Anti/Hero by Kate Karyus Quinn


A little young but super cute. This graphic novel is about two girls with opposite problems-- one with a big family struggling to match academic expectations, who is very physical; the other with a small family, struggling with financial problems and lack of coordination.

I thought this was an interesting take on the superhero genre because it is so targeted towards young girls and the problems they face. To the point where the superhero stuff nearly takes a back seat. I also liked how the "villain"-- or at least, the person you think is the villain-- ends up being surprising.

It's very light fare and a little forgettable but I enjoyed reading it a lot.

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!  

3 out of 5 stars
