Overview

Separated by thousands of miles, two young women are about to realize the extraordinary powers which bind their lives together in ways they can't begin to understand.

Protecting others. Maintaining order. Being good. These are important things for Bonnie Braverman, even if she doesn't understand why. Confined to a group home since she survived the car accident that killed her parents, Bonnie has lived her life in self-imposed isolation and silence; but when an opportunity presents itself to help another in need, Bonnie has to decide whether to actually use the power she has long suspected she has.

Across the country, Lola LeFever is inheriting her own power by sending her mother over a cliff...literally. For Lola the only thing that matters is power; getting it, taking it, and eliminating anyone who gets in her way. With nothing to hold her back from the world, Lola sets off to test her own powers on anyone unfortunate enough to cross her.

And now they're about to meet.

What People are saying about this

Bryan Q. Miller
Refreshingly, TGWWBK isn't about one heroine, torn between two suitors - it's about two young women with tremendous power, torn between right and wrong. Between good and evil. Destiny and free will. In a compelling, poppy exploration of Nature vs. Nurture, these girls don't just fly - they soar. - Bryan Q. Miller (author of Batgirl Vol. 3 and writer for Smallville)
Rob Bricken
[TGWWBK] introduces the best superhero/villain pair in ages. Lola is, without hyperbole, one of the most fantastic antagonists I've ever had the pleasure to read. - io9 (Rob Bricken)
Erin Jade Lange
This book is f***ing amazing and I wouldn't change a damn thing. - Erin Jade Lange (author of Butter and Dead Ends)
Ross Campbell
TGWWBK is not only one of my favorite books ever, but it also has maybe my favorite literary character: Lola LeFever! - Ross Campbell (creator of Wet Moon and Shadoweyes, artist for Glory)
Scott Snyder
A fresh, vibrant and haunting story that rivetingly explores of the danger and wonder of (super) power. In Lola and Bonnie Thompson has created two extraordinary characters - extraordinary in their abilities, surely, but also in their richness and complexity. A superhero story that's epic in scope, but also intimate - a great read. - Scott Snyder (critically acclaimed writer of Batman, Detective Comics, Superman Unchained, American Vampire, The Wake and more!)
