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.

If This was a Jury, I'd be the Holdout...

I seem to be alone in my assessment of this book. But I found it totally lacking in fully realized characters that I had to put in my own preconceived attributes of teenagers and comic book superheroes. I needed more reality, more descriptions of the world they live in.
Almost everything was just told instead of shown. We got characters telling about the super heroes and villains without actually being in the story. And the author goes to great lengths to describe the workings and mechanisms of the devices that I found to be so dull because it was like, who cares if the altenator circuit thing doesn't have the proper wires? That's not the reality that is needed.
To be fair, I admit to stopping listening a bit more than halfway through so maybe it really picked up later, but I just couldn't wait.
And, by the way, I enjoy YA series with superheroes like Ex-Heroes, but those were well-written, clearly establishing the world that these well-defined characters lived in.
Sorry, it's just that with a title so compelling, the book really disappointed.

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.
