her Hunger Games adaptation, now this. The Adventures of Superhero Girl tracks the daring and not-so-daring events in the life of a twenty-something superhero.
The early, more mundane adventures of our heroine involve such riveting tasks as saving cats from trees and doing laundry, but I cheated and read ahead at The Coast. There the story evolves into something else. It's not just that Superhero girl has to deal with household chores or forgets her mask when she goes to the library; she's a young woman trying to follow her bliss, like so many of us. Superhero Girl can battle tentacle beasts from outerspace, but she also needs some publicity, an arch-nemesis, a paycheck (or, at least, a government grant). She lives in a world where the supervillain doesn't just beat her up; he'll beat her out for a job.
A young woman trying to make it in the world while doing what she loves? Maybe Superhero Girl's secret identity isn't so secret after all.
