ABOUT THE BOOK -
Sixteen-year-old Annarenee Stevens is the sole member of her family without a super power. The only time she feels powerful is in the pool. With her sights set on swimming for U.C. Berkeley, she’s ready to win it all at the State championship and secure her future.
When the government unexpectedly ends the secret Genetically Enhanced Asset (GEA) program, Annarenee is uprooted from Dayton, the only home she’s ever known, and relocated to San Diego with all of the other GEA families. Queen of her public school, Annarenee is just another zero at Superhero High, a school without any sports teams.
With the end of the program, her hero older brother now needs a college education, too, meaning the only way Annarenee is getting into Berkeley is on a scholarship. Her dream is slipping through her fingers, no matter how tightly she clings to it. To make matters worse, super hot superhero, Ren Gonzalez, is paying too much attention to her. The kind of attention that has Ren’s ex-girlfriend intent on making Annarenee’s life even more miserable.
But when heroes begin disappearing, zeros and heroes will be forced to team up in order to solve the mystery. If they don’t kill each other first.
T.H. Hernandez is the author of young adult books. The Union, a futuristic dystopian adventure, was a finalist in the 2015 San Diego book awards in the Young Adult Fiction category.
She loves pumpkin spice lattes, Game of Thrones, Comic-Con, Star Wars, Doctor Who marathons, Bad Lip Reading videos, and all things young adult, especially the three young adults who share her home.
When not visiting the imaginary worlds inside her head, T.H. Hernandez lives in usually sunny San Diego, California with her husband and three children, a couple of cats, and a dog who thinks he’s a cat, affectionately referred to as “the puppycat.”
MY THOUGHTS -
This was a cute fun read. It wasn't really quite as exciting as I would have thought, but still a good read. It is labeled as a YA but seems to read a little younger to me. Probably only because YA books seem pretty mature these days :-/
The characters were very likable, great personalities, and believable. Even the "mean girls" were great characters - the kind of girls you loved to hate!
A fun, nice little mystery to this that kept you guessing. Another reviewer described it as cutesy and I would have to agree even with the missing teens it just didn't ever seem very serious or earth shaking for some reason. I think a young teen girl would love this book! An adult, maybe not so much.
I voluntarily posted this review after receiving an audio copy of this book from Expresso book tours . Thank you!
