The Broken Hearted by Amelia Kahaney
Publication Date: October 8, 2013
A teenage girl is transformed into a reluctant superhero and must balance her old life with the dark secret of who she has become.
Prima ballerina Anthem Fleet is closely guarded by her parents in their penthouse apartment. But when she meets the handsome Gavin at a party on the wrong side of town, she is immediately drawn into his dangerous world. Then, in a tragic accident, Anthem falls to her death. She awakes in an underground lab, with a bionic heart ticking in her chest. As she navigates her new life, she uncovers the sinister truth behind those she trusted the most, and the chilling secret of her family lineage…and her duty to uphold it.
The Dark Knight meets Cinder in this gripping and cinematic story of heartbreak and revenge. From Alloy Entertainment, this inventive new superhero story is sure to captivate any reader.
OMGoodness!!! Dark Knight meets Cinder? Where do I sign up?! In the interest of not sounding like a total comic fan girl (that’s code for nerd) I’m just going to chalk my total need to read this book up to spectacularly placed words. Like: reluctant superhero and bionic heart.
This is what I am waiting for. What are YOU waiting for?
