Pub. Date:
What do you get when you mix a sci-fi nerd, a cartoonist, a social outcast, and the most popular girl in school with a mysterious bus crash? Some very specific superpowers: Martina can change her eye colour; Nick can teleport four inches to the left; Farshad can develop super strength, but only in his thumbs; and Cookie can read minds, when those minds are thinking about directions. They are, in short, the just okayish heroes. Starring a diverse group of kids with (very limited) superpowers, this series' multiple narrators make for a quirky, pitch-perfect read that tackles identity and stereotypes. Ignatow's characters have been praised widely, as "very real" by the New York Times and "completely convincing" by the New Yorker.

display_description When artsy cartoonist Martina, sweet nerd Nick, social outcast Farshad, and popular beauty queen Cookie are all in the same mysterious bus accident, they all develop very strange, seemingly insignificant "superpowers." Martina can change her eye color, while Nick can teleport just four inches to his left. Farshad has super strength only in his thumbs, and Cookie can read minds, so long as those minds are thinking about directions. An odd mix they make, but together they are oddly mighty. Now they must combine their powers to find out just what happened during the bus accident and why.
