Kenna is tired of being "normal." The only thing special about her is that she isn't special at all. Which is frustrating when you're constantly surrounded by superheroes. Her best friend, her ex-boyfriend, practically everyone she knows has some talent or power. Sure, Kenna's smart and independent, but as an ordinary girl in an extraordinary world, it's hard not to feel inferior. So when three villains break into the lab where she interns, Kenna refuses to be a victim. She's not about to let criminals steal the research that will make her extraordinary too. But in the heat of battle, secrets are spilled and one of the villains saves her life. Twice. Suddenly, everything Kenna thought she knew about good and evil, heroes and villains is upended. And to protect her life and those she loves, she must team up with her sworn enemies on a mission that will redefine what it means to be powerful and powerless...

I had mixed feelings about this book. I’m not a huge fan of the characters. None of them are particularly likeable; no one’s funny or nice. Everyone was just angry all the time. Kenna, the MC, definitely falls into the YA heroine archetype. She’s strong-willed, stubborn, snarky, doesn’t like authority, proud, wants to prove a point—but it goes over-the-top. She makes a big deal over things that shouldn’t be a problem. She’s definitely big on the whole “just because I don’t have powers doesn’t mean I’m powerless” thing, which got repetitive. The romantic sub-plot was cliche and dramatic (and this from someone who gobbles up YA). There is a lot of unnecessary cussing.
However, all problems with the characters aside, the plot was interesting enough to keep me going. I had thought about stopping near the beginning because of the characters, but I’m actually glad I pushed through it because the plot was engaging and fast-paced. I couldn’t put it down because there wasn’t really a good stopping point; it went from one attempted heist to the next. The basic theme is corny (the heroes aren’t all good, the villains aren’t all bad). It was definitely goal-driven. I’m interested in reading the sequel to find out the resolution to the plot even though the characters leave me wishing for more.
