YA Guy Hosts... Kai Strand, author of POLAR OPPOSITES

Today on YA Guy, Kai Strand, author of many books including the forthcoming POLAR OPPOSITES, Book 2 of her SUPER VILLAIN ACADEMY series, takes to the streets to hear what people think about heroes and villains. Take it away, Kai!

Hi everyone! I’m Kai Strand, author of the Super Villain Academy series. I’m here to pose a VERY important question. But first let’s talk about Supers.

Top Reasons to be a Hero:

You know people worship you
You look good in tights
You never lack a date to an awards banquet in your honor

Top Reasons to be a Villain:

You never have to consider the consequences of your actions
You never lack the comforts of life – since you just take whatever you want
Girls LOVE a bad boy

So now I ask you:

Hero or Villain?

I’ve taken to the streets to find out what people think:

Polar Opposites: Super Villain Academy, Book 2 coming June 2014

The supers are balanced. All’s well in the super world. Right? When dogs drag Oceanus away, Jeff learns the supers are so balanced, they no longer care to get involved. The only one who seems to care is Oci’s ex-villain, ex-boyfriend, Set. With Jeff’s own powers unbalanced and spiraling out of control, he wonders if they'll find Oci before he loses control completely--and if they’ll find her alive.

About the author:

When her children were young and the electricity winked out, Kai Strand gathered her family around the fireplace and they told stories, one sentence at a time. Her boys were rather fond of the ending, “And then everybody died. The end.” Now an award winning children’s author, Kai crafts fiction for kids and teens to provide an escape hatch from their reality. With a selection of novels for young adult and middle grade readers and short stories for the younger ones, Kai entertains children of all ages, and their adults.
