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.
