A few months ago, I was running in and out of my local Barnes & Noble and a book caught my attention. I had absolutely zero time on my hands (my husband and kids were waiting for me in the car) but I stopped and picked up the book to take a look at it. Imagine my surprise when I read the back cover and found out that the story was about a girl who is the daughter of two superheroes. The girl does not have powers of her own and has to deal with what it means to the be the "normal" daughter of two larger than life super-powered beings.

Naturally, as a Superman fan, this intrigued me. There are a lot of Superman fanfics floating out there about kids that Clark Kent and Lois Lane have together (and probably a lot about kids that Wonder Woman and Superman have together, but I'd rather stick a fork in my eye than try to hunt those down). In every fic I've read, the kids always have super-powers. I never considered what the story would be like if the kid didn't have superpowers. Of course, if the kid's mother is Lois Lane, chances are that the kid won't feel too bad about it.

Maybe.

Anyway, I put the book down and made a mental note to download onto my Kindle later. But, as these things go, I couldn't remember the name of the book! Now, finally, I managed to hunt it down. It's called: After the Golden Age. This month is going to be insanely busy for me but I'm hoping I'll have enough time to read it.

Hey thanks. Definitely let us know how the read goes once you get the chance! I would be interested in reading it, just to see how the author handles the obvious (and non-obvious) situations that would pop up.
