Cora Saros is trying her best to join the family business of theft and intergalactic smuggling. Unfortunately, she's a total disaster. After landing herself in prison following an attempted heist gone wrong, she strikes a bargain with the prison warden: He'll expunge her record if she brings back a long-lost treasure rumored to grant immortality.

Cora is skeptical, but with no other way out, she assembles a crew from her cellmates—a disgraced warrior from an alien planet; a cocky pirate who claims to have the largest ship in the galaxy; and a glitch-prone robot with a penchant for baking—and take off after the fabled prize.

But the ragtag group soon discovers that not only is the too-good-to-be-true treasure very real, but they're also not the only ones on the hunt for it. And it's definitely a prize worth killing for.

Industry Reviews
Praise for The Good for Nothings:

With this starhopping romp, Banas (The Supervillain and Me) pits her eclectic band of larcenyminded misfits against a hostile universe, forcing them to come together as a makeshift family. ... The quirky characters, who are fleshed out by attributes such as tough Anders's constant flight sickness and Elio's insistence on a favorite food despite his inability to eat, share an endearing earnestness. A fun, galaxyspanning treasure hunt with plenty of action and heart. Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Supervillain and Me:

Get ready for a wild ride in this zany, highaction thriller about good versus evil in the comicbookuniverse city of Morriston. ... Best of all, with a nod to gender equity, Abby does just fine helping to right her world in the climactic final scene, even without superpowers.
Booklist

Underneath all of the action and intrigue of this adventure lies an interesting premise: living amongst superheroes from the point of view of the ordinary and powerless. Banas adeptly keeps readers guessing about Iron Phantom's identity and provides plenty of romantic tension, which will satisfy even diehard fans of the genre.
School Library Journal

Hilarious ... A zany, actionpacked adventure ... Especially appealing is Abby discovering that her capabilities are different but equally as significant as the boys', with neither spandex nor superpowers necessary.
