I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

Laura and Alec are trained terrorists.

Jack and Aubrey are high school students.

There was no reason for them to ever meet.

Reaction:
An interesting take on the superhero story. And I actually like it even better than Robison's first novel with HarperTeen, Variant. Great time. I really want to get my hands on the followup.
