What would middle school be like if half your classmates had super powers? It's time for Penny Akk to find out. Her latest (failed) attempt to become a superhero has inspired the rest of the kids in her school to reveal their own powers.
Now, all of her relationships are changing. She has a not-at-all-secret admirer, who wants to be Penny's partner almost as much as she wants to be Penny's rival. The meanest girl in school has gained super powers and lost her mind. Can Penny help her find a better one? Can she help an aging supervillain connect with his daughter, and mend the broken hearts of two of the most powerful people in the world? And in all this, where will she find time for her own supervillainous fun, or even more dangerous, to start dating?
It's going to be a long, strange semester.

Better than the second
Not what I expected, still a lot of fun.
I initially passed on this Due to a Lack of the Inscrutable Machine. While the Inscrutable Machine has very little to do with this novel, it's in the same universe, narrated by the same lead character and is just a lot of fun. A large host of new characters are introduced, giving the series a nice boost and many more options for the future. While a lot of character development takes place, it doesn't really seem to slow things down. If you enjoyed the first two, this one is still fun. Perhaps not the best in the series to date, but you're still gonna like it.
