2010 book 128

Chelsea Campbell's The Rise of Renegade X
Oh man, was this a fun read. It's about a teenage boy growing up in a town full of superheroes and villains, each of whom are marked with an H or a V. So when his 16th birthday approaches, he's excited to get his V and be on track to be a villain like his mad scientist mother. Only instead of a V, an X appears--he's the product of a rare relationship between a villain and a hero! Dismayed, he ends up forced to spend time with his father learning what a hero actually does. Plus there's some romance and adventure along the way. GREAT coming-of-age villain identity stuff, plus the main character is hilarious. A.
