"Cape is a book with something for everyone--codes to crack, villains to vanquish, and a trio of superheroes who just might save the world. An absolutely original story, filled with so much excitement that the pages practically turn themselves." --Frances O'Roark Dowell, Edgar Award winning author of Dovey Coe

"A one-two punch of heroism and fun!" --Ingrid Law, Newbery Honor winner and New York Times bestselling author of Savvy

"Josie, Mae, and Akiko aren't just the friends and superheroes we need today, they're the friends and superheroes we need to be today. These girls rock!" --Liesl Shurtliff, New York Times bestselling author of the Time Castaways trilogy

"Kate Hannigan does more than write a rip-roaring girls' adventure story. She brings back to life real women who were real superheroines . . . along with some sadly forgotten but wonderful fictional superheroines who predated Wonder Woman. I can't wait for Book Two!" --Trina Robbins, author of Babes in Arms, Women in Comics During the Second World War
