I LOVED THIS! I received it from the author in exchange for an honest review and it's on my list of the best books I've ever read. I am so happy that I found such a series to look forward to! Do you know how difficult it is to find a good dystopian book about people with superpowers?!
You have this story of a post-apocalyptic world, divided between the Supergenics (those who have superpowers) and the dregs (those who don’t), basically our own world (even though it’s not specifically said so, but

I'd like to start off this review by thanking the author, Steven Bereznai, for sending me this fantastic book to read and review. It took me a while to read as I've been extremely busy, but this book was worth it! Every time I picked this book up, no matter where I was in the story, it was just as riveting and wonderful! There was not a single slow scene! This book had the perfect mix of world building, character development and rich content that were tied beautifully with a unique form of writi ...more

Wow! This book was awesome. I really enjoyed the characters and their development. I was completely drawn in by the story and torn in so many directions as I tried to know who to root for, who to ‘ship’, and who was bad. I will definitely read more by this author.

If you want to feel like your life is dependant on how a story turns out then read this book!

It took me a while to get into this book. In fact, I almost just gave up reading it a few times, but I felt like I owed it to the author to finish it. I’m glad I did because it was very entertaining and stressful at the same time. I always enjoy dystopian stories. I would say that this was a combination of “Divergent” and “The Hunger Games”. There’s the heroine who at first can’t do anything right, but then becomes this strong, fighting machine. There were a few times when I thought I might not ...more

I'm a big fan of strong female protagonists, and the character of Caitlin Feral is a great addition to literary heroines who kick butt. Her love interest, Bradie, manages to be a brat, but sweet at the same time. And her unlikely best friend, nerdy and socially awkward Normand, always finds a way of holding his own (I would love to say more, but no spoilers!). "I Want Superpowers" has plenty of satisfying twists and unexpected turns, set in an interesting dystopian world that I hope the author w ...more

This is a book with superheroes but not about superheroes. While this book is listed in the YA category it’s written for everyone that loves a good story. The characters are well developed and each with their own part to play. The world building is very sophisticated as the story develops. The plot has multiple threads that are all brought together into a satisfying ending. I recommend this book to all readers that enjoy a good sci-fi story as well as those of us that love themselves some superh ...more

Received as a review copy, this is an honest review. Catlin desperately wants to be a part of the select few that lives the best life in a destroyed world. When her Testing Day comes... it doesn't go as Catlin thought it would; leaving her with a future as a Dreg. As Catlin discovers, her true place is more complicated and dangerous than she imaged. Brilliant, edgy and vividly written... a can't miss dystopian adventure, highly recommended. ...more

In grade two, I wrote a not-so-breathtaking poem for my school’s literary anthology. I've been a writer ever since. My experience includes writing/producing for CBC TV, a short film and reality stint at OUTtv, and penning some award-winning, bestselling novels.

I came out in my late teens and feeling like an outsider has deeply impacted my sensibility. I love writing that combines sass, heart, spec
