Summary
An action-packed series-starter perfect for fans of The Heroine Complex and Not Your Sidekick .

"I didn't know how much I needed this brave, thrilling book until it rocked my world. Dreadnought is the superhero adventure we all need right now."--Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the Sky

Danny Tozer has a problem: she just inherited the powers of Dreadnought, the world's greatest superhero. Until Dreadnought fell out of the sky and died right in front of her, Danny was trying to keep people from finding out she's transgender. But before he expired, Dreadnought passed his mantle to her, and those secondhand superpowers transformed Danny's body into what she's always thought it should be. Now there's no hiding that she's a girl.

It should be the happiest time of her life, but Danny's first weeks finally living in a body that fits her are more difficult and complicated than she could have imagined. Between her father's dangerous obsession with "curing" her girlhood, her best friend suddenly acting like he's entitled to date her, and her fellow superheroes arguing over her place in their ranks, Danny feels like she's in over her head.

She doesn't have time to adjust. Dreadnought's murderer--a cyborg named Utopia--still haunts the streets of New Port City, threatening destruction. If Danny can't sort through the confusion of coming out, master her powers, and stop Utopia in time, humanity faces extinction.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "A transgender teenager is transformed into her ideal self after being imbued with the powers of the world's greatest superhero in this thought-provoking first book in the Nemesis series. As the latest iteration of Dreadnought, 15-year-old Danielle is expected to train with the local team, the Legion Pacifica, until she's ready to become a full-fledged hero. Unfortunately, her parents would rather "cure" her and turn her back into Danny, and her reception among the other heroes is mixed at best. Danielle teams up with vigilante heroine Calamity to track down the previous Dreadnought's murderer, only to stumble upon a plan to destroy the human race. In an impressive debut, Daniels skillfully conveys Danielle's pain, confusion, and emotional complexity as she faces a host of detractors and conflicts. While Danielle's supernatural transformation comes off as an easy solution compared to journeys of real-world trans teenagers, the novel's comic-book trappings allow for a fascinating exploration of gender identity in a fantastical setting. Danielle's evolution from confused teen to confident hero is entertaining and inspiring. Ages 12-up. Agent: Saritza Hernandez, Corvisiero Agency. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
