Synopsis

In a world of superheroes and villains, Gavin McArthur feels like more of a shell than a person even after he transfers to a school for kids who are likely to soon posses an Alter form, a form that grants the user super powers and a different appearance. But what do you to do when your Alter form represents an uncomfortable truth about yourself that you're not prepared to face?

      Best super hero story I've ever read. Can't wait for more chapters.

      I've had a lot of feelings about this over the time I have read it. It feels like a slow-burn? I think the plot progresses on the slow side compared to YA novels. Honestly though I could stand to reread again without having to wait for a chapter at a time XP.

      the protagonist is a delight to journey with. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to have their feelings run through a gentle gauntlet of pain and reward. It stays fairly low pressure anxiety for the large part and the setting lends it to something I experience as a fresh take on the superhero genre. Somewhat like "the incredibles" in its handling of a society with a power imbalance.

      I think anyone who has felt like their life is a lie dissolving like tissue paper in a thunderstorm will understand this coming of age story.

      Hello! I've been keeping up with this story since "line of sight" was the most recent chapter, and I just really wanted to commend you for this story, because I absolutely love it to pieces! This is my favorite thing to read in years, and I love how all the things you seem to have taken inspiration from meld together. Probably my favorite [relatively] minor element is the descriptions of super speed and what being a speedster is like from their perspective. It feels like a consistent description of what it feels and looks like to move that fast and it's thrilling, and a big added strength of this being a novel rather than a manga/show/movie. I'm ecstatic whenever a new chapter releases and I'm always super excited for the next one. It's great how it always feels like everything is planned out and not just made up on the spot, so there's little to no inconsistencies. Keep up the good work, and I can't wait to find out what shenanigans gabs and co. Get up to as part 2 plays out. I'll definitely recommend this to some of my friends.
