Actual Rating - 4.5
What a fun and entertainig read! I love that this wasn't your typical superhero story. In fact, the main character isn't technically a superhero at all! The story was fun, fast paced, and a little silly which made for a great reading experience. While there were some predictable elements, it was still such a fun story to read that it didn't matter.
Also props to the author for having all these diverse characters without making it feel awkward. They fit in the story perfectly and naturally, as they should always be! There were no issues along the lines of "well LGBTQIA+ can't be superheroes" and it just made me so happy to have all these characters included in every aspect of a greta story. This is where I hope to see LGBTQIA+ books get to in any new publications.
I found the romance to be especially adorable. It made me remember what it was like to get your first crush when I was younger and I found myself getting nervous and excited when our main character did. Even the side characters were written with so much detail that you felt like you knew them. It was just a great reading experience all around.
