“Simple, predictable, and great. A teenage girl with powers she doesn’t understand, and a past she can’t remember. There’s plenty of clues to suggest an organization of sinister adults somewhere, but Wasserman creates just enough doubt to keep the unraveling process exciting.
JD has fairly standard “Super-Dangerous When Cornered” syndrome. She follows a standard track of power self-awareness: cue the series opening title. Bonus mystery: JD has very targeted amnesia. She knows all sorts of facts and common sense, but she can’t remember any of her personal history. Then there’s the very convenient outcast boy who takes JD’s side, and assures her she’s not crazy.
That’s the foundation for plenty of well-written psycho-sci-fi action. This story moves so quickly that my plot guesses were resolved long before I could get smug about them. ”
