Publisher's Summary

"How dare you? I never asked for you to hunt me down!" No, Velma Martinez hadn't. But when you had once been Velveteen, child super-heroine and one of The Junior Super Patriots, West Coast Division, you were never going to be free, even if your only power was to bring toys to life. The Marketing Department would be sure of that.

So it all came down to this. One young woman and an army of misfit toys vs. the assembled might of the nine members of The Junior Super Patriots, West Coast Division who had come to take her down.

They never had a chance.

Velveteen lives in a world of superheroes and magic, where men can fly and where young girls can be abducted to the Autumn Land to save Halloween. Velma lives from paycheck to paycheck and copes with her broken-down car as she tries to escape from her old life.

It's all the same world. It's all real. And figuring out how to be both Velveteen and Velma is the biggest challenge of her life, because being super-human means you're still human in the end.

Join us as award-winning author Seanan McGuire takes us through the first volume of Velveteen's - and Velma's - adventure.

    "Very fun!"

    This book is so much fun! It's not really a novel, per se, but neither is it really a series of short stories as some readers claim. It definitely has a "serial" feel to each "chapter" though. This book reads more like a mix of superhero "info guide", flashbacks, and short current day vignettes revolving around Velma Martinez, "aka Velveteen". Whatever it is, it works. Or at least it worked for me. Light and fun, I found myself laughing on several occasions. Narrator Allison McLemore does a great job with all of the voices. If you like quirky superheroes and humorous writing, I'd give this a try. Definitely worth the audible credit or cash. Looking forward to the next Velveteen collection.

    "Good fun, original"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. It kept me engaged. Excruciating material mixed in with the fluffy fun. Light hearted mostly which is what I was looking for.


    Any additional comments?

    Very clever and amusing.

    Story
    "Didn't know what to expect, but liked it."

    I can't say I'm really into super hero stories. I like comics but books always seemed to have heroes you already know, and expect certain action from (then the story doesn't have them act that way). I found this much more enjoyable and different than I had thought it would be
