Summary:

The super hero book you need to read right now!

"An enjoyable, exciting, and action-packed read… at its core, just fun.” –Associated Press

An extraordinary and emotional adventure about unlikely friends and the power of choosing who you want to be.

Jamie woke up in an empty apartment with no memory and only a few clues to his identity, but with the ability to read and erase other people’s memories—a power he uses to hold up banks to buy coffee, cat food and books.

Zoe is also searching for her past, and using her abilities of speed and strength…to deliver fast food. And she’ll occasionally put on a cool suit and beat up bad guys, if she feels like it.

When the archrivals meet in a memory-loss support group, they realize the only way to reveal their hidden pasts might be through each other. As they uncover an ongoing threat, suddenly much more is at stake than their fragile friendship. With countless people at risk, Zoe and Jamie will have to recognize that sometimes being a hero starts with trusting someone else—and yourself.

    Would you still be the same person if you could blank state yourself? Chen explores this idea in his fast-paced superhero adventure. The story revolves around an unexpected friendship between villainous Jamie Sorenson (aka Mind Robber) and vigilante Zoe Wang (aka Throwing Star). After meeting at Memory Loss & Dementia Support Group, they discover they lost memory around the same time, two years ago. Zoe wants to learn about her past, Jamie wants to rob enough money to fly away to the Caribbean with his cat. They’re also dorks with no idea of what they’re doing. I liked Chen’s lighthearted take on a hero/villain origin story. Zoe and Jamie’s interactions are endearing and funny. The story has enough twists to keep the reader’s attention. Unfortunately, the plot is rather thin and the motivations of bad guys remain unconvincing. All told, a solid and entertaining read, but not the one I’ll remember for a long time. Narration: I’ve listened to the audiobook. Emily Woe Zeller does a good job, especially for Zoe. Jamie, however, sounds like a victim of prolonged constipation. I had an issue with his voice but got used to it after a while.
