2015 book 15

Lexie Dunne's Superheroes Anonymous
I LOOOOOOVE novels about superheroes, and this is a pretty strong entry in the genre. It centers on a young woman named Gail in Chicago, nicknamed "Hostage Girl" for the many times supervillains have targets her in the belief that her boyfriend is the superhero who always turns up to rescue you. I won't say anything else about the plot, which has a few nice twists and turns, and will just say that I enjoyed this quite a bit and very much look forward to the sequel (this straight up ends on a cliffhanger). It reminded me quite a bit of Carrie Vaughn's After the Golden Age, and god knows I loved that one. A-.
