Jamie woke up two years ago in an empty apartment with no memory and only a few clues to who he might be, and also with the power to read other people's memories. In the meantime, he's become the Mind Robber, holding up banks for quick cash. Similarly, Zoe is searching for her past, and using her new extraordinary abilities of speed and strength...to deliver fast food. And occasionally beat up bad guys, if she feels like it.
When the two meet in a memory-loss support group, they realize they are each other's best chance at discovering what happened to them. The quest will take them deep into a medical conspiracy that is threatening to spill out and wreak havoc on their city, and maybe the country. As the two get past their respective barriers, they'll realize that their friendship is the thing that gives them the greatest power.
"Brimming with hope, goodwill, and friendship goals, We Could Be Heroes is the Thor: Ragnarok of superhero fiction."
—Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars Phasma
“Sweet, sincere, and sure to see you sob, We Could Be Heroes is the almost-super hero story we all need right now.“
—Sam Maggs, bestselling author of The Unstoppable Wasp: Built on Hope
"We Could Be Heroes is a potent team-up of terrific characters, unusual ideas, and a ton of heart. It's everything you want in a superhero story."
—Jackson Ford, author of The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind
“We Could Be Heroes by Mike Chen is part daring superhero adventure, part mystery that will keep you on the edge of every page-turn. Jamie and Zoe are delightfully flawed and charmingly relatable despite their extraordinary gifts. If you’ve ever wanted to dive deeply into the minds of superheroes and villains, and have a marvelous time doing it, this is the book for you.” —Amanda Deibert, author of Wonder Woman ‘77 and DC Super Hero Girls
