Publisher's Summary

Summer's over, and Connor Connolly is headed back to school to start junior year. But with metabands falling from the sky, the world has changed overnight, and now there are thousands of new metahumans. Just like regular humans, not all metahumans are using their new powers for good.
Now, Connor's not only dealing with the pressures of being a super-human and training with his mentor, Midnight, but also has to balance relationships with the people he cares for most - people who find themselves on different sides of the fence when it comes to their feelings about the new metahumans and the impact they're having on everyone else's lives.
As the world struggles to adjust to the events of the past few months, Connor's alter ego, Omni, works with The Agency to apprehend law-breaking metahumans, and detain them at the Silver Island Meta Detention Facility. When he's recruited for a job assisting the government agency with disarming one of the most powerful and secretive metas in Bay View City, he never expects the devastation of that mission or the effect it will have on both humans and metas. Is Connor capable of becoming the hero he wants to be?

Ugh...

I was so frustrated by nearly every thought decision by the main protagonist and his prattling. I just wanted to thump him again and again and again. I wanted to wail on him for being such a putz. He didn't handle anything well. He cares more about his privacy than he does about actually saving people. This seemed less about a coming of age story with supers as the opportune times to be a hero who wants credit but "doesn't do it for the credit" I am not sure if I am getting book three.... on the one hand I want to see if it's actually better and less "meh" but at the same time. Connor makes me so angry! Not a case of what I think should happen compared to what happens but come ON. The whole debacle with his gf. And how he managed his time with her and his hobby was just dumb. Then he is surprised why she doesn't want to be with the scat for brains mp and then the author makes it out that she's actually pretty cool that he's such a flake. Suddenly taking a strong female lead and breaking her 1950 American pop culture style. Now go make me a martini sweetheart while I barbecue a steak in the back yard. Fuck off.
