The Brokenhearted by Amelia Kahaney

Title: The Brokenhearted

Author: Amelia Kahaney

Publisher: HarperTeen

Expected Publishing 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.

A ballerina turned superhero with a bionic heart plus a dark family secret, sounds just amazing. I love books where a main character is not who she thought she was.

    • Same here. They almost lost me with ballerina but the superhero vibe plus bionic anything sounds really cool.
