If you can survive being 15, you're a superhero

At her quinceanera (the celebration of a young woman's 15th birthday), seemingly-ordinary Lupe discovers that she is, in fact, a superhero. One catch: Her powers only last for that 15th year. Lupe's voice -- that of a frazzled, excited, skeptical hero -- is perfectly pitched, and an intergenerational connection with her grandmother gives the book a splash of sincere sentimentality. The illustrations are bright, rich and delicious, filled with an energy befitting Lupe's thrilling, unusual circumstances. This is a 15-issue graphic novel series, available on hoopla digital for immediate checkout.
