The Memory of Things by Gae Polisner

The Memory of Things
Sixteen year old Kyle was in school when the first of the Twin Towers was hit by an airplane.  On his way home, he sees what turns out to be a girl, covered with ash and debris and missing her memory.  He takes her home and cares for her and his uncle, a police officer who had been injured and is in a wheelchair as he recovers.  Kyle's father is a first responder.  The story is touching and moving and inspirational. 

Worm (Parahumans #1) by Wildbow, J.C. McCrae

Worm (Parahumans, #1)
This is a very very, very, very long book. My son listened to the podcast and had me read the book. It is a good story, but very, very, very long. I enjoyed the various capes and their powers and the many plot twists. I skimmed through some of the long fight scenes.
