Karma Girl by Jennifer Estep
Synopsis: A romantic super-hero farce in an alternate reality of modern-day America where superheros and ubervillains are real and every town has their own yin-yang pair. The story is from the perspective of a young female journalist who discovers her fiance and best friend in bed together AND finds out they're the superhero and ubervillain of the town. In a most excellent revenge, she ousts them in her newspaper and goes on to make a name for herself nationwide by uncovering the true identities of super-characters. She ends up in New York City and that's when the real fun starts.
Analysis: This book was great fun and well-written! I promptly bought my own copy and put the next Estep book on my must-read list.
