Welcome to Andover... where superpowers are common, but internships are complicated. Just ask high school nobody, Jessica Tran. Despite her heroic lineage, Jess is resigned to a life without superpowers and is merely looking to beef-up her college applications when she stumbles upon the perfect (paid!) internship--only it turns out to be for the town's most heinous supervillain. On the upside, she gets to work with her longtime secret crush, Abby, who Jess thinks may have a secret of her own. Then there's the budding attraction to her fellow intern, the mysterious "M, " who never seems to be in the same place as Abby. But what starts as a fun way to spite her superhero parents takes a sudden and dangerous turn when she uncovers a plot larger than heroes and villains altogether.

High school student Jess is the daughter of two local superheroes, but her own powers won’t seem to kick in. When Jess gets a job at a mysterious tech company, she ends up working with her crush, Abby. Think of the movie “Sky High” but with more queer representation and a little more conspiracy. It falls into a lot of tropes, but it’s a super sweet, easy read. My whole book club was charmed by it!

This book is adorable, funny, inclusive, and a must read for super hero fans who want to see more queer superpowered people.

This book was amazing! I thought that the world of the book was really interesting, and Jess was a strong and enjoyable heroine.
