THE TOP FIVE WAYS NOT TO START YOUR FIRST DAY AT A NEW HIGH SCHOOL:
- Tell the hottest guy in class that he reminds you of an elf.
- Get enormongo cramps.
- Annoy one of the Populars.
- Make even the geeks pity you.
- Finally get the super powers you thought you’d never have and explode all the windows in English class.
Jessie was SO not wearing tights and a cape!
“Take this angst-ridden teen, mix in some hilarious situations, frost with touching scenes and heartfelt moments and you have SUPER WHAT? – A quirky fun-filled adventure into the lives of teens and, yes, even superheroes.”
“Jessie is an exciting, wise-cracking character . . . [T]his will be snatched up by fans of teen fiction.”
—Erika Sorocco, teen correspondent for the Community Bugle
“Speaking as one who whirled herself dizzy wanting to turn into Wonder Girl but never considered the drawbacks to getting the wish, this is a laugh-out-loud fun read for all ages.”
“[A] delightfully funny story that will keep you wanting to turn the pages faster to see what will happen to Jessie next.”
I am so not wearing tights and a cape.
If you think the first day at a new school sucks, try being the daughter of a washed-up super hero. My mom quit the League of Liberty after evil villains tried to take over the world and my dad disappeared. Why is it that the villains always want to take over the world? Why don’t they just want to take over, say, Miami? They could have fun doing their villain thing on the drug dealers who, let’s face it, nobody would miss, and plus they’d get beaches. But, nooooo, it always has to be the entire world.
Most evil villains suffer from a case of the Greedy Gimmies, if you ask me.
So, there we were in Skyville, Florida, and I got to start the first day of sophomore year with total strangers. I figured if some lame teacher asked me to stand up and tell the class all about myself, Going Postal would no longer be an expression. The new one would be Going Jessie.
