Synopsis: An extraordinary and emotional adventure about unlikely friends and the power of choosing who you want to be.
Jamie woke up in an empty apartment with no memory and only a few clues to his identity, but with the ability to read and erase other people’s memories—a power he uses to hold up banks to buy coffee, cat food and books.
Zoe is also searching for her past, and using her abilities of speed and strength…to deliver fast food. And she’ll occasionally put on a cool suit and beat up bad guys, if she feels like it.
When the archrivals meet in a memory-loss support group, they realize the only way to reveal their hidden pasts might be through each other. As they uncover an ongoing threat, suddenly much more is at stake than their fragile friendship. With countless people at risk, Zoe and Jamie will have to recognize that sometimes being a hero starts with trusting someone else—and yourself. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: I'm a sucker for books that contain people with powers. I also love books of unlikely pairs teaming up. It's just always really fun to read. We Could Be Heroes was a really entertaining read, it had me flipping the pages. I liked our main characters of Jamie and Zoe. I enjoyed them trying to find out the mystery of their memory loss and the truth about themselves. I had a good time reading this.
Jamie and Zoe use their powers to benefit themselves sometimes. They tend to keep their heads down and try to make their money. Jamie uses his power to skirt the law. Zoe sometimes uses her power for good. Both of them have a lot of questions about their pasts though. They can't remember and they need to find out. I really enjoyed the journey of them figuring it out. I also love a good team up, and I feel like Zoe and Jamie were a good team up.
I enjoyed the writing. I was never bored with this story. It was a great way to pass the time. I'd definitely recommend giving it a read if it sounds like something you'd enjoy.
