A superhero origin story. A trans teen taking on the mantle of a superhero despite crippling self doubt and anxiety.
I couldn’t put down this story. The violence is quite high, but the gore is minimal, and the reader isn’t given much time to process it, much the same way that many YA stories have been written. (I’m looking at you Hunger Games.) The key is survival, and as a reader I’m rooting for Riley and Max the whole time.
