly honest book that touches much more than many comic books and comic book novelizations about what it means to have a secret identity. In style and theme, it’s somewhere between jPod by Douglas Coupland and Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman. Definitely worth a read.
