The Supervillain and Me

320p. Feiwel & Friends/Swoon Reads. Jul. 2018. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781250154354.
Gr 7 Up—Abby's father is the mayor of Morriston, and her brother is a superhero. Being born with powers is now commonplace in the city, and so is criminal activity. But Abby had never been interested in any of that until a masked villain named Iron Phantom saves her from an attacker and subsequently enlists her help in stopping a nefarious conspiracy. As Abby unravels this threat, she learns that the lines between good and evil are blurrier than she ever could have thought. Underneath all of the action and intrigue of this adventure lies an interesting premise: living amongst superheroes from the point of view of the ordinary and powerless. Banas adeptly keeps readers guessing about Iron Phantom's identity and provides plenty of romantic tension, which will satisfy even die-hard fans of the genre.
VERDICT Recommended as an additional purchase where adventurous romances are popular.
