The Supervillain and Me by Danielle Banas - ADVISABLE

The Supervillain and Me by Danielle Banas.  320 pages. Swoon Reads (Macmillan), JULY 2018. Language: R (56 swears, 2’f’); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG-13.


It's bad enough that Abby lives her superhero brother, Conner aka Red Comet, and has to keep his secret even from her Red Comet-fanatic best friend Sarah.  Now Abby’s life was saved by a new superhero in town, she thinks she might like this mysterious guy, AND he may actually be a villain.  Is this new super Isaac, the dreamy new guy who is the leading man to Abby’s leading lady in the school musical?  Or it is someone else – Rylan, the shy guy from the background of Abby’s high school days who suddenly is looking hotter than ever? Be involved with supers was never more complicated than when hearts are also involved.

Banas has written a superhero novel that is sure to draw in many fans of the genre.  Superhero books are a little harder sell in my library than the movies are in the theaters, but I have confidence in this one.  The romance is the front and center plot point and that will definitely help sell it.
