* A lighthearted twist on the superhero genre!

This is what my life would be like if I were a superhero.
So yeah, I loved Faith Erin Hick's other book Friends with Boys, so I been reading her other books as well. This was just as good and the cover's kind of adorable. The art is still good and the story as well. Another good read.
