Vada's To-Do List:

- Turn 18 (check!)
- Register super name
- Order supersuit
- Attend superhero indoctrination
- Graduate high school
- Start kicking criminal tail

Vada Lawson can’t wait to be a superhero. Born into a family with special powers, she’s been training to fight criminals and villains her whole life. But her indoctrination into the underground super community is derailed when normals start breaking out in superpowers themselves.

Not trained to control their new abilities, the normals are frightened and vulnerable. Then their mutilated corpses begin turning up all over town. What the heck?

Somehow, with the help—and hindrance—of an annoying newly-minted super named Orion, Vada has to stop the chaos before it destroys her and everything she holds dear…and ruins her superhero debut.

No one ever said that being a superhero was easy… 

I love YA. I love superheroes. The combination of the two is even better, and I was excited to dive into this series. 

I love Vada's name. The story has a cool premise with some people being born into superpowers and having to hide their true identities from "normals," those who don't have superpowers. But when normals seem to develop superpowers out of nowhere, the story gets interesting because supers like Vada need to figure out how to stop them from destroying the city. 

It was also cool that supers have a tech partner who can help them out with their suits and equipment they need. Vada and James's friendship and partnership was a highlight of the novel for me.    

This book is upper YA due to sexual content, and I agree with this classification. I'm not sure the sexual content was necessary or integral to the story, however, because the characters didn't seem mature enough for their ages. They're 18-19 years old, but they speak and act more like 12-13 year olds.  

I'd recommend this book to those ages 17 and over. I'm looking forward to this series and will be reading the next one when it comes out.
