As witty as it is heartpounding, this fresh take on the beloved superhero genre is all about finding your own way to shine even when it seems everyone else around you is, well... super.
Never trust a guy in spandex.
In Abby Hamilton’s world, superheroes do more than just stop crime and save cats stuck in trees—they also drink milk straight from the carton and hog the television remote. Abby’s older brother moonlights as the famous Red Comet, but without powers of her own, following in his footsteps has never crossed her mind.
That is, until the city’s newest vigilante comes bursting into her life.
After saving Abby from an attempted mugging, Morriston’s fledgling supervillain Iron Phantom convinces her that he’s not as evil as everyone says--and that their city is under a vicious new threat. As Abby follows him deeper into their city’s darkest secrets, she comes to learn that heroes can’t always be trusted, and sometimes it’s the good guys who wear black.
Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, The Supervillain and Me is a hilarious, sweet, and action-packed novel by debut author Danielle Banas that proves no one is perfect, not even superheroes.

Smartphones, TV screens, headlights, and billboards might illuminate the night sky of the twenty-first century, but the flights of fancy, myths, and fairy tales of bygone ages can still emerge from the shadows and steal the limelight.
Whether Rapunzel is a girl homeschooled in a high-rise apartment, or Sleeping Beauty is the victim of a rare medical syndrome;
Whether Pinocchio is a stiff young man determined not to lie, or "The Princess and the Pea" is really about a girl dating a mattress factory heir;
Whether a Rip Van Winkle contagion occurs because once scientist wants to save his lover, or a date with a peculiar Bluebearded gent is the outcome of one girl trying to overlook the small things;
These are fairy tales: the original urban (well, forest) myths, ye olde WTFs, the stories of glamour, hope, punishment, love, strange figures, and imagination that will always be with us.
These are fairy tales - twisted!
