BADASS! Check out this first look at Heroine Complex, an upcoming novel about Asian American superheroes, by our friend (and former Angry Reader of the Week) Sarah Kuhn.
In Heroine Complex, Evie Tanaka is stuck being the personal assistant to Aveda Jupiter, who's San Francisco's most beloved superhero -- and Evie's childhood best friend. Too bad Aveda has grown up to be kind of a diva. Evie has everything under control, until she's forced to impersonate her boss and former friend for one night, and then discovers that she, too, has superpowers. Cue superheroic karaoke battles, deadly cupcakes, and a demon invasion that could just destroy the whole city.
