It looked like the writer had a solid grip on the idea of a super hero in a small town and a middle school student obsessed with super heroes.

Nate Banks' obsession goes into overdrive when his hometown gets its own super hero. Eventually, a super villain pops up and she has to deal with him. The real thrust of the story though is Nate learn

Recommends it for: young comic book fans
Recommended to Annalea by: my daughter
I borrowed this from my daughter for research for an upcoming project. It was a cute, fun read. My daughter, whose opinion matters more than mine in this case, absolutely loves it. She would give it five stars; I'd give it three, so I averaged them for this review. If your child likes superheroes, they will probably like this book.
Another Superhero book for Summer Reading Club.

And another cute one, suitable for boys or girls.
I really really liked it .It was obvious who the bad guy is.I can't what for the 2nd book
If your kids like superheros, this is a great book to read with them!
