Super Book: Hero
By Mike Lupica
Puffin Books, 2011. Fiction
Zach always looked up to his dad, who globe-trotted the world being the President’s troubleshooter. What he never knew was that what made his dad so good at his job was that he had superhuman powers—powers that Zach learns he has, too. When the Bads come after him after killing his father, Zach has to decide if he wants to step into his father’s role even though he is still a teenager and be the hero.
High action adventure with a mixture of humor, mystery and fantasy make this book one of my favorites. Good choice for a reluctant reader and a great book to listen to to keep you entertained on a road trip.
