TW: homophobia, ableism, violence and body horror typical of superhero comics. Michael Urie (Marc of Ugly Betty) narrates this book with perfection. I honestly can't think of anyone else who could've done a better job. He gets all the nuances of Thom down pat, from his eagerness to please to his f...

This book was a ride and a half! And then another ride! I haven’t had this much fun in a long time, and still, there were moments of near despair here. YA at its very best. What a fantastic book. If I ever get any superpowers, I think the power to heal others would be right up my alley. Non-conf...

This book took on a little more than it could handle, perhaps, but I enjoyed it. I'd love to read more about the MCs though!

A nice, straight-forward coming-of-age story w/ all the standard elements of superhero genre, & overall a fun to read if one doesn't mind the somewhat (intentionally) pulp-like writing. IMO it succeeds wonderfully regarding the author's intention i.e. increasing positive visibility of lgbt ppl & oth...

I will admit. This book lacked alot, but it also had great points to it too.Let me start from the beginning. This book follows the exploits of a teenage boy who's father was once a great superhero. In fact, in their universe, superheroes provide the highest point of justice there is. His father desp...

I really wanted to like this book. A YA novel about a gay superhero--cool! And yet, despite the author's obvious attempts to break away from the standard, cliched superhero lore, there remains quite a bit of disappointingly standard fare. For example: most of the female characters are irritating cli...
