"A first novel with superpowers, smarts and heart to spare" (Kelly Link, author of Stranger Things Happen)
"A thoughtful and convincing blend of magic and realism... Superpowers tells us a story both soaring and sober" (Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club)
"Schwartz strikes the right balance between vicarious superhero adventure and thoughtful reflection on the hidden costs of being a Good Samaritan" ( Booklist)
A party in a college flat in May 2001. A case of dodgy home-brewed beer. A violent storm. Next day: the mother of all hangovers. What would you do if you the morning after the night before brought a banging head, a raging thirst... Oh, and your very own superpower?
Meet the All-Stars: Harriet, Charlie, Caroline, Mary-Beth and Jack. Harriet can make herself invisible, Charlie can read your mind, Caroline can fly, and Jack, well, Jack can run faster than a speeding bullet.
Determined to become costumed crime-fighters, but baffled by the lack of super-villains to tackle, the quintet soon finds that the ramifications of their new powers are more complicated than they anticipated, and that humans (even themselves) are much more fragile than they'd realised.
