Superheroes are all about the crime fighting. Take down the bad guy, take out the ones making life harder for everyone. But sometimes we need to see the other side. Sometimes we need to cross the fence and look at it from the point of view,,,of the criminals.
Hold Me Like A Breath- Tiffany Schmidt: Told from the point of view of the daughter of a major crime family in the business of organ transplants, HMLAB is a nerve-wracking experience in which you never know what's going to happen- or who's going to lose their lives in the precarious world they live in.

Birthright series- Gabrielle Zevin: All These Things I've Done, Because it is My Blood, In the Age of Love and Chocolate. Set in a future where chocolate is impossible to acquire, this series tells the story of a daughter of a chocolate crime mogul in New York City and their efforts to avoid the scrutiny of the authorities. You can find them at the library here.
These two- one a series that has just begun, one that has been finished- are great examples of what it feels like to be on the other side, to be on the side of the criminals and never really know what's going to happen next in their dangerous world. They're great, believe me. But beware the harsh judges...
