Mighty Odds (The Odds Series #1) Hardback
by Amy Ignatow
Part of the Odds series
What do you get when you mix a sci-fi nerd, a cartoonist, a social outcast, and the most popular girl in school with a mysterious bus crash?
Some very specific superpowers: Martina can change her eye colour; Nick can teleport four inches to the left; Farshad can develop super strength, but only in his thumbs; and Cookie can read minds, when those minds are thinking about directions.
They are, in short, the just okayish heroes. Starring a diverse group of kids with (very limited) superpowers, this series' multiple narrators make for a quirky, pitch-perfect read that tackles identity and stereotypes.
Ignatow's characters have been praised widely, as "very real" by the New York Times and "completely convincing" by the New Yorker.
