X-Men meets The Breakfast Club in this darkly humorous adventure

The Vindico are a group of supervillains who have been fighting the League of Heroes for as long as anyone can remember. Realizing they're not as young as they used to be, they devise a plan to kidnap a group of teenagers to take over for them when they retire--after all, how hard can it be to teach a bunch of angsty teens to be evil?

Held captive in a remote mansion, five teens train with their mentors and receive superpowers beyond their wildest dreams. Struggling to uncover the motives of the Vindico, the teens have to trust each other to plot their escape. But they quickly learn that the differences between good and evil are not as black and white as they seem, and they are left wondering whose side they should be fighting on after all . . .

With fast-paced action, punchy dialogue, and sarcastic humor, this high-stakes adventure from a talented new YA voice pulls you in from the first page.

One of the best books I've ever read

I'm 13, and this is by far one of the best books I've ever read. It's the perfect mix of romance, adventure, mystery, and humour!
Not only that, it has been nominated for the Red Maple Award this year; an award given to two books each year: one non-fiction and one fiction, each for young teens. (voted for by kids) I am defiantly voting this one for fiction!
YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS BUY!
