New superhero Gail Godwin, the one and only Hostage Girl, is in big trouble: her nemesis Chelsea is loose, someone close to her is dead, and everybody thinks Gail did it. To make matters worse, Davenport Industries has thrown her into a prison that just happens to be full of the very same supervillains who used to kidnap her on an almost daily basis.
Outside, things aren't going all that great either. There's a conspiracy that runs all the way to the bedrock of the superhero community, and it's affecting everybody Gail loves. With her friends in the crosshairs, it's up to her to escape and get to the bottom of things. Subterfuge, crime-fighting, and running away from everybody you know should be a cinch, right?
Wrong. Gail faces off against hero and villain alike just to stay alive, and you know what they say about supervillains. If you can't beat them…join them.
Such a great book! I enjoyed it so much-such a great sequel, picking up so quickly after the first book's cliffhanger ending which was just utterly mean and just being so un-freaking-believably awesome!
I finished the first book 2 days ago. And then it was an impatient wait to read this book, and I, a college student, almost broke and bought this book, multiple times. I held out for the review copy, but I had the excerpt on the publisher's site to tide me over, which without, would've been pretty evil!
This book explained a lot of the mysteries from the last book. Like the cancer. and Dr. Mobius, and all that was going on there. And who Chelsea is, which was a bit of a personal story, which made it all the more better! The mystery of the Guy and Sam's sister is still there!
I just loved how everything came together, once we knew who the bad guy was, things came together, and that was just so fantastic to read! And that it was left open for a 3rd book, what with the mysteries still out there, plus that ending of having to room with her!
Yeah, absolutely loved this book, it was just so fantastic, and I would really, really love a 3rd book, and more, because so far, this series has been utterly fantastic, and I want to read more!

Lexie Dunne is a woman of many masks, all of them stored neatly in a box under her bed. By day a mild-mannered technical writer and by night an adventuress and novelist, she keeps life interesting by ignoring it and writing instead. She hails from St. Louis, home of the world’s largest croquet game piece, and SUPERHEROES ANONYMOUS is her professional debut into the world of caped crusaders, a journey that started when her father took her and her brother to see The Rocketeer.
Getting her to return a phone call is impossible. You'd have better luck sticking a Dr Pepper under a propped up box and waiting nearby, string in hand.
