The book is a bit cheesy, the character names makes it seem like a parody of itself, like its trying to hard to make Marvel superheroes not look like their from Marvel.
That being said, I did enjoy the book. The illustrations were a nice touch, and the story was well written. The premise was a bit cheesy, but then again, most superhero books that aren’t all “death and gloom” are a bit cheesy. It reminded me a lot of Sky High, which was one of my favorite movies as a kid (And is now on Netflix!). Also sort of reminded me of Being Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram. If you liked that book, I think you’ll like this one.
I’m a sucker for superheroes.
In all, I enjoyed the book, and I’m glad I was given the opportunity to read and review it. If you like slightly-cheesy romance and superheroes, you’ll love this.
– I think this book will appeal greatly to fans of the Selection. – the dressmaker D’fwan reminded me of America’s maids … The whole TV reality show aspect also reminded me of Hunger Game as well as The Selection.
– I Really Loved The Book
I am so looking forward to book two. I love the world you’ve created and I want to explore it more. I thoroughly enjoyed Friday and her story.
– I Really, Really Enjoyed This Book!
The way that Ashley and Friday’s relationship progressed was amazing. Too often, in books the two main love interests relationships progress way too quickly and it was refreshing to see Ashley and Friday’s relationship develop gradually instead of it being super rushed.
– I Would Give This Book a Full 5/5 Stars!
Like there was just so much to this book and none of the characters are like what you originally predicted. Every chapter keeps adding to the story and making it more and more complex, and it leaves you on the edge of your seat in suspense.
About the Author
Hi! I’m Mina Chara, I’m a student, an artist, a daughter, sister and companion to my two furry friends, Gimli and Gwynne. This blog is here because I’ve just written a book called Hero High: Figure In The Flames.
This is My Story:
Being dyslexic isn’t so much of a problem, the hard part is not letting it dictate what I like, and what I can do. For years I was scared of reading, but then I discovered YA fiction, real books with main characters I could relate to because most of them were girls.
When someone criticizes my writing, I feel like crying, because I feel like that I’m back in English class getting yelled at again, just wanting to go home, but I’m not a kid anymore, I’m an adult, and as an adult, I wrote a book, and you can too.
