This book. THIS BOOK. I loved it so much.

So Danny is a girl who is next to the superhero Dreadnought when he dies, and he passes her the mantle, making her the new Dreadnought. This also makes her a girl, because Danny is trans, and she hadn't told anyone about it yet. So now she has a perfect body...and her life changes rather drastically.

Daniels wrote an excellent superhero story (politics, shades of grey, the usual), but she also wrote an incredible story about identity and change, and it was a delight to read. Danny's family is unsupportive. Her best friend thinks he can date her. Her new colleagues are, shall we say, surprised. And Danny is going to face all of them, because she finally, finally can.

This is a series (yaaaaaaaay!), and I'm super pumped for book 2. I highly, highly recommend it.
