Book 2 of the Morriston Superheroes trilogy. Read book 1 - Men in Tights - first to avoid spoilers.
Being a superhero is hard work.
Being a superhero without any powers is even harder.
After the invasion of nanotechnology on the city of Morriston, resulting in the destruction of his superpowers, Connor Hamilton's life is painfully average. He has renounced his alter-ego Red Comet, he attends college classes while wearing a giant pair of glasses like some nerd, and he doesn't know how to talk to the pretty brunette in his public speaking course without humiliating himself. With reminders of his past life cropping up everywhere he looks, Connor Hamilton longs to reclaim his title as the city's most famous superhero but doesn't know where to start. Luckily, there is one man in Morriston who may be able to help...for a price.
For Abby Hamilton, life is hardly any easier. Rylan's rise to superhero stardom is beginning to put a strain on their relationship, and the unanswered note from the enigmatic faceless super is on her mind at all hours of the day and night. Add to that a new crew of supervillains bent on invading the city who won't leave Connor alone and Abby barely has time to think. Rylan firmly believes enlisting the help of the mystery hero is the key to taking back Morriston once and for all, but Abby doesn't want anything to do with such a strange man. Besides, his help may not be enough.
With time running low and trouble at every turn, Abby Hamilton must face her most difficult challenge yet: What do you do when the only life you've ever known...has been a lie?
