I’ve decided that on Mondays I’ll also share a few books coming out this week that I think my follwers, my students (and me of course) might like. I’ll also mention what book I’m reading just because it’s a Monday habit.
There are several coming out this week that look good.
Twelve-year-old Daniel, the new kid in town, soon learns the truth about his nice—but odd—new friends: one can fly, another can turn invisible, yet another controls electricity. Incredible. The superkids use their powers to secretly do good in the town, but they’re haunted by the fact that the moment they turn thirteen, their abilities will disappear—along with any memory that they ever had them. Is a memory-stealing supervillain sapping their powers?
The answers lie in a long-ago meteor strike, a World War II–era comic book (Fantastic Futures, starring the first superhero, Johnny Noble), the green-flamed Witch Fire, a hidden Shroud cave, and—possibly, unbelievably—“powerless” regular-kid Daniel himself.
Superhero kids meet comic book mystery in this action-filled debut about the true meaning of a hero.
The next book I’m reading: Candle Man: The Society of Unrelenting Vigilance by Glenn Dakin. Click the title for more about it.
