Blaze, Or Love in the Time of Supervillains is full of snark, good humor, and plenty of painfully awkward moments as Blaze fumbles her way through her first relationship and learns a few things about herself along the way. Superhero metaphors and allusions abound in this quirky story, and Blaze’s voice is very strong and distinct. Her endless optimism balanced with a sarcastic tone make her a funny, likable narrator who learns to deal with disappointments in life with grace, flair, and plenty of nerdy humor. Crompton’s debut novel is intelligent, unexpectedly sweet, and full of attitude.
Cover Comments: If you don't pick up the novel for the synopsis or title, you'll definitely pick it up for the fantastic cover! Like the book, this cover has so much attitude. I absolutely love it.
Many thanks to Cori McCarthy who introduced me to this book and let me borrow her copy!
