Some people are extraordinary. Some are just extra. TJ Klune's YA debut, The Extraordinaries, is a queer coming-of-age story about a fanboy with ADHD and the heroes he loves.

Nick Bell? Not extraordinary. But being the most popular fanfiction writer in the Extraordinaries fandom is a superpower, right?

Super queer superheroes = SUPERQUEEROES


Some people are extraordinary. Some are just extra. aka every character by TJ Klune (and Klune himself, but don't tell him)

Also, you can read an excerpt here. And it's amazing.

Todo lo que escribe TJ Klune es magia, ya quiero su libro en mis manos.
