Superpowers




A brilliant, darkly funny debut what happens when a group of college kids wake to discover their ordinary lives have just taken an extraordinary turn...

A party in a college flat in May 2001. A case of dodgy home-brewed beer. A violent storm. Next day: the mother of all hangovers. What would you do if you the morning after the night before brought a banging head, a raging thirst… Oh, and your very own superpower?

Meet the All-Stars: Harriet (invisibility), Charlie (the ability to read minds), Caroline (flight), Mary-Beth(super-strength) and Jack (faster than a speeding… well, you know). Determined to become costumed crime-fighters, but baffled by the lack of super-villains to tackle, the quintet soon finds that the ramifications of their new powers are more complicated than they anticipated, and that humans (even themselves) are much more fragile than they'd realised. And all the while the clock ticks down to one day in September 2001…
