Praise for Heroine Worship Mixing fun superhero shenanigans with great teamwork and a well-developed (and hot) romance, Heroine Worship is a worthy sequel to one of my favorite books from last year. I am so ready for book 3 now. --Kirkus Reviews The Heroine Complex series continues to be one of the most fun and thoughtful takes on the superhero genre. By telling a story from Aveda Jupiter's perspective -- or rather, Annie Chang's -- Kuhn adds more layers of complexity, honesty and heart to this series. --RT Reviews (top pick) Kuhn follows Heroine Complex with a thoughtful look into the often crowded and complex mind of superheroine Aveda Jupiter, aka Annie Chang, in this roller-coaster romantic urban fantasy. --Publishers Weekly In Annie, Sarah Kuhn writes a reminder to women like us who feel too much, who do too much, who want so much, and who have no idea how to manage all of those things at once. She is richly drawn and explored, and given agency to be all that she is. --BookRiot Annie's struggles to merge her kick-ass Aveda persona with her everyday Annie Chang tendencies can be hilariously slapstick, while her emotional growth provides its own tearjerker moments. --Library Journal Sarah Kuhn balances the (often) light and (frequently) funny superhero action tone with two very believable, complicated main characters.... Kuhn puts us inside Aveda's head to show us what it feels like to be the hero that everyone loves, but a person who's hard to like. There are very few true jerks in Kuhn's big-hearted (if snarky) universe. --B&N Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog In short, here's what I love about this series: healthy relationships, dang good romance, powerful female friendships, leading ladies of color who are aware of the power of this own image, incredible honesty, downright perfect writing about what it is to be human, and the most dynamic duo since... ever. --Readcommendations Sarah Kuhn's San Francisco is a city worth visiting as many times she cares to treat us to superheroine adventures. Her voice is not only fresh, witty and vibrant; it's very necessary. --Writers After Dark
