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...
If you could have a Super Power…
Tera Lynn Childs, POWERLESS co-author
If I could have any superpower, I’d want to be able to predict traffic. Getting across town in Las Vegas is pretty much a complete nightmare. There always seems to be something messing with the normal traffic flow: construction, accident, twelve drops of rain on the pavement—the horror! It would be awesome to know beforehand which route is going to be the disaster-du-jour and which will be smooth sailing.
Tracy Deebs, POWERLESS co-author
If I could have any superpower in the world, I would totally choose the ability to run and jump in high heels. I love high heels—I mean, I love them with the passion of a thousand burning suns. Unfortunately, I am also super clumsy (and when I say super clumsy I mean SUPER CLUMSY) and so, more often than not, I have to teeter along in them hoping with each step that I don’t trip or fall or wildly topple into something or someone (if we ever meet, ask me to tell you about a couple times when those wishes were unsuccessful—believe me, you’ll understand then).

Cori McCarthy, author of BREAKING SKY
If I had a superpower, it would be the ability to teleport myself to other countries. I might wake up feeling dreary and blink myself to the mystical, gunmetal gray fog of the Dingle Peninsula. Or if I wake up wanting to go scuba diving, *blink* and I’m on Guam standing before cobalt waves. Hungry as a lion? *Blink* and I’m in Rome, seated before a mountainous plate of cacio de pepe.
Cori’s teen protagonists take flight in her recent release BREAKING SKY. More information about this thriller can be found athttp://www.corimccarthy.com/breaking-sky/.
Hannah Jayne, author of THE ESCAPE
If I had a superpower it would be super speed—as long as acquiring said superpower doesn’t mean that I have to wear tights and a leotard on any kind of regular basis. I’d write books in a single bound, get dressed/make up/hair done in thirty seconds flat, and most importantly, I’d have a lot of extra time for sleeping in and reading every single one of the books in my waist-high “to be read” stack.

All my life there have only been three absolutes: ordinaries are useless, villains are evil, and heroes are good. Heroes are supposed to be the people the rest of the world looks up to, the very best examples of humanity.
I’ve spent my whole life distrusting villains—hating villains—and now I find out that some heroes are just as bad. Maybe worse. This kind of brutality is worse than anything I’ve ever heard villains accused of. This is worse than what they did to my father. Worse than murder.
Heroes are the good guys, the ones who stop things like this from happening. The heroes I know would never do this. But they are. They are. So what’s going on?
Hypnosis? Mind control? I don’t know. Somebody is responsible for this. There’s no other explanation.
But who? What are they getting out of it?
Another scream pierces the air, and I shudder. I’ve never felt so useless in my life. There is nothing I can do to help him, to save him. Nothing I can do to make it stop. What I wouldn’t give to have any superpower.
