Teaser Tuesday (39): Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillians) by Laurie Boyle Crompton

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser comes from Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillians) by Laurie Boyle Crompton. I'm really enjoying this one! Blaze's passion for comics really comes across in the writing and makes the story so fun to read, even if you're not a comic geek girl like Blaze.

He and I go to the same school, but we may as well inhabit separate universes. Our lives are so different, it's like I'm stuck with Batman and Superman in the DC World, while Mark is partying in the Marvel Universe with evert other worthwhile character.

{Blaze, Chapter 1} 

Synopsis of Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillians):

Blaze is tired of spending her life on the sidelines, drawing comics and feeling invisible. She's desperate for soccer star Mark to notice her. And when her BFF texts Mark a photo of Blaze in sexy lingerie, it definitely gets his attention. After a hot date in the back of her minivan, Blaze is flying high, but suddenly Mark's feelings seem to have been blasted by a freeze-ray gun, and he dumps her. Blaze gets her revenge by posting a comic strip featuring uber-villain Mark the Shark. Mark then retaliates by posting her "sext" photo, and, overnight, Blaze goes from Super Virgin Girl to Super Slut. That life on the sidelines is looking pretty good right about now...
