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.
If you could have any super power, which one would it be and why?
What kid hasn’t spent at least one lazy summer day lying on their back in the grass, staring up at the sky, and discussing what super power you’d want? For me, it was many lazy days. Back when I was a kid, we had three months off, only a handful of channels on TV that showed nothing but reruns, and no smart phones. So we spent way too much time dreaming big.
I’ve always been torn between being able to fly and reading minds. Knowing what people are thinking would be such a fantastic power. As I kid, I thought it would be cool to know if Steve Harris liked me or not, but as an adult, I could negotiate the best raise or broker world peace.
But flying…soaring through the air, unencumbered would not only be fun, but convenient. Not having to wait for a bus to go to school was the dream back then, but now, imagine traveling without having to go through airport security, or bypassing traffic?
But I have to pick one, so I’m going to go with flying. Because while reading minds would be cool in certain circumstances, I feel like it would destroy more relationships than it would be worth.
