it was amazing

This book is like reading a comic book, including the smart banter, the action, the super powers. But it's more meaty. Instead of getting 26 colored pages, you get about 300 pages of story.

This book is basically like Percy Jackson meets Avengers. It starts out with Marrow- he is the main character- trying to score really high on his superhero placement test. He's basically a really powerful superhero who has the power to change his bone density, allowing him to smash through walls and jump really really high since he can make himself very heavy or very light. He gets teamed up with his least favorite superhero as his sidekick, Flex. Flex has stretchy powers, and Marrow think that's kind of dumb. They end up having to figure out how to work together even though sometimes they really get on each other's nerves. There's a super awesome climax that I won't spoil here, with twists that you don't expect. You just have to read it for yourself.

I would see this book is really good for anyone who likes Hunger Games or Maze Runner, but it also has an added touch of humor that makes it unique. It's especially awesome if you love comic books or superheroes. Even if you don't you will be engaged with the story. I recommended it!
