Blurb (from Goodreads):
Kenna is tired of being "normal." The only thing special about her is that she's isn't special at all. Which is frustrating when you're constantly surrounded by superheroes. Her best friend, her ex-boyfriend, practically everyone she knows has some talent or power. Sure, Kenna's smart and independent, but as an ordinary girl in an extraordinary world, it's hard not to feel inferior.
So when three villains break into the lab where she interns, Kenna refuses to be a victim. She stands her ground. She's not about to let criminals steal the research that will make her extraordinary too.
But in the heat of battle, secrets are spilled and one of the villains saves her life. Twice. Suddenly, everything Kenna thought she knew about good and evil, heroes and villains is upended. And to protect her life and those she loves, she must team up with her sworn enemies on a mission that will redefine what it means to be powerful and powerless...
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“Mom might be working on a way to neutralize villain powers and amplify hero ones, but I’m working on a way to create them.”
This was a YA sci-fi story about people with superpowers.
Kenna was quite a determined girl, but I could see why she felt powerless. Being surrounded with people with superpowers whilst she was totally normal wasn’t the best feeling for her.
The storyline in this was about Kenna’s mother being kidnapped, and Kenna and her friends trying to figure out what was going on and who was to blame. We also had a bit of a ‘who’s really bad’ storyline going on with the villains verses heros.
The ending to this was a cliff-hanger.
