Miriam's grandfather created the TomorrowMen, a famous comic fandom, but her family reaps none of the benefits of the comic's popularity or the upcoming film because her family was forced to sign away the rights of ownership many years ago. When Miriam meets Weldon, the son of the current owner of the comics, she wants to dislike him. Soon she and Weldon form a friendship, and eventually their relationship grows into something more. Can their relationship withstand a family rivalry lasting for decades, or will they be forced to go their separate ways?
I enjoyed this book overall, especially because it was about geeks who love comics. The characters were realistic and easy to sympathize with, and the relationships addressed were well drawn. I loved reading about Miriam's relationship with her parents and siblings. They seemed like such a fun, quirky family to be around. Miriam and Weldon's relationship was sweet, though they did have their disagreements. I would have liked to see more illustrations in the book. The comics on the cover were well done and they would have been a great addition to the story. I didn't care for the profanity. It seemed quite excessive for the subject matter and the overall lighthearted tone of the book. Other than that, I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys YA contemporary fiction and superhero comics.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. I also purchased a copy of the book from Amazon. A positive review was not required, and all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
