Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillains) by Laurie Boyle Crompton (Feature & Giveaway)

Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillains) by Laurie Boyle Crompton.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult/Contemporary.
Publication: February 1st 2013 by Sourcebooks Fire.
Blaze is tired of spending her life on the sidelines.

All she wants is for Mark the Soccer Stud to notice her. Not as Josh's weird sister who drives a turd-brown minivan. And not as that nerdy girl who draws comics.

What she gets is her very own arch-nemesis.

Name: Mark Deninger, aka Mark the Shark
Occupation: Soccer star and all-around lady killer
Relationship Status: Serial dater
Group Affiliation: No loyalty
Known Superpowers: Anti-girlfriend force field, breaking hearts

Mark may have humiliated Blaze supervillian-style, but what he doesn't know is how geek girls always get revenge.

Most of you have probably already come across this book by now. I was pulled to it the second I saw the cover, and I've been lucky enough to receive an ARC via NetGalley!

Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillains) has been receiving special attention across blogs for its comic twist in the story and the artwork, which is fantastic! Thanks to Sourcebooks Fire, I'm going to be featuring one of the artworks today and also, giving away a copy of the book! Oh, and it's International :)

So without further delay, here you go!

When she was 17, Laurie Boyle Crompton painted her first car hot pink using 40 cans of spray paint. It dried really drippy but looked great when she was flying down the back roads of Butler, PA where she grew up. She now lives near NYC in Queens, but maintains a secret identity in New Paltz, NY where she and her family can often be found tromping through the forest.
