Just Call Me SuperheroRussian born Alina Bronsky whose Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine was named a Best Book of the Year by Publishers Weekly and a Favorite Read of the Year by both The Huffington Post and The Wall Street Journal returns with a startling new novel about the difficult work of self acceptance After an encounter with a dog in which he was worsted seventeen year old Marek begins attending a support group f I had a hard time rating this book It fits anywhere between 2 and 3 stars for me It is the story of a 17 year old boy whose face is mutilated in a dog attack and is sent to group therapy for kids with disabilities There he falls in love with a girl in a wheel chair I know what you are thinking The Fault in Our Stars?
