Bestselling author Sam Maggs brings the world of Nadia Van Dyne/the Unstoppable Wasp, her indomitable spirit and her genius friends to life in an all-new original YA novel, The Unstoppable Wasp: Built on Hope. The audiobook, along with the physical novel, are both now available!

Unstoppable Wasp: Built on Hope

Nadia Van Dyne is new to this. New to being a Super Hero, new to being a real friend and stepdaughter (to one of the founding Avengers, no less), new to running her own lab, and new to being her own person, far, far away from the clutches of the Red Room--the infamous brainwashing/assassin-training facility. She's adjusting well to all of this newness, channeling her energy into being a good friend, a good scientist, and a good Super Hero. It's taking a toll, though, and Nadia's finding that there are never quite enough hours in a day. So, when she's gifted a virtual assistant powered by the most cutting-edge A.I. technology that the world has to offer, Nadia jumps at the opportunity to "do less, experience more"-just like the advertisements say.

This thrilling adventure finds Nadia confronting her past as she tries to shape her future, and learning that sometimes the best way to effect big change is to think small-maybe even super small, Unstoppable Wasp-style. She'll need the help of her genius G.I.R.L. (Genius In action Research Labs) squad and found family to save herself and (not to be too dramatic) the entire world as we know it. Along the way, Nadia discovers that when she teams up with the people who love her the most, they're totally Unstoppable. Just another day in the life of your way, way above average teenage Super Hero.

Listen to an excerpt from the audiobook, narrated by Lisa Cordileone, above, and read the accompanying text below!

In the excerpt, discover Nadia's refuge--the only place she could truly be alone--her lab, the Crystal Palace, fashioned after the Crystal Palace from Sailor Moon.
