    Raised on comic books and classic novels, Leigh Ann developed an early love of science fiction and literature As an adult, she rediscovered her love for not only reading, but also writing the types of fiction that enchanted her as a teen Her debut novel, ONE, is about a girl with only half a superpower, the boy who makes her fly, and her struggle to make herself whole.Leigh Ann, her husband, and four children live in Columbus, Ohio When she s not immersed in the world of fiction, you can find her obsessing over the latest superhero movie or using her kids as an excuse to go out for ice cream again.


    I am a sucker for superhero novels, and I was intrigued by the author's marketing of this self-published novel. That's right, this is a self-published novel. Leigh Ann Kopans apparently found an agent, but the agent was unable to interest any publishers in this book, so Kopans decided to go the "indie" (I hate that disingenuous and misleading term) route and publish the book herself, with a professional cover.She should have spent a little more money on editing; in general, I found the book to b [...]

    DNF.Unpopular opinion time: I did not enjoy this book in the least. Although I won't say I hated it because that sounds too strong a statement. Rather I was just so.d. At one point during reading the book even went as far as making me all droopy-eyed and sleepy until I decided to put it down and go to bed.When I tell you that the first half of this book was filled with nothing but cheesy sappy insta-love, the first half of this book was filled with nothing but cheesy sappy insta-love. I mean for [...]

    I've noticed that there's a decided lack of superhero stories in YA, so this is a welcome change. If you love comic books and superheroes--along the lines of X-Men or Fantastic Four--definitely give this a try. Ms. Kopans has clearly put a lot of love and effort into packaging and editing ONE, and her hard work has really paid off.

    Actual rating: 3.5 starsOne is one of those self-published gems that I seem to always be hunting for. It’s not perfect, but it’s just really fun to read. It reminds me a lot of x-men, but with teens. The writing is decent, though, I do feel it was better in the second half, and the plot is pretty good. The anticipation was built just right and the climax did have me on the edge of my seat. Not to mention the cover is gorgeous, one of my favorites of 2013. If you enjoy superhero books, you’ [...]

    ONE was unlike anything I've ever read. I've been hearing about this book forEVER, so I definitely went into it with high expectations. I was not let down. To summarize my thoughts while reading, giving you an idea of what a great storyteller LeighAnn Kopens is, and how well she writes a scene Here's a thought that popped into my mind consistently--CONSISTENTLY--while reading: "Omg. I can't wait to see this movie!"Not every book has that special magic that makes you imagine it on the big screen [...]

    Plot: 5 stars Characters: 5 stars Style: 5 stars Pace: 5 stars I was a little hesitant about this book when I saw the concept. Super powers in YA have been done so much that it’s almost impossible to escape the tropes, and so much YA has felt predictable to me lately. But when both Becca and Trisha said it was awesome, I knew I had to give it a shot (They’re both amazing writers in their own rights, and thus far, haven’t steered me wrong on books). When Leigh Ann asked for people to volunt [...]

    Initial reaction: .I has disappoint.Review: I was so heavily distraught over how dumb this book turned out to be. I was almost not going to write a review after I saw some fracas where the author was trolling, but you know, chances are no one's gonna read this but if I can save someone from the incredibly frustrating experience that was reading this, than hey, I'll consider my job done.What I wanted out of this book? Superheroes! What this book gave me: a very confusing, convoluted mumbo jumbo q [...]

    Watch out for this one - one of my favorite boys in recent memory! Full review to come

    While this story is about superheroes, it wasn't about the X-men or Avengers-type of superhero. It is so much more about the superhero potential that we all have in us. And what better character to help us explore that potential than Merrin? She is a One, which means she has been given less of a potential in terms of her powers, relative to the Supers around her. But she perseveres and works toward her goals, and she is strong, determined, and incredibly independent; what she lacks in her second [...]

    I can't stop staring at this cover.

    One was a really fun read, for the most part. I wasn't expecting a super serious book, and I did think that One had the expected "superhero" vibe to it. It definitely reminded me of The Incredibles in places, with not-quite-believable but still pretty cool worldbuilding and characters. I especially liked the beginning - it was predictably light and fairly low-key, but still fun.In Kopans' world, set sometime in the not-so-distant future, there was some kind of accident involving radiation, resul [...]

    When I was younger, I had these recurring dreams of flight. Well, not so much flight as hovering, with limited ability to move any direction but up. This is what Merrin Grey can do, her one power, where two are needed to be considered Super. She's just a One. Leigh Ann Kopans debut is a fun read for anyone who enjoys superhero stories as much as I do. Give me humans evolving to have superpowers and I'm generally a happy girl.Kopans puts an interesting spin on the basic superhero formula through [...]

    0.25/5plot:in the world of tomorrow, people are divided into three categories:# normals# ones # supersthe protagonist merrin grey is, neither a 'normal' without any powers, nor a 'super' with two powers. she's smack in the middle, a 'one' that cannot control her ability. in the new school she is sent to, she finds her love interest and other stuff about herself that make her question everything she's learned so far in lifepression:i hate flat, mustachio-twirling villains and that is exactly what [...]

    I have read lots of books as a Bookseller at Barnes and Nobles. So when I come across one I love, I have to share! One was a great read, which I couldn't put down. Teenagers who have superpowers?! Cant beat that. It reminded me of Xmen meets Sky High. I fell in love with the characters, Merrin and Elias. When there are Supers who have two powers, Ones who have only one power and Normals who don't have any, you know a conflict with ensue. Merrin has only one power, she floats but she wants to fly [...]

