Sixteen-year-old Annarenee Stevens is the sole member of her family without a super power. The only time she feels powerful is in the pool. With her sights set on swimming for U.C. Berkeley, she’s ready to win it all at the State championship and secure her future.When the government unexpectedly ends the secret Genetically Enhanced Asset (GEA) program, Annarenee is uprooted from Dayton, the only home she’s ever known, and relocated to San Diego with all of the other GEA families. Queen of her public school, Annarenee is just another zero at Superhero High, a school without any sports teams.
With the end of the program, her hero older brother now needs a college education, too, meaning the only way Annarenee is getting into Berkeley is on a scholarship. Her dream is slipping through her fingers, no matter how tightly she clings to it. To make matters worse, super hot superhero, Ren Gonzalez, is paying too much attention to her. The kind of attention that has Ren’s ex-girlfriend intent on making Annarenee’s life even more miserable.
But when heroes begin disappearing, zeros and heroes will be forced to team up in order to solve the mystery. If they don’t kill each other first.

Superhero High - T H Hernandez
I really enjoyed reading this story. So much fun with the different super powers. There is a lot going on throughout the story which held my attention from the beginning to the end.
The characters are well-developed and I liked their different personalities. My favorite characters were of course Ren and Annarenee. They had a great connection and it was fun to see how their friendship grew. It is easy to feel the emotions of all the characters.
The story flows well from chapter to chapter and it is easy to follow along.
The title of the book fits the story well and the cover of the book is also a perfect match.
I would recommend this book to other readers.
There is a small amount of profanity in the book.
I give this book a literary rating of 5/5

Top 10 story ideas would you like to tackle in the future?
I have a long list of books I’d love to write if I can find the time. Here are my top ten:
1. What happens when a girl who leads a charmed life suddenly has her luck fade away.
2. Turning the tables on the MeToo movement where a group of arrogant teen boys finds out what it’s like to be valued for their looks above everything else.
3. A dystopian story where parents are only permitted to have one child, and what they do when a set of identical twins is born.
4. A teen girl learns about homelessness in a big city when she falls a homeless boy.
5. A friends with benefits story with a twist.
6. Taking the double-standard about teens who have sex and placing it under a microscope. Slut-shaming of girls is one of my biggest pet peeves.
7. Time travel. It’s one of my favorite subgenres and I want to tackle it someday.
8. In a dystopian future, a ruler's son is forced to choose a bride from a pool of bachelorettes in a reality show he wants no part of.
9. A teen girl, adopted as an infant from China by American parents finds herself at the center of racism and fear after the U.S. President starts a war with North Korea.
10. Paranormal. But something new and different. I don’t know what yet, but I want to take on the world building that would go with paranormal and move it in a new direction.
SOUNDS SUPER NEAT!
