Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillains) by LaurieBoyleCrompton

In the spirit of the month of love, and to celebrate the birth of this site, I have chosen to feature this work for its coming-of-age story and totally kickass character. Life and love are tough, unpredictable, and it rarely seems like we actually get it right. But Blaze shows us that your best friend is yourself, and your greatest weapon is your mind.

The Story:

Blaze is tired of spending her life on the sidelines. All she wants is for Mark the Soccer Stud to notice her. Not as Josh’s weird sister who drives a turd-brown minivan. And not as that nerdy girl who draws comics. What she gets is her very own arch-nemesis.

Name: Mark Deninger,  aka Mark the Shark

Occupation: Soccer star and all-around lady killer

Relationship status: Serial dater

Group Affiliation: No loyalty

Known Superpowers: Anti-girlfriend force field, breaking hearts

Mark may have humiliated Blaze supervillain-style, but what he doesn’t know is how geek girls always get revenge.

I originally found this on Wattpad, but it is now also available on Amazon Kindle and Goodreads! Congratulations Blaze!
