|12:00 am - Superhero YA Books|
Building from something I've been thinking about, I thought I'd slap together a list of YA books featuring superheroes and comic book elements. This isn't counting graphic novels or officially licensed novelizations. Trust me, I know all about those. :>
Thus far, I have:
Hero by Perry Moore
Superpowers by David Schwartz
Dull Boy by Sarah Cross
the Chance Fortune books by Shane Berryhill
Powerless by Matthew Cody
Super What? and Super 16 by Jax Abbott
Hottie by Jonathan Bernstein
Anyone have more suggestions? Certainly, this can't be it....
Current Mood: thoughtful
The Rise of Renegade X, by Chelsea Campbell :)
That looks good. I'll have to get my hands on it.
Jackie Kessler's two as well.
I'm familiar with the duology she did with Caitlin Kittredge, and I love that series. It's just not really what I'd consider YA. Excellent books, though!
Queeroes by Steven Bereznai
I'll add that to my list of books to read. :>
I'm familiar with Grossman's book. I liked it, but it didn't really seem YA to me. I'm not familiar with Lieb's, but I'll keep my eyes open for it. :>
