I am very excited to announce that I will be taking part in Interlude Press’ blog tour of Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee. It is the lesbian superhero novel that you know that you have always wanted.
Welcome to Andover… where superpowers are common, but internships are complicated. Just ask high school nobody, Jessica Tran. Despite her heroic lineage, Jess is resigned to a life without superpowers and is merely looking to beef-up her college applications when she stumbles upon the perfect (paid!) internship—only it turns out to be for the town’s most heinous supervillain. On the upside, she gets to work with her longtime secret crush, Abby, who Jess thinks may have a secret of her own. Then there’s the budding attraction to her fellow intern, the mysterious “M,” who never seems to be in the same place as Abby. But what starts as a fun way to spite her superhero parents takes a sudden and dangerous turn when she uncovers a plot larger than heroes and villains altogether.
From the author of Seven Tears at High Tide, C.B. Lee, the super hero saga takes flight in September, from Duet Books.
I have really high hopes from Lee – this author is known for their inclusivity, particularly of bisexual characters. Given my disappointment with recent LGBT+ publications in this respect, I’m looking forward to reading some better representation! And, well…it is always nice to have LGBT+ novel that looks fun!
(Also you have to know that this is a scifi/fantasy novel – just from the fact that the protagonist has landed a PAID internship!)
I will be posting my full review on the 14th September – and I honestly can’t wait.
