Mighty Odds (The Odds Series #1)
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 - and mighty odd - superpowers. Martina can change her eye color; 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. Starring a diverse group of kids, this series' multiple narrators make for a quirky, contemporary read that tackles identity and stereotypes. Praised widely, Ignatow's characters have been called "very real" by the New York Times and "completely convincing" by the New Yorker.
Amy Ignatow is the author/illustrator of the acclaimed series The Popularity Papers. She is a graduate of Moore College of Art and Design and lives in Philadelphia with her husband and their children.
