Title: My Superhero Sister Series: Superhero Diaries Author: Toni LoTempio
Holly Hamilton has always been perturbed by the way her older sister, Ellen, seems to get everything. It's especially tough living in the shadow of your sister's cape when she's a super heroine named Suprema!
With one super-parent and one not, it was inevitable that the girls would turn out different. Unfortunately for Holly, she takes after her earthling mother. Ellen has taken over their retired father’s role as Century City's reigning superhero, balancing school and super-duties with remarkable ease while it’s a struggle for Holly to get through her English class without mishap, not to mention those Cheer Squad tryouts!
The girls learn their father’s old nemeses, Anti-Hero, has escaped from his Space Prison, and they’re concerned – Anti-Hero nullified their father’s powers once – what else does he have in store for him and Suprema? When another teen superhero extraordinaire appears on the scene, they’re even more puzzled. Who is Magna Boy? Is he friend or foe? And does he have a connection to Anti-Hero? The appearance of two new guys at school, teen heartthrob Tad Barker and nerd Ed McGee, set Holly and her sister to wondering—and arguing—could one of them be the new super kid on the block? If so, which one?
Working with her friend Mona and her scientist uncle, Holly finally uncovers Anti-Hero’s dastardly plot – he intends to capture Suprema and Magna Boy and siphon their powers for himself! Before she can warn her sibling, however, Anti-Hero strikes and captures the superheroes. Now it’s up to Holly to use her ingenuity and prove to everyone, but most of all herself, that you don’t’ have to be a superhero for good to win out over evil…or to nab a super-boyfriend, either!
This is a super-fun, light YA read that will keep you hooked and nostalgic for the good 'ole days when your one wish was to have magical superhero powers and could soar through the sky like Superman..or woman.
Holly is a normal girl, leading a normal life, but that is not the case for her older sister and father who are superheros. She, unfortunately, is plain as day like her mom. She wishes that she could be apart of the action and one day she gets her wish. She finds out the true meaning of be careful what you wish for...when her superhero family is taken and it is up to Holly to save them or lose everyone she loves...
This book was so much fun and a complete throwback to the old superhero comic books. I love the aspect of the regular family life mixed with this whole other superhero world that coexists and completely works. You see everything from envy between sisters to super powers, and even a little G rated romance!
This book is a great read, especially for young readers!
