For Amy Sturgess, life in the big city comes with trouble. Her marketing career is being derailed by a conniving coworker stealing her accounts. Her family crises range from her down-and-out brother running afoul of the law to her mother's growing affections for the house cats. And Amy's love life just flatlined thanks to an unexpected reunion with the one that got away--who's now engaged. When Xanax and therapy fail to relieve her stress, Amy does what any young woman in her position would do: She uses her superstrength, speed, flight, and ability to generate 750 volts from her hands to fight crime as the mysterious masked vigilante Starling. But while Starling is hailed as a superhero, will Amy remain a super-zero?

Amy Sturgess became a superhero crimefighter while in her teens. She's kept doing it while going through college and landing her dream job. Her secret life as Starling often sabotages her work life, though, and let's not even talk about relationships. Now things are getting even more complicated. The job is finally getting away from her. Her brother's trouble with the law may collide with her crimefighting. And the boyfriend that got away is back, but possibly not in a good way. This is the sweetest little book about trying to make life work, which all of us have trouble with even though we can't generate electricity with our hands.

Just read Empowered and/or Astro City instead.
