Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book via the author/publisher in exchange for my honest review and participation in a virtual book tour event hosted by Providence Book Promotions.
For three middle-aged women in the suburbs of Cleveland, the issues seemed compelling but relatively conventional: sending a child off to college, dealing with a marriage gone stale, feeling “invisible.” But changes were coming . . . and not the predictable ones. Because Margie, Katherine, and Abra are feeling a new kind of power inside of them – literally. Of all the things they thought they might have to contend with as they got older, not one of them considered they’d be exploding a few gender roles by becoming superheroes.
At once a delightful and surprising adventure and a thoughtful examination of a woman’s changing role through life’s passages, THE SUPER LADIES is larger-than-life fiction at its very best.
My Book Review:
What would you do if you unexpectedly received superpower abilities? Would you rise up and learn how to use them for a greater good?
In The Super Ladies by Susan Petrone, forty-seven-year-old best friends Margie, Katherine, and Abra are living conventional lives and dealing with personal issues mixed in with the beginning of menopausal changes. But when a science fair project unexpectedly goes wrong and explodes liquified tofu slime all over them, these ladies discover that they suddenly feel different ... a little off ... and have acquired unique internal superpowers! They have new abilities of indestructible strength, invisibility, and heat that can make a difference, so they decide to harness their powers and use them as crime-fighting superheroes in the Cleveland suburbs... Katherine as Indestructa, Abra as Shadow, and Margie as The Schvitz ... The Super Ladies!
This was such a fun read that definitely peaked my interest. Who wouldn't love to have a superpower?! I really enjoyed following Katherine, Margie, and Abra as they discovered their superpower abilities and learned to use them for a greater good. As these ladies intertwined their personal lives and the changes that come with menopause, it was really cool to see them rediscover themselves and gain a new found role in their lives that gave them a new sense of self-confidence. The individual superhero activities that they embarked on made me smile, but when they went on the Super Ladies adventure, I couldn't help but laugh-out-loud at the situations that they got themselves into. I enjoyed their escapades so much that I wanted to read more ... maybe a sequel will be in the works?
The Super Ladies is a wonderful women's fiction story that is amusing, uplifting, and empowering. This is the kind of story that makes menopause and the changes that come with it seem a little bit easier to embrace ... it makes you wish that you could have your very own internal superpower!
