Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Supervillain and Me - Danielle Banas

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I can't wait for The Supervillain and Me!

The Supervillain and Me
Danielle Banas
Series: Morriston Superheroes, #1
Release Date: July 10, 2019
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Waited on by: Sam
As witty as it is heartpounding, this fresh take on the beloved superhero genre is all about finding your own way to shine even when it seems everyone else around you is, well... super.

Never trust a guy in spandex.

In Abby Hamilton’s world, superheroes do more than just stop crime and save cats stuck in trees—they also drink milk straight from the carton and hog the television remote. Abby’s older brother moonlights as the famous Red Comet, but without powers of her own, following in his footsteps has never crossed her mind.

That is, until the city’s newest vigilante comes bursting into her life.

After saving Abby from an attempted mugging, Morriston’s fledgling supervillain Iron Phantom convinces her that he’s not as evil as everyone says, and that their city is under a vicious new threat. As Abby follows him deeper into their city’s darkest secrets, she comes to learn that heroes can’t always be trusted, and sometimes it’s the good guys who wear black.

Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, The Supervillain and Me is a hilarious, sweet, and action-packed novel by debut author Danielle Banas that proves no one is perfect, not even superheroes.
So, that synopsis makes me think of something like this:

Meg = Abby

Though I am not a big superhero book person, this one drew me in. I love stories about people trying to find their special "something", that thing that makes them standout. I thought it was tough living in my sister's shadow, but Abby has a superhero brother, and no super powers of her own. I am interested in seeing how her life as a sidekick to a repentant supervillain plays out, because I think it will be a lot of fun.

What are you waiting on?