    This book was super fun to read. Who doesn't love super powers? Seriously. And there was a lot of action at the tail end of the book. I'm hoping there will be a second installment- I'm attached to the characters and I need to know what happens next! :)

    There are so many sci-fi/dystopian books out there that I keep on thinking I've read them all. But then books like One come along and pull me into an entirely new world that is impossible not to love. Merrin Grey is a One, a girl who doesn't have two powers to be a Super, but only one useless power, making her a freak. Instead of being able to fly like she would if she were a Super, all Merrin can do is float. With her incredible intelligence along with her longing to fly, Merrin will do anythin [...]

    Disappointing. The premise was nice - as long as you weren't bothered by a total lack of sense in the 'science' - but it ended up being a rather by-the-numbers YA dystopian. Merrin was very unevenly drawn, even allowing for the fact that she was supposed to have all kinds of 'issues' from her years of being just a One. She bounced around from being mousy, super-angry, cool nerd, traumatised by a near-rape - oh, now *fine* about same (only took a sentence or two from bf, leading me to feel that t [...]

    I ADORED this book. The relationship between Merrin and Elias is so touching, and so real. One scene in particular (I won’t say which, as it’s a major spoiler) had me in tears. Merrin is an amazing character – feisty and independent with a wonderfully distinctive voice. Sometimes her stubbornness made me want to shake her, but at the same time, it only made me like her even more. And Elias… sigh. This was one of those books that, when I was away from it, was constantly at the back of my [...]

    2.5I would give this one 3 or 4? stars if the second half came first than the first half. Seriously, the first half was the cradle of insta-love civilization and when it comes to insta-love, it's a no-no for me though I admit that the first half conjured an important sense for the whole book, I mean it was probably a build-upm or something. I really wanted to abolish this but since I have an oath to myself to finish books I'm currently reading, I persisted. Yes, I did suffer a lot from this but [...]

    This book is fabulous. I adore Merrin. <3

    3.5 starsMerrin Grey lives in a world with two types of people in it: those with superpowers and those with none. People born with superpowers always have Two, because it's useless to be able to make fire without indestructibility. If you didn't have the latter, you'd burn yourself every time you tried to use your ability. Unforunately, Merrin falls into the little discussed in-between category of having One superpower, without it's essential mate. She can float about 3 feet off the ground, but [...]

    I bought this book forever ago and it has just been chilling on my e-reader for a while but this week I finally pulled it out and decided to give it a go. I can't say I actually enjoyed it but I did give it a try.The story is pretty generic. It is a few decades into the future where the world is changed because of a huge Uranium War that has caused some people to start having mutations. The story is centered around 16 year-old Merrin. She does have powers but only half the power that awesome mut [...]

    Merrin Grey is a One. In a world where a minority population of 'gifted' people has evolved to have superhuman abilities, being a One just isn't enough. What's the point of being able to float if you can't push the air around you to be able to fly begins with Merrin's transfer from the Super high school to 'Normal' Nelson High, having begrudgingly accepted that her second power will never manifest. Trapped between the Normal and Super worlds, Merrin yearns to become more, to turn Super and be ab [...]

    It wasn't too long ago I first stumbled upon Leigh Ann’s author blog and saw what she was working on. Her stories caught my attention and One stood out to me in particular. So fast forward a few months later to the news that One would soon be published - you can imagine I was pretty excited.It took me a little while to get into but that might have to do with me and the fact that I’m still slowly getting out of a book slump and not so much to do with the actual book itself. Once I settled dow [...]

    You guys like superheroes, right?You know you like superheroes.Unfortunately, it’s tough to come up with a new, original, not-in-a-graphic-format superhero story these days. (Trust me. I’m trying.) I mean, remember Sky High? Yeah. shudderNow, I need you to imagine Sky High for me. Take away all the lame cliches and the freaky guinea-pig shapeshifting. (Keep the prejudice against kids with stupid powers, you’ll need that.) Now add in a plausible government, some much more compelling charact [...]

    I was excited for this book. I pre-ordered two copies as soon as the release date was announced. I near bounced out of my skin when ARCs were given to the members of Team ONE. But all of this was pretty new for me because…I don’t go crazy over Young Adult. In fact, I hardly read any Young Adult (I know, I’m so boring). I don’t know if this is because I just exited my angsty teen years and I’m not that excited to revisit them, or what. Maybe it will change soon. If it does, it will be b [...]

    Also posted on my blog.When I began reading this I had huge huge expectations. And this book is self-published. Don't get me wrong, some self-published books are really good. This one was one of them, but sometimes books that aren't self-published are better, for some reason. This one was really good, but my expectations were too high. I read about half of it in about 3 days and I just couldn't read anymore and I took a break for about a month. I then picked it up and, because my expectations we [...]

    ONE is a superhero story. But it's so much more than that.It's the tale of a young woman finding herself. Of thinking and saying she's fine, but realizing she's totally not. Merrin, the main character, sees herself as broken, and sets out to "fix" herself. She wants to find a way to make herself whole.But really, she never needed to.When she meets Elias, and they find out how compatible they are, she runs. My husband put it this way, "It's like she was so comfortable with being uncomfortable, th [...]

    Despite being a superhero newbie, I enjoyed One. It's a little bit superhero, a little bit sci-fi, and definitely a little bit paranormal romance. (But don't worry -- no love triangles here.)Merrin was a unique and appealing main character. She's very into chemistry and also a drummer, which I thought was super-cool. I loved the book's Nebraska setting. I've never been there, but this book describes the landscape in way that made me want to remedy that. As the book explains, the so-called "mutan [...]

    Merrin's story drew me in from the start, she is a strong MC that fights for what she wants, even if what she wants changes along the way.One has a dystopian setting where you have to have two powers to be a Super if you want to be 'someone important'. The next best thing is to be a Normal - with no powers and you live away from Supers- with well, a normal life. Or you can be sort of a freak and have just one power, not quite fitting in either world. Merrin is a One. And she wants nothing more t [...]
