She was definitely the most interesting woman Barry had met at Penbrooke College, but when she claimed to be a superhero, he realized she must be crazy. Then again, maybe he was the one losing his mind, because the more time he spent with her, the less crazy she seemed. More
It started with a chance encounter in the Student Union. She was definitely the most interesting woman Barry had met at Penbrooke College, but when she claimed to be a superhero, he realized she must be crazy. That was before he found himself being chased by drug dealers, kidnapped by gangsters, and caught in the tangled web of a global conspiracy. Maybe his new friend is crazy, or maybe she really is a superhero... Barry's not really sure anymore. He's just hoping he survives long enough to graduate.

This book is a page-turner, and I enjoyed the fast-paced story. I even like how the question of Dee's superheroism is a running theme of the book as well as Barry's questioning of his own status. The ideas of the story are great, and they're a blast of fresh air - something desperately needed in these times.
I look forward to reading more about Dee, Barry, and the rest of the team in the next installment!
