Some people are extraordinary. Some are just extra. Nick Bell? Not extraordinary. Not unless ADHD is a superpower. But he is the most popular fanfiction writer in the Extraordinaries fandom. After a chance encounter with Shadow Storm, Nova City's mightiest hero (and Nick's biggest crush), Nick sets out to make himself extraordinary. And he'll do it with or without the reluctant help of Seth Gray, Nick's best friend (and maybe the love of his life). Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl meets Merissa Meyer's Renegades in TJ Klune's YA debut, The Extraordinaries , a queer coming-of-age story about a fanboy and the heroes he loves.
