Girl on the Tor
TOR.COM "BURNING GIRL"
Does it make someone a monster? Here are five of my fave YA girls with superpowers who answer these questions in different ways. In this richly constructed fantasy world, Adelina is the survivor of a blood fever that has left her and other children with varying superpowers. Adelina has also been raised by an abusive father determined to exploit his daughter and her powers however he can.
Adelina treads the line between superhero and super-villain throughout the series and reminds me very much of Catwoman who had year-old me rooting for her in Batman Returns. Juliette can kill with a touch and she considers herself a monster. She lives in a dystopian society run by a government called the Reestablishment who offers to let Juliette out of the asylum——if she agrees to use her ability to torture for them on demand.
The question of who the real monster is becomes a recurrent theme throughout the novel and, like with Adelina, the reader becomes extremely invested in Juliette as she learns to define her own identity. Probably because I not so secretly want to be recruited into one. In Hunting Lila , our heroine has been hiding the fact that she can move objects with her mind.
Dun dun dun. I love stories where the protagonist has the proverbial carpet pulled out from underneath them, forcing them to question everything they thought was true. Lila is headstrong and relatable as she learns more about her own power and the motivations of the people in her life. Set in the year , the world inhabited by the protagonist, Zel, is one where genetic modification has run amok and extraordinary abilities are sold on the black market. Reese is slightly rude and ignorant of Tor's affections, although she still displays that she loves him. A common habit between the two is Tor telling Reese to put her hair back, so he can see her eyes, but Reese dislikes him doing this.
