Official Goodreads Summary:

Opal has been planning to go to Chicago and join the Midwest’s superhero team, the Sentinels, since she was a little kid. That dream took on a more urgent tone when her superpowered dad was unjustly arrested for protecting a neighbor from an abusive situation. Now, she wants to be a superhero not only to protect people, but to get a platform to tell the world about the injustices of the Altered Persons Bureau, the government agency for everything relating to superpowers.

But just after Opal’s high school graduation, a supervillain with a jet and unclear motives attacks the downtown home of the Sentinels, and when Opal arrives, she finds a family on the brink of breaking apart. She meets a boy who’s been developing secret (and illegal) brain-altering nanites right under the Sentinel’s noses, another teenage superhero-hopeful who looks suspiciously like a long-dead supervillain, and the completely un-superpowered daughter of the Sentinels’ leader. Can four teens on the fringes of the superhero world handle the corruption, danger, and family secrets they’ve unearthed?

Lending Books + Recommendations for New Readers

It is every bookworm’s dream that all their friends and family read the millions of books they love so that they can rant  hold long discussions on how the book ended on a cliffhanger yet again!

But when they come up to us to borrow that book… we actually get a mini heart-attack. I’ve had plenty of long discussions with fellow booknerds who desperately do not want to give their soul books to other people.

Because lending books is a life-changing decision and there should be proper one-on-one interviews before we even think of giving away our precious books.
