This is book number 1 in the The Extraordinaries series.
"Ah, this book was such a breath of fresh air! TJ Klune has created a relatable, funny, and heartfelt coming-of-age story that will introduce you to your new favorite literary superheroes. I spent most of the book cackling (kinda like Pyro Storm, but my thighs aren't as muscular) and then daydreaming of book two! A great queer rom-com (with real life superheroes, okay?!) for readers looking for escape, joy, and LOTS of laughter."— Eugenia
"Michael Lesley's upbeat narration captures all the whimsy, humor, and heart of this YA superhero romp...This sweet queer coming-of-age story will please listeners looking for something fun, surprising, and affirming." -- AudioFile Magazine

Nick Bell? Not extraordinary. But being the most popular fanfiction writer in the Extraordinaries fandom is a superpower, right?
After a chance encounter with Shadow Star, Nova City’s mightiest hero (and Nick’s biggest crush), Nick sets out to make himself extraordinary. And he’ll do it with or without the reluctant help of Seth Gray, Nick's best friend (and maybe the love of his life).
