This book found its way to me at exactly the right time. I've found myself gravitating more toward comedies and happy books/television, while leaving the more violent and dramatic stuff behind (with the exception of The Walking Dead, of course! ). So when I had the opportunity to read something about superheroes taking down the bad guys while trying to survive the social battle that calls itself highschool, I was totally up for it. A fun, positive adventure story was exactly what I wanted, and exactly what I got.
Wright did an amazing job of letting each character have their own voice. Each time the reader was thrown into the head of another character, they would have been able to tell where they were without reading the names. That isn't easy to do, let me tell you.
I thought the teen experience was very authentic. Sometimes books can sound as if the author is writing as they would imagine a teenager would sound like. Not here. Each character and their relationships with others developed naturally, whether it be with their parents or with a love interest.
I am excited to see what's next for Vada, Orion and Eden.
