Summary from Goodreads:
Reality TV meets Superhero High School in this intriguing story about friendship, fame, and what it means to be a hero.
In Icon City superheroes save the day every day on the quarter hour. Led by Captain Fantastic, scores of superhero celebrities do their best to train the next generation. Seventeen year old Friday Fitzsimmons and Jake her childhood friend are their latest starstruck recruits. When Doctor Dangerous returns from the dead and the Figure in Flames decimates the city, Captain Fantastic is betrayed by one of his own.
Torn between Jake, Ashley and her feelings for Doctor Dangerous, Friday must decide if her childhood friend is worth fighting for, and if the worlds most famous super-villain is worth saving, all while learning how to be a hero.
My Review: This book was fantastic, it is absolutely no secret I am a nerd so I am always looking for a good super hero book when I am between Captain America movies (I have a serious one sided relationship with Captain America) anyway this book did not disappoint in any shape or form. This book was fantastic, fast paced and a page turner that I could not put down.
I loved the character names. I loved the reality TV part of the story it felt unique and I really could not stop reading. Plus to be honest I thought the book would be predictable and it wasn’t. The story kept me guessing until the very end. Plus the villains are even awesome like really awesome.
Don’t trust my input on this awesome book read the advanced praise below and do yourself a favor and get this book. Asap.
– I think this book will appeal greatly to fans of the Selection. – the dressmaker D’fwan reminded me of America’s maids … The whole TV reality show aspect also reminded me of Hunger Game as well as The Selection.
– I Really Loved The Book
I am so looking forward to book two. I love the world you’ve created and I want to explore it more. I thoroughly enjoyed Friday and her story.
– I Really, Really Enjoyed This Book!
The way that Ashley and Friday’s relationship progressed was amazing. Too often, in books the two main love interests relationships progress way too quickly and it was refreshing to see Ashley and Friday’s relationship develop gradually instead of it being super rushed.
– I Would Give This Book a Full 5/5 Stars!
Like there was just so much to this book and none of the characters are like what you originally predicted. Every chapter keeps adding to the story and making it more and more complex, and it leaves you on the edge of your seat in suspense.
About the Author
Hi! I’m Mina Chara, I’m a student, an artist, a daughter, sister and companion to my two furry friends, Gimli and Gwynne. This blog is here because I’ve just written a book called Hero High: Figure In The Flames.
This is My Story:
Being dyslexic isn’t so much of a problem, the hard part is not letting it dictate what I like, and what I can do. For years I was scared of reading, but then I discovered YA fiction, real books with main characters I could relate to because most of them were girls.
When someone criticizes my writing, I feel like crying, because I feel like that I’m back in English class getting yelled at again, just wanting to go home, but I’m not a kid anymore, I’m an adult, and as an adult, I wrote a book, and you can too.
