Praise

"Schwartz strikes the right balance between vicarious superhero adventure and thoughtful reflection on the hidden costs of being a good Samaritan"
—Carl Hays, Booklist

"A book for everyone who’s ever wondered what superpower would be most fun or whether Batman or Superman would win in a fight. (And for everyone else who’s ever wondered what made comic books so much fun.) David J. Schwartz has written a first novel with superpowers, smarts, and heart to spare. If you’ll forgive a lame pun in the service of a swell book: Bookstore patrons, online browsers — may the Schwartz be with you.
—Kelly Link, author of Stranger Things Happen and Magic for Beginners

"A thoughtful and convincing blend of magic and realism. I believed in these ordinary, recognizable college students with their extraordinary abilities. As their powers change and fail them (and vice versa), Superpowers tells us a story both soaring and sober."
—Karen Joy Fowler, New York Times bestselling author of The Jane Austen Book Club and Wit’s End
