Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillians) by Lauire Boyle Crompton

  First let me start off by saying the cover stands out and I love the pink hair! They synopsis drew me in. This believable teenage story will capture teen readers. The beginning of the book lags a little, but stick with it, it gets better. Quirky teen Blaze is chauffer to her little brother, and serves as his surrogate mother while their mother is at work. She is attracted to his soccer coach Mark, who is also Mr. Popular at her school. Everything goes down hill when she “sext” him a picture. The plot is realistic for modern aged teens. I do not think you will be disappointed with this one.

From Goodreads

Blaze is tired of spending her life on the sidelines, drawing comics and feeling invisible. She's desperate for soccer star Mark to notice her. And when her BFF texts Mark a photo of Blaze in sexy lingerie, it definitely gets his attention. After a hot date in the back of her minivan, Blaze is flying high, but suddenly Mark's feelings seem to have been blasted by a freeze-ray gun, and he dumps her. Blaze gets her revenge by posting a comic strip featuring uber-villain Mark the Shark. Mark then retaliates by posting her "sext" photo, and, overnight, Blaze goes from Super Virgin Girl to Super Slut. That life on the sidelines is looking pretty good right about now...
