Publisher's Summary

Penelope Akk wants to be a superhero. She's got superhero parents. She's got the ultimate mad science power, filling her life with crazy gadgets that even she doesn't understand. She has two superpowered best friends. In middle school the line between good and evil looks clear. In real life nothing is that clear. All it takes is one hero's sidekick picking a fight, and Penny and her friends are labeled supervillains. In the process Penny learns a hard lesson about villainy: She's good at it.
Criminal masterminds, heroes in power armor, bottles of dragon blood, alien war drones, shape-shifters, and ghosts - no matter what the superpowered world throws at her, Penny and her friends come out on top. They have to. If she can keep winning, maybe she can clear her name before her mom and dad find out.

Fun for the whole family

So I picked up this book when it was on sale on audible because my son was wanting to listen to a book. As it turns out we ended up spending the better part of every night for a full week sitting on the couch and listening to this wonderful book together. My son isn't a big 'reader' but this has encouraged him to explore books more. As for me, I loved it as well. It was well written and fun. It is fast paced with interesting characters and comic heroes. I am a big fan of comics and super heroes and have been for years. This scratched the itch perfectly and had the added bonus of bringing my son and I closer together. I HIGHLY recommend this book and we can't wait for the next two to come to Audible! Thank you Richard Roberts!

An amazing book with bad-ass characters.

I don't generally like children books, but this book is so well written that it would have to be my second favorite book.
Audible needs to please release numbers 2 and 3 for this series.

Great story and well read

I thought this book would be for my children, playing it mostly in the car on the school runs.
However, I found myself enjoying the story and listening more and more when the children were not around :-)
I do recommend this book for all, very enjoyable.

nice and funny.

a tale of a wannabe super hero who somehow drifts into the role of a super villain and becomes pretty good at it. it's funny because no matter how much she tries everyone including her parents take it the wrong way.
