Worm is a superhero story that takes place in the modern day and primarily follows Taylor Hebert, a teenager with the power to control all bugs around her. It also features interlude chapters from other characters' points of view to better explore the themes and show context for various events. It's a deconstruction of many classical superhero tropes; it takes a bunch of standard setting conceits and tries to shape things so that they're a natural progression of events rather than simply something you have to accept The worldbuilding is phenomenal, the characters we meet are wonderfully complex and very human, the powers and underlying systems behind them are very interesting to see in action. The main character's journey as she struggles with situations too complex to be easily solved is one of my favorites throughout fiction. It's also a rather dark story, with themes of hopelessness and desperation being present for a lot of it. Character deaths, torture and things less family friendly than mere violence all happen in the story, though it's handled tastefully not done for the sake of shock value. It's not for everyone, but I would highly recommend it if any of the above sounds interesting to you.
