From the Series Lorimer SideStreets
Zadie thinks she’s tough and indestructible, like the superheroes she draws in her graphic novels. She’ll fight any girl who dares to take her on, and she always wins—until, one day, she loses. Beat up and riled up, she quickly gets her revenge and hospitalizes the next girl she challenges. Scared that this time she may have gone too far, Zadie tries to keep out of trouble. But when some girls launch a cyberbullying campaign against her meant to spur her into violence, Zadie decides that enough is enough, and the lines between superhero and supervillain become blurred. A story written by a fresh young voice about violent teen girls and society’s general ineptitude in understanding and helping them.
