A-Z Indie Books: Powered

Today's featured book is Powered by Cheyanne Young
Maci Might's sixteenth birthday is supposed to be the day she's awarded Hero status. But thanks to a tiny anger problem and a questionable family tree, King City's elders think it's best if she doesn't join the Hero ranks. Determined to change their minds, Maci will break whatever rule it takes to prove she's Hero material. As her hair darkens and her anger grows, everyone turns against her except Evan; a childhood friend turned scientist who may be able to unlock the secrets hidden in her DNA.

When a villain attacks King City and her dad is held prisoner, Maci discovers a truth she refuses to believe. She may not be a Hero after all—but this time the Heroes of King City need her more than she needs them. And she won't let them down.

Powered is the first in a trilogy.

Comments:  As a writer of superhero fiction, I was really intrigued by the universe the author builds.  It is unlike the traditional superhero universe, as the heroes have essentially their own little society operating outside of mainstream society.  In that society either you're a Hero or one of the faceless minions supporting them.  If you want to think of it another way, it's like a sports team where you have the star athletes and then you have the trainer, waterboy, towel boy, equipment manager, and countless other faceless minions who make sure they can take the field/court/rink.  This universe then sets the table for Maci's problems as the daughter of the greatest Hero, she definitely doesn't want to end up a nobody.

  2. It sounds a little like Sky High.

    1. There's really no high school involved.
