I'm pretty sure Charlie Jane Anders has a number of superpowers, but her most super superpower is, in my opinion ... her imagination. You just wouldn't believe the stories that come out of her. Read "Six Months, Three Days," for example, a love story about two clairvoyants that will leave you profoundly grateful you can't see the future.
Her new novel, All the Birds in the Sky, is about the friendship/romance/enmity -- let's call it the frenemy-ship -- between a girl with magical powers and a boy who can time travel (though only two seconds at a time and only in one direction). They might be the cause of the end of the world -- and/or they might rescue all of humanity from destruction.
There's a character in the book, Dorothea, who works magic by telling long, involved stories. On page 242, she tells a story that enables a car to travel 300 miles per hour. Dare I suggest that Dorothea is a stand-in for Charlie Jane Anders, and the reader gets to ride in that car?
If you liked The Magicians by Lev Grossman, I can almost guarantee you'll like this. If you like science fiction or fantasy, try it. Read it before September 2016 because if all goes well the author will come to CC and you can meet her!
