The Mighty Odds

Author(s): Amy Ignatow

Childrens

What do you get when you mix a sci-fi nerd, a cartoonist, a social outcast, and the most popular girl in school with a mysterious bus crash? Some very specific superpowers: Martina can change her eye colour; Nick can teleport four inches to the left; Farshad can develop super strength, but only in his thumbs; and Cookie can read minds, when those minds are thinking about directions. They are, in short, the just okayish heroes. Starring a diverse group of kids with (very limited) superpowers, this series' multiple narrators make for a quirky, pitch-perfect read that tackles identity and stereotypes. Ignatow's characters have been praised widely, as "very real" by the New York Times and "completely convincing" by the New Yorker.
